Planet Express Electric Scooter

This Futurama-themed electric scooter reminds me of Pee-Wee Herman’s bicycle, a testament to all that is colorful, retro, and zany. It screams fun to me, but I can see this being hideous to many other people.

Disc Changer For Game Consoles

I’m sure this is something a lot of gamers have wanted over the years: a disc changer for their game console. I haven’t given it much thought since multi-disc games like Final Fantasy VII were released long ago. Such a device would’ve been a pricey add-on years ago, but it should be a bargain now, right?

HAL 9000 Smart Thermostat

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.

Spinal Tap USB Volume Knob

Spinal Tap USB Volume Knob goes to 11 2019 dave delisle davesgeekyideas dave's geeky ideas

I had no idea USB Volume Knobs were a thing until today! I’m grabbing one because I keep pushing my PC speaker away from me when I adjust the volume. Even better, this idea was born.

The Spinal Tap wordmark replaces the Marshall logo seen on the amplifier. I honestly believe Thinkgeek or any company could make these without the Spinal Tap or Marshall logo, as long as there is an 11 there for the gag. There’s no pointer on the dial, which spins infinitely, so the numbers are purely for decoration.

Retro Game HDMI Splitter

Hyperkin has announced a new N64 clone console, which will include HDMI like all of their other recent console releases. It reminded me of something I wanted 20 years ago, a device that would split up the game into 4 separate displays. Ideal for the many 4-player splitscreen games that graced the N64 and other consoles of the era.

Canadian Army Knife USB Keychain

That’s right, Canadian Army Knife, because what have the Swiss ever done? Nationality aside, this is something I would’ve liked a month ago when I was traveling: an all-in-one USB thingy so I’d have less junk to deal with.
