    Joe Walser has said the dash readout is coming in mass production (as an alarm clock) and it's supposed to be very accurate and functional. No idea when we'll actually see it or how accurate it will be. Everyone remembers Bob Gale and the Hoverboard incident.

    Yeah, I remember them talking about that a while back.....from Temporal FX. I guess I will hold off for a while on ordering or trying to make something myself. I wonder if it'll just be the time display in a simple enclosure since its suppose to be an alarm clock, or if it'll be the full size enclosure with the keypad just like what would go in the car. Hopefully we will hear about this soon.

    I haven't been in touch with EFX lately but they are the company that will be bringing the TCD to production along with Temporal FX. The displays and enclosures are intended to be fully accurate but function as an alarm clock and use a TRW style keypad as input for setting date and time. From a component standpoint it would be a good jumping off point to build something that you could put in a DeLorean. The guts could be transferred over to actual LMB boxes and aluminum welded housing and the electronics could be modified. That, or there was some early discussion about a "car mode" that would function more like the movie prop.

    If you're interested Joe may have more recent details or you could contact EFX directly on their website. https://efxcollectibles.com/
