Back To The Future Bluetooth Speaker

This is a smaller Bluetooth Speaker that features a digital display concealed in the wood finish (like these alarm clocks), and a remote that looks like the component rack next to the speaker from the film.

The Versatile Bob-omb

Bob-omb by davesgeekyideas

This might give you some disturbing insight to my mind, but today I was installing the lights on my bike, I thought to myself: “You know what would be cool, is if they made blinking tail lights in the guise of a Bob-omb” Even just a flat disc-shaped version would be great. 

Star Trek Clock

Star Trek clock design by Dave Delisle

This would be a (flat) wall clock or a desk clock. I honestly wouldn’t know how to make this functional besides being a full LCD display. It’s those arrow indicators that might prove to be problematic in a mechanical clock, especially the minute arrow.

This is based on the medical display that sat over patients in the original Star Trek show.

Speak & Spell iPad Case

Speak and Spell iPad case by Dave Delisle

This one is pretty straightforward, an iPad case based on the Speak & Spell educational toy from the 80’s (you whippersnappers might have seen it in the film E.T.). Obviously those from the late 70’s and early 80’s would appreciate the novelty of this idea more.

I know it’s a kids toy, but as I’ve often stated I like things that are inherently nostalgic. I believe only a few geeks would have scruples about being seen with such a childish case.

I suppose the only downside is the ironic hipster vibe this design wields. It’s retro, filled with social commentary about modern electronic devices, and is intended for an Apple product. I should just delete this post. *Sigh!* I’ll leave it be. You hipsters don’t linger around here too long, y’hear?

The odds of this happening are super-slim. Speak & Spell is owned by Texas Instruments, not exactly a competitor of Apple but no ally either.

Sorry to pimp other posts, but you might dig this Crayola 3DS case.
