My Knight Industries 2000 or K.I.T.T. for easy reference ;) is coming along nicely. I was able to get a lot more done over the winter months than I thought. But now that the summer months are here I am able to get a lot more done. I realized that I have not uploaded anywhere near as many images to my DA account as I should, I've mostly been keeping people updated and informed of my progress through my Face Book page, and my Blog: 
www.myknightrider2000.blogspot…
I have even started uploading more to my Flickr account:

I'm getting so much done, the front end is almost complete, the rear twilight blackouts are done and I realized that I have not uploaded any shots of that to my DA account.... I'll have to get to that just for the lazy folks who don't follow links. lol in any event people who are REALLY interested and are Knight Rider fans will be able to keep up to date best on the accounts I have mention above, even my YouTube account gets a lot, a LOT of videos on K.I.T.T.s progress:

All that being said I'll have to try and see if I can find some time to upload more photos to my DA account.... but hey my fellow artist will understand what time is like when you are creatively busy ;)

My Interactive Monitors for my K.I.T.T. Project by sicklilmonkyMy K.I.T.T. Trajectory Guide Screen by sicklilmonky
I discovered recently that by using Unity 3D I can send information from a Unity made project to an Arduino micro controller to activate relays effective being able to control devices in the car by buttons on my touch screen monitors. So I started making my own interactive monitors for my K.I.T.T. in Unity 3D How freaking cool is that? :)

Dash In For A powered Up Test Fitting by sicklilmonky
Yesterday I finally got to getting the dash into my Trans Am for a powered up test fitting. Pretty happy with the result. I do have some minor tweaks and adjustments to do to get the dash to fit perfectly but I'm getting there!

And now a special presentation on MDK Graphics Puppet Theatre :)


TUESDAY NOVEMBER 22, 2016:
K.I.T.T. is getting smarter and smarter. It's funny you know when I first started this project to build my dream car; a replica of the "Knight Industries 2000" from the hit 1980's TV series "Knight Rider" and I began work on the dash software, I REALLY did not expect much from that end of it. I figured:
"Sure, I'll have some nice graphics, some animations, some cool sound effects.... something original but still keeping somewhat true to the design flavour of the TV show""
I NEVER even remotely imagined that the software part of the project would go as far as it has. Not being a code guy..... we actually I can't even really say that any more.... I have learned so much and have written so much code that at this stage I would say I'm more a "Code Novice.".... but anyways, I am truly blown away by how over 2 short years that this dash software has grown, how much it is capable of that has far, FAR exceeded anything I could have ever imagined that I would have been capable of accomplishing. I've had a lot of help along the way mind you, but there is vast amounts of the project I have figured out all on my own.
Currently K.I.T.T. is talking. He can trigger devices in the car through either the "KNIGHT O.S." interface or through speech commands, He knows what time of day it is so if you say to him;
"Hey KITT, is it breakfast time?"
And it's NOT, he'll respond with a few random replies that are suitable like:
"Are you Kidding me Michael?" Or "You must be joking".... etcetera.
Same thing for if you ask him if it is either Hot, cold, warm... is it lunch time, supper time... or even.
"Hey KITT, how was your day"
Unless it's past 5pm, day aint over yet so he'll just think you are kidding. But if the day is over he'll respond differently.
KITT know if it is Me he is talking to or if it is the public, especially in Surveillance Mode.
Heck I even have him able to play "Guess My Number" with me.... he will select a random number from 1 - 10 and you have to guess what it is, he will tell you if you are right or wrong and if you have guessed too low or too high.
KITT can also be in either a good mood or a bad mood based on what is said to him, if he is in a bad mood he responds to certain questions or commands quite differently.... so it's good to talk nice to KITT and keep him in a good mood otherwise you have some sucking up to do in order to get back into his good graces as it were ;)
Over the course of the winter I can scarcely imagine how much further we can push the KNIGHT O.S. software.
I post regularly to my www.youtube.com/knightriderguy So hopefully you'l pop by watch and subscribe for all the super cool updates on this project. ;)
