Back To The Future Watch

BTTF Watch Design Mag Shoes NIKE 2018 Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas

Is wearable tech still a thing? Here is a wristwatch version of the Nike Mag, otherwise known as those self-lacing shoes from Back to the Future Part II. The design cues borrow from the strap and ankle brace.

The replica shoes Nike released in 2011 and 2016 still fetch obscene prices on eBay today, so I felt an alternative/affordable product would be ideal for BTTF fans. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the sequel, so hopefully something like this will be offered to celebrate the occasion.

Back To The Future Gym Bag

Back-To-The-Future-NIKE-Gym-Bag-2017-Dave-Delisle-davesgeekyideas

This is something NIKE could throw together and sell tomorrow if they really wanted to: a gym bag based on the NIKE container from Back to the Future II, which stored the clothes Marty changed into. Just need the neon green logo and FOOTWEAR emblazoned on a round bag that has clear mesh panels on the sides.

Zelda Hookshot Pendant

Zelda Hookshot Necklace Jewelry

A pendant of Link with his trusty hookshot serving as a chain, what’s not to like? It’s a lot friendlier than my original idea, which was based on Attack On Titan (where you are the titan). You could probably do a standalone hookshot necklace, but the addition of the character truly completes this design. 

Lord Of The Rings Jewelry Box

This is a jewelry box that features a built-in Ring of Power which illuminates when the box is open, sort of like a fridge light. It sits on a perch (which houses the LEDs and batteries), looking over a reservoir for other jewelry.

Sentinel Robot Public Sculpture/Comic-Con Prop

X-Men Sentinel Robot Giant Head Sculpture Prop X-Men Comic-Con Cosplay Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas.com

This is something I that I thought would make for a fun (and geeky) public art sculpture: the severed head of a Sentinel robot from the X-Men comics. It would be neat in a public park, however I feel it would be very much at home on a university or college campus as a nod to the Xavier Institute.

In all honesty I doubt any city or school would permit such a geeky art installation, so I think this would be a neat prop that could be parked at comic conventions. Cosplayers and geeks could get their picture taken with the fallen robot, which would be a pretty cool keepsake.

This art installation/show prop could have lights in the eyes, which adds a bit of flavor. The Sentinel could blink back to life momentarily or stare angrily for prolonged periods of time.

Maybe that fella who built the life-size Skeletor could make this?

If you dig this please check out my take on geeky landmarks.

One last thing: the Sentinels have to be in the new X-Men: Days Of Future Past film, right? That would be awesome.

Mr. Dressup Lunch Box

Mr. Dressup Lunch Box Trunk Design by Dave Delisle

If you’re Canadian who is 22 and older, you probably want one of these. As you know I am straight-up gangsta, and even I would want one.

All you would need is a red “construction worker” lunch box,  then decorate it (via paint or stickers) with a bunch of pretty flowers.
