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.

Attack On Titan Pendant

Attack On Titan Necklace Pendant

Yesterday I posted a Zelda pendant, and in that post I mentioned my original intention was to make a design based on Attack On Titan. I’ve gotten quite a few responses asking about the discarded AoT design, so I decided to share the mock-up.

In the Zelda post I sort of implied that the 3D Maneuvering Gear would be used as the chain in some way, but I was probably a bit vague in my wording. My bad.

The reason I went with Zelda is that it would be more compact and, well, cute (I’m keeping my man card, thank-you). I felt AoT would be a bit too busy, despite the fun aspect of turning its wearer into a titan of sorts.

If this were actually made, I’d put the swords back in their sheaths to make this pendant less pointy.

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

LOTR jewelry box design by Dave Delisle

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.

LED T-Shirt Designs

Animated LED T-Shirts

A few years ago I scoffed at the idea of embedding LED lights into a T-shirt. Tacky was the word that came to mind. But then Tony Stark made it look cool, so now you can buy T-Shirts that mimic the appearance of an Arc Reactor beneath the surface of the shirt.

Geek Bling Part 10: Jabba The Hutt Necklace

Jabba The Hutt Necklace 2013 Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas.com

UPDATE: Etsy’s Rude and Reckless made one, please check it out here. Original post as follows: 

Happy May The Fourth!

This is technically a choke chain (oh I slay me) that features a Jabba The Hutt pendant. There are a few Jabba necklaces out there — much to my surprise — but all lacking the dark humor seen in the design above.

Such a necklace is destined to be worn by geeky girls you do not trifle with. Or worn by those who are a slave to fashion (okay okay I’ll stop).
