Looking for input on a TARDIS console bar Answered

My boyfriend and I want to have a Who-themed room party at a sci-fi/linux convention in our area.  We've bounced around the idea of having a TARDIS console bar set up in a corner of the room, so I'd really appreciate ideas for the console that could easily be set up and broken down, as this is  going in a room we only have for a weekend.

Ideas for random gadgets and doo-hickeys, places to have alcohol and the like would be greatly appreciated as well.  So far we know we want to have a quarter or half keg in the center of the console, located behind us.

Leaning towards 10th's design, but might be willing to go for the 11th's more steam punk look.

Also, decorating tips for the room as a whole would be good.  So for we want to make roundels out of foam and stick them to the wall with tack to imitate the 10ths 'desktop theme' and to print a door sized TARDIS door to tack to the door to the hotel room.

The idea behind the party is that the hotel room and the TARDIS have merged, ala Time Crash.

First are you planning to make it out of cardboard or wood.
Second for all the do hickies get a ton of switches and button ranging from old to new. A good thing about this is it could be your own kind of control console also get a lot of tubes like wire connector or those that are kinda stretchy(this will tie in in 3...2...1...NOW! For the alcoholic drink dispenser put the source in the middle as you said based on if you want the middle timey wimey thing to go up and down will be how you put in the keg then use some tubes(See its tieing in)and get some source of pressurized air. It needs to be strong enough to get the drink in the cup with out being so strong you blow a hole in your cup or worse. So I suggest not using a compressure in stead use some sort of pump. I hope this helps out some(if not sorry only 15) sorry for the terrible spelling and great idea.
