Escape From New York, Snake Plissken Presidential Cardiac Pulse GPS Tracker

Master Replicas movie prop

Last September I began working on my version of the Presidential Tracker seen being used by Snake Plissken as he tries to locate the President.. I worked on my prototype when I had the chance to do so and finally finished it up about a week ago. My tracker is NOT made from an old Tiger Sub Wars Handheld game from the 80s. I did not have the heart to tear the one I found apart so I took the time and fabricated everything myself based on the old hand held game, pictures, and video of the movie & prop.

My version of the tracker is slightly thicker and I have added my own engraving on the back. In the movie you never really see the back so I just used some creative license of my own.



How it works:

My tracker starts up just like the hand held game did with a slide switch on the side and indicates that it is active by a blinking red LED in the upper left corner. Once on, you have the option of choosing between 2 tracking modes.

Each mode can be activated by a small push switch on the upper side right back.

Track 1: Starts from the upper left hand corner and follows a trail of leds diagonally to the bottom right corner, with a set of beeps. (This was shown in the movie when Snake is at the wrecked Air Force One Jet)

Track 2: Starts at the lower right and work backward diagonally back to the center until it finally comes to the center and indicates you have found the president, or at least who Snake thought was the president.

Both tracking modes can be activated separately or one can follow the other to create just one track.

In the end this is a project that I have wanted to complete for a long time and am happy with the final prototype. I plan on making a final movie quality tracker by printing at a higher print setting, my prototype was printed at standard so I could make sure everything worked.

Well thanks for looking and let me know what you think or any critiques.
