Kristian’s Stargate project

I have a made a “working” Stargate model from the SG1 TV-show. It spins, the chevrons move and lights up and when a correct address is dialled, the wormhole is established. The wormhole is an infinity mirror effect. The stargate is controlled with a DHD. You can check out the video presentation of the Stargate in action here:

Here is a video showing one Stargate dialing another Stargate

I like 3d printing, electronics, programming and making stuff. I also enjoy the Stargate TV-series and decided to make a “working” model of the stargate as seen in the TV-show.

This was a challenging and fun project and I had to learn a lot of new stuff. This has been a very time-consuming project. There are a few variations of Stargates used in the show and I chose to make the original one from the SG1 series. There are also several logical “glitches” in the technical workings of the gate as seen in the TV show and it even behaves differently in different episodes. I have made it work as best I can while staying as true as possible to the feeling and essence of the TV-Show.

Features

  • A fully interactive working Stargate complete with a DHD (Dial Home Device).
  • The Stargate ring spins and places the dialled symbol on the correct chevron as the traveller is inputting the address by using the DHD.
  • All 7 chevrons move and lights up when engaged.
  • The Stargate can dial any milky-way address used in the show.
  • NEW: The stargate can now dial other stargates over the Internet, and receive incoming wormholes from other stargates on the Internet.
  • When a correct address is input using the DHD, the wormhole is established.
  • The wormhole effect consists of a animated infinity mirror of 122 LED’s.
  • Complete with sound effects from the TV Show.
  • When the wormhole stays open, selected random audio clips from the TV-Show is played.
  • As in the TV-Show the wormhole can stay open for 38 minutes. When the time limit is reached, a random quote from the show where the time limit is mentioned is played and the wormhole disengages.
  • Do not dial the black hole.
  • The Stargate itself is about 39 cm in diameter.

    I also mad a wrong purchasing in www amethystly com, i’m hope, revolut Wil refund this.

    1. Yea they got me as well now this so called Karen is saying its so good and have great reviews. Bullshit I say. Ive already told them I don’t want it anymore and give my.money back. Let’s hope they do

  2. So they got back to me when I asked if it was a scam and to get my money back and well they said this. May I know the reason for the cancellation of the order? The quality of our products is very good, and the sales volume is also very good. Most of our customers are from the United States and Europe, and the feedback from our customers is also very good. You can rest assured to buy our products, and you can contact us if you have any questions after receiving the package. I hope you can think about it again and wish you a happy life.

    1. Hi. I got the same answer to my email that I want to cancel. To this day nothing has happened except lies. I contacted PayPal and activated the buyer protection.

      1. Hi. I placed an order a few days ago on a “Gemstone” website. Is it a scam? how did you activate Paypal’s buyer protection? Thanks in advance for your help, and great job to the creators ! it would deserve to be marketed 🙂

        1. hi adrien.ich called paypal and described the case. since they are familiar with such scams, they have activated buyer protection.

  3. Awesome job. Saw an add on Facebook for this and right away knew it was scammer. I don’t know why facebook lets them advertise. Anyway Awesome job and let me know if you ever decide to make and sell them.

    GREAT WORK! I almost got scammed too by [Link removed] glad I found you the real deal instead. PLEASE keep up the amazing work!

    1. Hi Daniel Patrick Wilson,
      Thanks for informing me. The link you sent was new. I have seen 11 different domains claiming to sell these now.

  5. Hey Kristian, here is another one!

    [link removed]

    I stupidly fell for it (my Stargate fanboyism got the best of me) and am trying to get my money back. My only saving grace is that it was through Paypal, so I may have some recourse to recover my money.

  6. I was actually going to get one from a scam site.. bitterly disappointed. I would love.to get a hold of one for my upcoming stargate dnd sessions.

  7. This is absolutely INCREDIBLE. I can’t believe it! Congratulations on the final product of all your hard work. I am gobsmacked.

  8. Dimitris Koskinas

    Hi there, these guys are selling your stargate on facebook. If it is not you, you should be informed. [link removed]

    Wow, Love it. I already built my working Stargate. I always wanted a working event horizon. Now you provided me the inspiration. I may tackle the DHD after that.

  10. I ALMOST fell for the scam tonight…. thank God i found this. Blessing and a curse… the things i would do to get my hands on this.

  11. I like Adam bought one and now waiting for my refund. I was very disappointed and highly pissed off after finding out it was a scam. Has anyone actually received and order of one? Or, is this scam too new to know yet? Luckily I used Paypal and can submit a fraud case. Also if anyone else did does your Paypal payment show it was sent to karenmitchell015@gmail.com?

    1. Karen Mitchell definitely sucks! Damn Karen.

      They got me too!, $89.99?? I’ll spend that, no problem,

      I just got off the phone with PayPal to file a bait and switch claim.

      I wish that Kristian would put this on IndieGoGo, Sell 50000 of them and have them mass produced. I’ll buy a few.

      1. Ugh, I fell for it too… >_< The Stargate fan in me got the best of me.

        And it's the same witch; Karen Mitchell.

        Though she actually responded to my cancellation request, playing dumb and asking for a reason for the cancellation.

        But that may actually help if I am forced to open a Paypal dispute. Communication trail will help establish the fraud.

        1. Karen says the same to me. I think we should take her to court for what she has done stupid bitch she is.

      2. I also fell in. Paypal was already called in and a case was opened. I also tried to cancel. And the karen only got lies

    2. Ahh…Karen Mitchell is at it again. Last year she advertised a Star Trek USS Enterprise Christmas tree topper that had lights and sound FX for roughly $20. When it turned up, all there was in the package was a cheap gold glittered plastic star that you can get in a 99c shop/£1 shop. Fortunately I got my money back from PayPal. I later discovered that the photos of the Star Trek tree topper were from Hallmark and was just under $100.

  12. Hi, I got excited when seing an add, then remember I had one of your video saved somewhere… bit sad to see it’s a scam but was reported. If you need the name of one more scam website www nostalgia NY com

  13. I first saw this on a Facebook scam. Would have loved one also.
    Now I’m seeing it daily – Facebook obv targets me with Stargate ads, but now I see a new fake store name every day trying to sell this to unsuspecting buyers. Keep reporting them but Facebook needs to step up protecting people and shut it down already. It’s such a great creation and real shame it’s being used in this way to defraud people.

  14. Reported an ad on pretending to sell this on tiktok, I got excited when I saw it “for sale” but I know tiktok is rife with fake sellers so googled around to check it’s legitimacy and found this site. Amazing piece of work, it’s a shame you’re not selling them yourself, I’d even buy a more simplified one, with just the lights and no functionality with the buttons!

    Anyway, great work, love it!

      1. These sites are using everything from your site, including the descriptions. Can you file lawsuits?

  15. Lots of scumbag scammers around lately it seems. I presume the one here is a scam too?

    [link removed]

    I was very tempted given the price, but thought I’d check around first.

      1. Could you change the pictures and videos you have on your site showing any more functionality but watermark them? At the least that would help avoid scammers stealing them.

  16. Hi i just brought a stargate like the one u showed from a website called Amethystly store. And now iam wondering if its a scam or the real thing. Could u help me thanks

      1. Ok thanks ive just asked for my money back so hopefully they can get it back and ive also reported them for being a scam. Thanks for letting me know

        1. Hi Adam.
          If you manage to get your money back, I would appreciate it if you would let us know. It might help others in the same situation.
          Thank you.

          1. So far I’ve not got my money back they have not replied to any emails yet it still says its paid and awaiting shipment

    1. I regret to say Amethystly was one of the first scam sites. I’m currently having a go-round with Paypal to try and retrieve my payment. If Paypal doesn’t fix this soon, I’m going for a credit card chargeback.

    2. Hello. did you pay with paypal? then switch on the buyer protection as soon as possible. report the seller to paypal. this is fraud and you will otherwise get no money back
