ColecoVision Security Door Handle

Here is a security keypad and door handle combo that resembles a ColecoVision controller. This would make a great theft deterrent, as thieves are afraid of retro gamers.

The security keypad would be illuminated as well. I could see this emitting video game sound effects when keys are pressed for that added flair.

Sandbox Desk

A sandbox desk is the combination of an ultra-wide top drawer with a glass top, which creates a unique display space. For the above example I went with a train set, but you can throw anything in there you can imagine. Or just be boring and store office stationary.

Personally I would house a table hockey set. I could see others displaying their Warhammer 40K collection, or a RISK board game. What would you place inside?

Star Wars Blu-Ray Case

This is a really basic design: R2D2’s body is essentially a canister of Blu-Ray discs (approximately a dozen discs). Each disc is accessible via an extending drawer:

Each drawer is manually opened. To ensure the disc is fully clear of R2’s body the drawers would telescope (almost like extending the dinner table to add a center cross piece).

This case would be on the bigger side: about 7″ wide and 9 – 10″ tall. Given its size I feel it has room for lights and sounds, which I’m sure most fans would love.

Autobot Blaster Mini Bookshelf Stereo System

A few years ago they released an MP3 player based on Soundwave, but personally I wish they offered a stereo system based on his Autobot counterpart, Blaster. He would just look at home on the bookshelf or entertainment unit.

The only fancy thing I did was to embed a display in the negative space of the carrying handle.
