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.

Optimus Prime Washer And Dryer

Optimus Prime washer and dryer by Dave's Geeky Ideas

Saw a bright red washer and dryer set recently, and this idea was born. I’m in a good mood and it’s Friday so I’ll share it: In a cruel twist of fate, Optimus Prime has been recruited to clean clothes, ’til all laundry is done! 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

A Budget Nintendo Switch For Couch Gamers

Nintendo Switch by Dave Delisle

The Nintendo Switch was unveiled today, and it’s an impressive console that captures the best of both worlds: console and handheld gaming. There’s a lot to like here, I personally think the controller configurations have a lot of potential. Read the rest of this entry

My Dream Loot Crate

Dave Delisle 80's Loot Crate

The folks at Loot Crate invited me to put together a “Dream Crate” of my own design, and being a fan of their geeky subscription service I couldn’t resist! After much deliberation I settled on a theme: the 80’s. Read the rest of this entry

Batman Alarm Clock

How about THE CITY NEEDS YOU as motivation for waking up? I present a Batman themed alarm clock, which features the iconic red phone on top of a Batcave-inspired display straight from the sixties. Read the rest of this entry

Q*Bert Desk Organizer

Geeky Desk organizer by Dave Delisle

I recently came to the realization that my desk organizer is very boringsauce (pictured on the right here), so I started to brainstorm a fun alternative and came up with this Q*Bert design.

The block levels found in the old arcade game would be perfect for storage. I went with a 3-tier design for the mock-up above, so ideally a real organizer would also be available in 4 and 5 tier flavors for those who need a lot of storage.

As for Q*bert himself, he could be a flash drive, pencil sharpener (too weird?), stress toy, stapler, or whatever. As long as he’s included in some form, obviously.

This desk organizer is also a great place to affix Post-it notes (stored in the bottom middle there), because they’d blend in with the block shapes. I currently have post-its all over my computer monitor (I’m a disorganized weirdo), so I’d love to get one of these Q*Bert organizers for that reason alone.
