Way back in the prehistoric era, people used to watch movies in their cars. They did this at a place called a Drive-In Theater. It was so long ago, that cars were propelled by feet, pet dinosaurs were a thing, and they ate Bronto ribs instead of popcorn.
I simply redesigned the Amazon Fire Cube to look like a Drive-In speaker. The Fire Cube streams movies and has a smart speaker built-in, so I thought it was a good match. The volume knob is at the bottom, just like the original Drive-In speakers. The device should be all shiny and chrome, but I felt that was a bit much.
Here’s an ultrawide gaming monitor that has a stand inspired by the interior and exterior of a Gunstar ship, depicted in the display image. Pretty simple design, I just like the idea of my screen being a targeting computer, so to speak.
Same deal as a Nest thermostat, with a silver dial encompassing a screen, but given a HAL 9000 makeover. This could also be given personal assistant (Alexa, Siri) abilities, thanks to the speaker placement. The speaker and screen also lend themselves to intercom and security cam functionality.
It would be a neat device to have, but speaking as a Dave I’m a little hesitant about wanting one.
This design started out as a wardrobe, which was really boring. Then I saw some entertainment centers with sliding barn doors and thought they were cool so I ran with that instead. The barn doors are my personal preference, they may not be for everyone.

The final battle in Spaceballs took place in a washroom (I think) that was filled with hygiene products like those seen above. Thought I’d whip up a design and some bonus materials to allow fans to make their own Spaceballs-themed hygiene products.

This started as a neon pub sign, but I liked how it looked on a stand so I went with the lamp approach. It would look a lot better if the two characters were vinyl figures, but I just wanted to get the idea across.

In Toy Story 2 there was a display case seen in the Buzz Lightyear aisle that would make for a neat arcade cabinet in my opinion. Unfortunately the illuminated moon and rocket would make this tough to produce for even the most-skilled custom arcade cabinet makers.
If I could spare no expense I would get this made, but only after I have a Last Starfighter cab in my possession.
