Final result - it is complete

A project log for A functional Stargate

It won't transport me, but it will transport something across vast distances

I hope that at this point you have read enough description in the project logs that I don't have to go into too much detail here. Rather, I want to show you a video of the complete stargate in action. In this video there are two ends of the wormhole, one in Utah and one in Japan. On one end is the stargate and it's remote dialer. On the other end is a dialing computer simulator. First in the video the gate end dials and the simulator receives, then the other way around. The motion/animation and sounds occur simultaneously on both ends, but due to video editing issues, things may not sync well in the video.

Here it is:

With this result we have accomplished what we set out to do, though it would have been nice if we had time to build a second gate for the other end. Each of the three team members contributed a vital portion of the project as follows.
Brando - extracted and processed the sounds from stargate videos
dkopta - wrote all of the software running on the computers
shlonkin - built the physical stargate and electronics

Also, we have tried to share all files, schematics and build details, but if you find something missing, or if you want some specific info, please leave a comment and I'll do what I can.
