Witcher Desk Clock

Witcher 3 clock face by Dave Delisle

In my opinion the “meditation clock” from Witcher 3 would be a neat clock for everyday use, however its 24-hour single hand display would be confusing, so I added a digital clock. The sun/moon displays would illuminate when the hand nears their location.

I’d like to do similar designs for Stardew Valley and other video games that feature an in-game clock display. Maybe one day down the road.

I wonder if anyone has made a Witcher-themed display for Apple Watch or other smart watches? Google tells me not yet.

Star Trek Power Bank

Star Trek Power Bank by Dave Delisle

Here is a power bank for Trekkies! It is based on the thingy from Star Trek IV, where Pavel Chekov does the sci-fi equivalent of siphoning gas. I wanted this to be comparable in size to existing power banks, while at the same time be a life-size prop for cosplay, so I made the handle detachable. Read the rest of this entry

Operation Board Game Power Bank

operation-board-game-power-bank-by-dave-delisle-davesgeekyideas-2017

Here is my spin on a power bank, one that looks like an old-school Operation board game. His nose is now an indicator light to show when a device is charging, and the surgery cavities are now cable ports. There are extra USB ports in the base.

I updated the character (who is known as Cavity Sam) to wear boxer shorts and have a more relaxed pose, which echos what Hasbro has done with their official game in the past dozen or so years. That dude looks too chill.

I’ll have a few more power bank designs posted in the coming days, stay tuned for those.

Baymax Suitcase

Baymax suitcase design by Dave Delisle

This actually started out as a First-Aid kit design, but then I saw those wheels on Baymax’s charging station in the film and decided to make this a suitcase instead. Probably for the better, suitcases are more likely to be seen and used than your typical household First-Aid kit. Read the rest of this entry

James Bond USB Car Charger

James Bond USB Car Charger by Dave Delisle

Here is a device design that is in the same vein as the Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger, but for fans of James Bond. A passenger eject button and toggle switches for weapons, what more does a car need? This is an expansion of the cigarette lighter cover I posted a few years ago. Read the rest of this entry

McDonald’s Halloween Safety Lights

McDonald's Safety Light Clip by Dave Delisle

Thought I’d offer a new spin on those classic McDonald’s Halloween pails: safety lights for Trick-or-Treaters. These tiny lights could be clipped to shoes, lanyards, wrist bands, or anywhere really. Read the rest of this entry

TRON Gaming Desk

Tron Gaming Desk by Dave Delisle

The Light Cycles are speakers, and the computer is built into the desk behind the illuminated TRON logo. But that’s not all! The main desk itself is a Recognizer vehicle. Read the rest of this entry
