  New run in production
Good news! A new run is now in production. If you would like to be contacted as soon as they are available to order, register your details by clicking the button below.
The GIZMO 8410 is the updated version of our popular Sanyo ICC-808D calculator circuit board replica - used as costume accessories in the early stages of filming for Ghostbusters in 1983. It is true to the dimensions of the original board and comes complete accurate components and adjustable lighting effects.

The 8410 now includes real working circuitboards that recreate all of the fine details of Sanyo's vintage calculators with gold-plated pads that make this the Rolls Royce of belt gizmos! The kit comes partially assembled - all the custom components and electronics needed for the lighting effects have been pre-made for you and simply attach to the gizmo using connectors on the board itself. All other non-functioning components can be attached in anyway you like, therefore SOLDERING IS OPTIONAL!

This updated kit also features a detachable daughterboard and new swappable battery cable that plugs into a connector at top of the unit.

Tool required for this kit:
• Soldering iron (recommended but optional)
• Hot glue gun (required if not soldering)
• Cyanoacrylate (super glue)
• Pliers (narrow or needle-nose)
• Wire Cutters
• Wire Strippers or Craft/X-Acto Knife
• Scissors
• Small Phillips screwdriver (suitable for M2.5, M3 & M4 screws)
• Heat Source (heat gun or lighter)

It's all in the details.

Our updated Gizmo kits are no longer 3D printed - we have painstakingly studied every inch of the original Sanyo calculators to produce custom-made, professionally fabricated circuitboards that recreate all the fine details of those screen-used props. We include a full set of accurate components as well as fully finished replicas made exclusively for this kit - each one hand-set with their own accurate numbers and markings. We recommend soldering these components to the boards, however - as all the working electronics have been done for you - these can simply be glued to the rear of the board if you prefer.

Light 'em up!

Also included in the kit is a set of eight glass VFD tubes sourced from Russia or Eastern Europe - a good visual replacement for the rare GDT Nixie tubes used by Sanyo. These are augmented with a pre-assembled lighting asssembly. This includes nine super bright multicolor LEDs that have been integrated into the specially designed 'nixie shelf' and 'error box. Using a 9V battery, simply plug in the included cable to the connector on the top of the unit and you can adjust the pre-programmed light patterns and colours with a quick flick of the toggle switch and buttons on the control panel.

Leather holster also available.

Complete your kit with a screen-accurate leather holster - designed to fit your Gizmo like a glove! Available in GB1 and GB2 styles, these holsters are made from heavyweight veg-tan leather and set with brass snaps and rivets. Plus, order your Gizmo kit with a matching holster, and you will receive £9 off the combined price!
