Stargate Surface Project
Dial the Stargate!
by Alex Spear and Emma DiQuinzio
For those of you not familiar with Stargate (either the movie or the T.V. show) the basic premise is this A Stargate is a ring-shaped alien device that creates a wormhole through space that allows travelers to enter into one Stargate and emerge from another one on a different planet. Travelers can set their destination using a DHD (Dial Home Device) similar to a telephone dial or touch pad (although much larger), the DHD is used to specify which other Stargate to connect to when opening a gate or wormhole to another location. The external symbols on the DHD represent star constellations, surrounding the central activation button.

The aim of our project is to recreate a DHD with all of the buttons that when dialed correctly will bring up an image of the alien planet that has been dialed. We also hope to include a of speed dial, or auto dial, that will take the guess work out of dialing a planet by doing it for you.
We Have Accomplished:
1) Creating all of the buttons
2) Assigning Glyphs to all of the buttons
3) Writing text for the instructions
We Have Learned:
1) How to make buttons
b) and how to move them
2) How to edit and replace the background
The Next Step:
1) Making the dialing (or at the very least the auto dial) work
2) Adding the instructions
