ColecoVision Security Door Handle

Here is a security keypad and door handle combo that resembles a ColecoVision controller. This would make a great theft deterrent, as thieves are afraid of retro gamers.

The security keypad would be illuminated as well. I could see this emitting video game sound effects when keys are pressed for that added flair.

Sandbox Desk

A sandbox desk is the combination of an ultra-wide top drawer with a glass top, which creates a unique display space. For the above example I went with a train set, but you can throw anything in there you can imagine. Or just be boring and store office stationary.

Personally I would house a table hockey set. I could see others displaying their Warhammer 40K collection, or a RISK board game. What would you place inside?

Eternal Sunshine Fridge Magnet

Having Joel and Clementine from the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind on the front of your fridge would be the coolest magnet ever. Especially if you used them to hold notes for shopping lists and other helpful reminders – stuff you want to remember. Ha.

These are small figurines with magnets on the back. Ideally they would be two separate characters, so you can detach them from each other if you’re feeling cruel.

You could probably get Rude & Reckless to make you a set.

Comic Book Rack Blu-Ray Display

Now that superhero movies are becoming a regular fixture, I thought it would be fun to create a DVD rack that looked like a comic book display. I recall seeing racks like this in grocery stores and pharmacies, usually covered in Archie and Richie Rich titles.

The top of the rack would feature a backlit sign, which could double as a lamp in your living space.
