I haven’t done a Jurassic Park design in a long time, so how about this…boring desk? I’ll clear up the confusion shortly, but first let me start off by saying that I was inspired by this neat Millennium Falcon Theater. In that setup a tablet device is elevated, allowing users to lie underneath it and watch movies.

Here is a Star Trek beer dispenser design for your basement bar! Besides the obvious tap handles, the frame is based on the architecture of the Ten Forward bar seen on Star Trek: TNG. The frame is two open windows flanked by the pillars and support beams.

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
