Transformers Bunk Bed

Transformers Ultra Magnus bunk bed by davesgeekyideas

Another bunk bed design, this one based on interim Autobot leader Ultra Magnus. His car carrier/transport alt-mode is ideal for a bunk bed configuration, with the truck cab being used for storage.

If you want to take this idea even further, you could park a few car beds on it (both given an Autobot makeover of course), but that would require an even bigger Ultra Magnus.

Side note: here is a cool Optimus Prime bunk bed that was made for a couple of lucky rugrats.

Robocop Data Spike USB Drive Bay

Robocop Data Spike by davesgeekyideas

Recently I was in the market for a USB Hub/Card Reader for my desktop PC, which would slot into a drive bay (like a DVD-R drive). I thought it would be funny if such a device included a gag port for Robocop’sdata spike“.

OCP branding would be an added bonus too. Imagine if there was a line of consumer gadgets with the OCP logo? Being defective or shoddy would be a feature.

Star Wars Landspeeder Bed And Other News

Star Wars Landspeeder Bed by davesgeekyideas

Big post today! Like the previous post, here is another bed design that I discarded a few months ago, because several others beat me to the punch. I’m posting it now because I felt there needed to be a design that was more functional and aimed at grown-ups.  Read the rest of this entry

Ghostbusters Bunk Bed

Ghostbusters Bunk Bed by davesgeekyideas

Actually started on this one before the Jurassic Park bunk bed, but stopped because I felt it looked too much like a School Bus. Thought I’d share it now because it’s still fun to look at.

The ladder is usually on the passenger side of the vehicle, however I moved it over for presentation purposes. The front of the Ecto-1 would serve as a trunk for storage.

Kingsman: The Secret Service Wallpapers

Kingsman The Secret Service and Valentine wallpapers by davesgeekyideas

Sorry I haven’t posted in ages! I’ve been swamped. Here are 2 new wallpapers for Kingsman: The Secret Service.

The Kingsman get a couple of desktop wallpapers, while Valentine gets a wallpaper for all the mobile devices. Both designs are accurate to the film.

Projection Gameboard

Projection Gameboard concept by davesgeekyideas

You know those neat projection keyboards? I think they could be used for interactive board games as well. This would allow you to instantly fire up a game of Settlers Of Catan or RISK, and without setting up all the pieces. Better yet, you could save games too, just like a video game.

Projected games would feature the usual board game elements: rolling dice, sliding pieces around, and so on. However the dynamic projection would allow for cool effects like zooming in, panning the board game around, and lots of animation.

Projection Gameboard concept by davesgeekyideas

For this design I wanted multiple projections from 4 sides to ensure the game board stays visually intact at all times, so I went for this “hula hoop” design to encircle the game board. For added functionality, it folds up to a crescent shape so that it can be used as a vanilla projection keyboard.

I’m really just scratching the surface with this concept. Could the projected games be in full color? Could this device interact with actual pieces (dice)? Could it work with physical card decks (each card with a scan code)? Could it emit sounds for the game? I’d like to think this device can do all of that and more, there’s plenty of potential here.

Batman Coffee Table

Batman Coffee Table design by davesgeekyideas

Here’s a coffee table design based on the “armory” from The Dark Knight that rises from the floor in the Batcave. In order to function as a coffee table, the armory appears to be only partially raised. Read the rest of this entry
