Back To The Future Lamp

doc brown helmet bttf lamp design by Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas 2010

Simply put this ceiling lamp looks like the helmet worn by Doc Brown the first Back to the Future. It is tethered by that “suction cup” that the Doc affixed to Marty McFly’s head.

Besides the main bulb, there would be LED lights throughout this light fixture, making it look like a fancypants chandelier.

Floating PC Desk


This was inspired by DIY Creators’ Floating Desk, I just went with a Floppy Disk look. The disk holes make for really good grommets! This is a generic design, I think it would look cooler if it had a Commodore 64 or Apple II theme.

You could probably build a PC into the back panel if you wanted, or at the very least incorporate a power strip into it, for tidier cable management.

Flat Component Electronics To Match Flat TV’s

Flat Electronics To Match TV

Flatscreen TV’s are an amazing space-saver. So why don’t other electronics follow suit? With the same flat orientation of the TV applied to other electronics (like DVD players, stereos, and game systems), you could have an entertainment unit as deep as 6 inches, or about the width of a DVD case.

Sure you might have to fasten things down to keep everything firmly in place, but it’s a small price to pay to gain additional room. The reclaimed real estate would be beneficial to those living in a smaller space.

As for the component electronics themselves, a few design changes would be needed, like the DVD slot (see above). and a way to conceal the wires (something like this flat PS4 concept).
