Modular Graphics Card

Modular Graphics Card design by Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas

I currently own a Nvidia GTX 960 card and I’m in the market for a new graphics card*. In a perfect world I could just add 4GB of RAM and some quieter fans to my existing card, which would set me up for a few more years, but this just isn’t possible. So that got me thinking, why aren’t graphics cards modular?

Doug Bluetooth Speaker

This is Doug the talking dog from Pixar’s UP. The speaker is the nose, the controls and indicator light are on his collar. He could say his more popular phrases (I LOVE YOU or SQUIRREL) on demand. This could also be an Alexa device if Amazon ever decides to make themed gadgets.

Hockey Rec Room Design

This is an old design that I’m bringing over from my hockey blog. It is the hockey pad of my dreams! The centerpiece of the design is a floating entertainment unit that is mounted onto a wall (adorned with a crowd mural) that looks like an NHL scoreboard, this is where the TV sits.

Hitchhiker’s Guide Amazon Alexa Design

Amazon recently announced several new Alexa devices so I thought I would make one that is inspired by Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, at least the one seen in the movie (which used voice commands for queries). I sort of got carried away and made 5 devices in one package, see below. 

Nintendo Power Strip

This Nintendo design was inspired by a power strip I bought recently. It looked like a plain white generic thing, but when I plugged it in it became this TRON-like device thanks to some translucent blue plastic throughout the sides. It only used the one LED light located under the switch, and I thought it was a neat way to expand the light’s usage.

Nintendo R.O.B. Raspberry Pi Case

In the past few years Kintaro and RetroFlag have released a bunch of Nintendo-inspired cases for the Raspberry Pi 3, and they are all pretty darn impressive (personally I’m holding out for a Sega Genesis version). Thought I would design a case for the tiny Raspberry Pi Zero based on the R.O.B. toy.

Doctor Strange Smartwatch

Doctor Strange Time Stone Smartwatch Apple design by Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas

I’ve been meaning to do a Time Stone watch or clock for a few years now, but I couldn’t think of a way to capture the green time effects. A round smartwatch display could handle that, so I made this design. The Time Stone is a button that activates the display. The red strap represents Doctor Strange’s cape.
