Witcher Desk Clock

Witcher 3 clock face by Dave Delisle

In my opinion the “meditation clock” from Witcher 3 would be a neat clock for everyday use, however its 24-hour single hand display would be confusing, so I added a digital clock. The sun/moon displays would illuminate when the hand nears their location.

I’d like to do similar designs for Stardew Valley and other video games that feature an in-game clock display. Maybe one day down the road.

I wonder if anyone has made a Witcher-themed display for Apple Watch or other smart watches? Google tells me not yet.

Operation Board Game Power Bank

operation-board-game-power-bank-by-dave-delisle-davesgeekyideas-2017

Here is my spin on a power bank, one that looks like an old-school Operation board game. His nose is now an indicator light to show when a device is charging, and the surgery cavities are now cable ports. There are extra USB ports in the base.

I updated the character (who is known as Cavity Sam) to wear boxer shorts and have a more relaxed pose, which echos what Hasbro has done with their official game in the past dozen or so years. That dude looks too chill.

I’ll have a few more power bank designs posted in the coming days, stay tuned for those.

Sega And Nintendo Smartphone Docks

Sega and Nintendo smartphone chargers by Dave Delisle

Here’s a pair of smartphone dock designs that pay homage to a time when we plugged cartridges into other cartridges to play games. Back in the early 90’s such adapter cartridges like Sonic & Knuckles, the Super Game Boy, and Game Genies were pretty cool, you kids will have to take my word for it.

James Bond USB Car Charger

James Bond USB Car Charger by Dave Delisle

Here is a device design that is in the same vein as the Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger, but for fans of James Bond. A passenger eject button and toggle switches for weapons, what more does a car need? This is an expansion of the cigarette lighter cover I posted a few years ago. Read the rest of this entry

TRON Gaming Desk

Tron Gaming Desk by Dave Delisle

The Light Cycles are speakers, and the computer is built into the desk behind the illuminated TRON logo. But that’s not all! The main desk itself is a Recognizer vehicle. Read the rest of this entry

A Budget Nintendo Switch For Couch Gamers

Nintendo Switch by Dave Delisle

The Nintendo Switch was unveiled today, and it’s an impressive console that captures the best of both worlds: console and handheld gaming. There’s a lot to like here, I personally think the controller configurations have a lot of potential. Read the rest of this entry

Ghostbusters Electrical Panel Cover

Ghostbusters Electrical Panel Cover by Dave's Geeky Ideas

Seeing as the Ecto Containment Unit is a wall-mounted hub where many wires originate, I figured it would be a fun way to conceal electrical panels found in households (more so if the panel is in the basement). Your circuit breakers would now reside in a ghost prison.

Ecto-Containment-Unit-Electrical-Panel-Cover-2016-Daves-Geeky-Ideas

Instead of creating an electrical panel shaped like the Ecto Containment Unit, I felt a separate cover that sits atop an existing electrical panel would be easier and cheaper to install. The design is modular so it can safely bypass all the wiring. Read the rest of this entry
