Deadpool Skee-Ball Machine

As part of my continuing quest to ruin all things found in a rec room (see Foosball Table, Arcade Cabinet, and Table Hockey designs), I turned my attention to the Skee-Ball machine. I went with a Deadpool theme, that’s pretty much all there is to say. Ticket dispenser and novelty prizes are not included.

Metroid Gunship Tent

Another spaceship-as-a-tent design for your eyeballs, this time based on Samus’ trusty Gunship from the Metroid series. Can you imagine seeing this parked at a campsite? The tent’s owners clearly mean business, whether its exploring, hunting, or um, sitting inside playing video games all day — all valid reasons to own such a tent.

Transforming Arcade Cabinet

Here’s an arcade cabinet that can transform into a driving cabinet, ideal for playing a greater variety of arcade games while saving some space in your living quarters. This is my dream gaming device, allowing me to stand up and play Pac-Man, or sit on my butt and play American Truck Simulator.

Flying Lantern Candle Holders

This is not a geeky design, but it was inspired by the films Kubo and the Two Strings and, uh, Tangled. I’m speaking of the ceremonial lanterns that float on water or fly into the sky en masse.

These are glass holders for tealight candles, which sit directly on a surface or are elevated by wine stems of varying height. The candles are then concealed by a cover made of frosted glass, a much much safer option than paper, obviously.

Sorry for the underwhelming pic, but imagine a few dozen of these candles together, sitting at varying heights, all appearing to float in the air. The frosted glass covers could be made in all shapes and colors, and could be adorned with symbols and whatnot.

Stay Puft Round Bed

Another item I was thinking of creating for the interior of the Ghostbusters Tiny House, a round bed design based on Stay Puft’s sailor hat. It wouldn’t be a life-size replica, but this large bed would be an eye-catching addition to any geek’s bedroom.

I made the red tassle into a headboard for this design, but if you wanted you could ditch the headboard and attach a loose red tassle to the center of the blanket and have it hang over the side, just like the actual hat. Not pictured: white pillows and a white blanket, to blend in with the hat.

On a related note, I’m surprised no one made a round bed based on the OREO cookie. Looking at round beds for my research I was constantly reminded of the cream-filled snack. Now you can share my craving! I’m so evil.

Nintendo Switch Lamp

At first glance this is your typical LED desk lamp, with adjustable arm and pivoting light, nothing special. You park it by the couch or bed, and it blends into the scenery. But upon closer inspection this lamp becomes a handy device for for Switch gamers.

Ghostbusters Wall Hooks

Recently I’ve been thinking about doing an interior for the Ghostbusters tiny house that I posted a few weeks ago, and one of my first thoughts was to make some coat hooks for the entrance. It then sprang into my head to use ghost traps, and they were amusing enough to warrant their own post so I’m sharing it here.

They not only serve as coat hooks, but as storage for your keys and wallet. There’s a small drawer behind the trap doors:

This is sort of thing I would force kids to make in shop class, instead of napkin holders and bird houses. I would then give them failing grades, confiscate their work, and sell the wares on eBay.
