Calvin and Hobbes Papercraft: Transmogrifier Diorama

Calvin and Hobbes Papercraft

I’m trying to better my papercraft skills, so I thought I’d start simple by building the Weighted Companion Cube from Portal. Even that was too difficult! Why not something as simple as a cardboard box?      *light-bulb goes off*

Star Trek Enterprise Blu-Ray Case

Star Trek blu-ray case by Dave Delisle

Here I was thinking I was so clever about this Star Trek blu-ray case design, but then it turned out it was already made as an actual product (see below). Not sure how I arrived at something so similar. Usually I do some checking to see if it exists or not, and the official product didn’t show up on my radar.

Batman: The Animated Series Blu-Ray Case

BATMAN the animated series blu-ray case design by Dave's Geeky Ideas Dave Delisle 2011

This design is a canister based on the cylinder-shaped parking spot in the Batcave seen in Batman: The Animated Series. A cover slides out of the way, allowing access to trays that swing out for accessing the discs. There is probably enough room for the complete series and all of the related films.

Tron Hockey Puck

TRON hockey puck design by Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas

I used to make fun of the absurd Fox Puck, but a part of me thinks it would look cool if the hockey puck had LED lights embedded within. It would look remarkably different for starters, the Fox Puck relied on graphics applied in the TV broadcast (much like the line of scrimmage in football); whereas the lights would emit from the actual puck and be cast onto the nearby ice surface, boards, skates, hockey sticks, etc.

The puck would be more apparent in scrums in the corner and in the crease. I don’t know if it would look like a blur of light from a slap-shot, but I’d like to think there would be some tracer effect.

Pepsi Perfect Arcade Stick

Pepsi Perfect Arcade Stick design BTTF 2018 dave delisle davesgeekyideas

Another Back to the Future design, inspired by the Pepsi Perfect seen in Part II. It’s a bat-style stick in the shape of a Pepsi Bottle, sitting above the Pepsi dispenser table seen in the film.

Originally this would be paired up with a screen for an arcade cabinet design, the screen being similar to the ones that featured Ronald Reagan and Michael Jackson in the film; but I liked this simple arcade stick design too much.
