Optimus Prime Container House

I’m breaking my promise of no more tiny house designs, but this is a container house, which is slightly different. This design is based on a 20-foot container, which is on the smaller side, but you could go life-size with a 40-footer and a real truck if you wanted.

Motorized Self-Driving Cars For LEGO

I was watching a recent video from YouTuber JANGBRICKS, where he was trying to devise a way to get his LEGO cars to move about his LEGO city (5:36 mark), and I think there is a pretty cool solution to his problem but it would require a lot of help from a company called Anki.

Nintendo R.O.B. Raspberry Pi Case

In the past few years Kintaro and RetroFlag have released a bunch of Nintendo-inspired cases for the Raspberry Pi 3, and they are all pretty darn impressive (personally I’m holding out for a Sega Genesis version). Thought I would design a case for the tiny Raspberry Pi Zero based on the R.O.B. toy.

Apple Siri Screen

Amazon recently released the Echo Show, an Alexa assistant with a built-in screen that displays information on demand. If Apple were to release a similar product, they can do no worse than making it look like an 80’s Macintosh computer. Nostalgia is all the rage these days, see the NES Classic or C64 Mini.

Transformers Portable Record Player

I mentioned this design in the previous post, but I decided to actually make it a thing. I said Blaster would be better as a portable record player because his tape deck enclosure was mostly covered, save for a small window. Whereas Soundwave’s glass cover was more fitting of a stationary record player.

Transformers Record Player

Transformers: The Movie Soundtrack was released on Vinyl a few years ago, making it the greatest album to ever be released in this format (sorry The Wall and Rumours, your days are over). It just needs a matching record player for a vastly superior listening experience.

So I bring you this Soundwave design. It is based on several existing record players that are currently on the market, so this design is merely a paint job and some stickers away from happening. I’d tackle this myself but I don’t collect records.

I thought about placing a Laserbeak atop the needle, but the added weight might ruin some records. This design could be applied to Autobot Blaster, but he would be better suited for a portable record player.
