Make: Projects – “You Have Just Been Poisoned” Pint Glass

Fans of Patrick McGoohan’s classic BBC spy series The Prisoner will recognize this gimmick from Episode 15, “The Girl Who Was Death.” It’s a pint glass with words etched on the bottom (in authentic “Village” font) that appear line-by-line as the liquid is imbibed. My version is the closest reproduction of the original I could achieve.

I have an old friend who is a rabid fan of the show, and I made her a set of four of these as a gift for her most recent birthday. The stencil art is attached to the project as a PDF, and is available in other popular vector formats from Thingiverse.
