Default Anyone build a nice launch control?

I had seen some nice launch control boxes on eBay years ago. Haven't seen any in awhile. I have seen instructables and other bits and pieces on the net out of electrical boxes, pvc box etc. Would be nice to see a build, maybe one that could set off multiple rockets.

Balsa machining makes a nice one.

I made this one this past spring. Found an old Coleco game and gutted it, used a card reader for the key, and other stuff just laying around. Used 18670 batteries for on-board power and also installed some banna jacks for other (car) use.
