Nintendo Switch Lamp

Nintendo Switch cradle by Dave Delisle

At first glance this is your typical LED desk lamp, with adjustable arm and pivoting light, nothing special. You park it by the couch or bed, and it blends into the scenery. But upon closer inspection this lamp becomes a handy device for for Switch gamers. Read the rest of this entry

Transformers PC Tower Case

Soundwave PC case mod by Dave Delisle

Those aren’t cassette spindles, they are PC case fans which help keep your expensive hardware cool. It was that idea that launched my latest design: a PC tower case based on the infamous Decepticon, Soundwave. Consoles inferior, PC superior, the monotone robot would say.

Ghostbusters Wall Hooks

Ghostbusters Wall Hooks by Dave Delisle

Recently I’ve been thinking about doing an interior for the Ghostbusters tiny house that I posted a few weeks ago, and one of my first thoughts was to make some coat hooks for the entrance. It then sprang into my head to use ghost traps, and they were amusing enough to warrant their own post so I’m sharing it here.

They not only serve as coat hooks, but as storage for your keys and wallet. There’s a small drawer behind the trap doors:

This is sort of thing I would force kids to make in shop class, instead of napkin holders and bird houses. I would then give them failing grades, confiscate their work, and sell the wares on eBay.

I was recently looking over some old Coleco table hockey players, and had an idea: die-cut stickers (meaning no white backdrop) on clear plastic blades. This approach would not only look good for those Coleco players, but for pixelated players too. Read the rest of this entry

The Fifth Element Wireless Router

The Fifth Element Wireless Router by Dave Delisle

A wireless signal is as crucial as water or air for most geeks, so it seems fitting that this wireless router design styles itself as The Fifth Element, savior of high bandwidth speeds. If you’ve seen the film, this gadget should be pretty self-explanatory, if you haven’t seen the film you should remedy that immediately.

Basically a 4-antennae wireless router with LED lights perched atop each antennae. The antennae do swivel at the base, if needed. Seeing as most routers are on 24/7, the antennae lights should be turned on by-demand for a brief light show; or perhaps they only illuminate when you’re downloading or uploading data.

Ghostbusters Tiny House

Ghostbusters Tiny House Firehouse by Dave Delisle

If you watch any of those DIY/home renovation channels on TV you might be aware of the latest home craze, tiny houses. These are small mobile homes which can be trucked anywhere with ease. I will now ruin this trend by making it geeky, starting with a design based on the Ghostbusters Firehouse. Read the rest of this entry
