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 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

TMNT Party Wagon Mini Fridge

TMNT Party Wagon by Dave's Geeky Ideas

I’ve seen quite a few geeky mini fridges lately, from Han Solo in Carbonite to Iron Man. While it’s great that there are so many options for geeks to choose from, none of them have grabbed me personally. So if it were up to me, I’d make a design based on the TMNT Party Wagon.

The box shape is optimal for storage, and that iconic door (used for ramming Foot ninjas) swings open like a fridge door, so it’s a perfect fit.

The one shown here is big enough for a 12-pack of soda and a sandwich. However if the wheels were entirely on the outside of cabin there’d be even more room for food. You could even upscale this van for a much larger fridge, with storage in the door too. This could also be down-scaled to fit 4-6 sodas so it doesn’t take up too much room on your desk.

Slurm Vending Machine Fridge

Slurm Vending Machine Fridge by davesgeekyideas

Thought I’d design a fun fridge that looks and works like a vending machine. This would be ideal for any soda or beer company theme (Coke, Nuka-Cola, Duff Beer), but for this post I figured Futurama’s Slurm would be best. Read the rest of this entry

Homer Simpson Desk

Homer Simpson office desk by Dave's Geeky Ideas

An office desk that looks like Homer Simpson’s control panel which looks like a partially-eaten donut. Not quite an Inception level of deep, but close enough for me. With this desk, you’d be able to “work” like Homer, which is essentially leaning back and putting your feet up to relax on the job.

The panels, which are adorned with numerous gauges and buttons (not unlike a flight cockpit), slide out of the way to reveal a flat desk surface:

All of the electronic lights and displays could function, but that would be a wiring nightmare. I’d settle for a few functional knobs for things like a volume control or PC power switch. Not shown: embedded speakers, a few drawers and cubby holes for storing junk, and grommets for wiring.

RCKY T-Shirt Solicitation

RCKY T-Shirt

UPDATE: My first foray into crowdfunding has ended, and the Teespring campaign to offer these t-shirts did not reach its goal. I’m bummed because people tell me all the time to Kickstart this or Indiegogo that! Oh well, them’s the brakes. Obviously I won’t be attempting to crowdfund apparel items again, mostly because there’s so many outlets for that kind of merch online.

Recently I did the art for this Dinobots tee for 80’s Tees (the hilarious idea was theirs), so do check that out.

A Few Small Ideas

Zelda Gravestone Graveyard Cemetery

1. Cartridge Tombstones. I thought this was too macabre to post here, but it’s been popular on Tumblr so it can’t be all bad. Sure it’s a fun spin on tombstones, but I doubt any cemetery would permit them. However that will change when we geeks complete our world takeover in 2019. I said too much.

Balrog Street Fighter in Punch-Out!!

2. Modding Punch-Out!! If I had the technical know-how, I would love to edit the game sprites to include some pop culture boxers: Balrog from Street Fighter (above); Rocky, Ivan Drogo, Appolo Creed, and Mr. T from the Rocky movies; Honey Roy Palmer (what? I like Diggstown); the Kangaroo from Looney Tunes; and I know I’m forgetting a few. As for real boxers like Tyson and Ali, I feel they are best left to EA’s Fight Night sim.

3. Borg Wireless Charging Station. This is an old post, but I remade the art and I think it looks coo. I’ve been redoing art for a bunch of older stuff lately. Here is another example.

And that’s all for this roundup. If this were a YouTube video I’d be begging you to subscribe about now (though I’ll settle for being bookmarked). Have a nice Tuesday.
