Yep, I once ask a manufacturing company (specialized in paper products: i.e food trays, cups, etc) if it was possible to make Blade Runner tiles (Deckard's and Tyrell's ). Sure they said, but to do the aluminium mold (very costly) and get some kind of small profit on each tile, I would've had to buy a minimum of 20.000 tiles to make it even...yeah; I can see myself trying to sell those well in my '80s
I chatted with someone today about possibly making some lenses too. He was doubtful.Okay, so I doubt this will interest many folks, but I've contacted a lens element manufacturer and I've asked them what it would cost to produce a dozen copies of an imitation secondary lens element. This would sit beneath the eBay-sold primary element. It would look like this.
However it'd end up around $90 USD, which is frankly a lot. But I thought I'd put this out there in case other folks might be interested. Anyone?
