So, lemme get this straight. You're suggesting a HAL lab? As someone who has played both Smash Bros. games, that is quite funny, actually. Anydangway, this is pretty darn cool. Someone needs to make an Alchemy Lab placed into an extradimensional foldable sheet of wood, to make it portable, just a thought.
When you consider the fact that he also has an NPC named Dave, I'd say that its a reference to the antagonist and protagonist (respectivly) of the movie 2001: A Space Oddessy. HAL labs are actually named after the computer IIRC.
