I’m not an RPG gamer, I only checked out Witcher 3 because it reminded me of Red Dead Redemption due to the open world and horseback travel. Once I started playing I was hooked, within weeks I beat the main game and both expansions, then had another go because there were so many mission and story possibilities.

Here is a geeky fragrance bottle design (for a cologne or perfume) based on the plutonium rods from the first Back to the Future film. It features a pump spray and a fancy cargo container case. I’d like to see more geeky-themed fragrance products out there, because many of us geeks could smell better. I’m just saying.
This would look great on the bathroom counter with the shaving cream from Jurassic Park.

About 3 years ago ATGames released the Colecovision Flashback, a throwback console that looked decent and featured a solid collection of games, but unfortunately had poor sound and controls.

If you’re not familiar, Everdrives are flashcarts which store games via an SD card, and there are currently several on the market for cartridge-based systems, including the SNES. Thought I’d utilize the built-in LEDs, which happen to be the same colors as a traffic light, for this fun Mario Kart-inspired design.
Everdrives are a bit pricey but they can do some pretty cool stuff besides playing ROMs on original hardware, such as the ability to add CD-quality music to games. I would love to play Zelda: A Link to the Past with an orchestral score, or TMNT IV with arcade-quality music and sound effects.
