Soundwave PC case mod by Dave Delisle

Those aren’t cassette spindles, they are PC case fans which help keep your expensive hardware cool. It was that idea that launched my latest design: a PC tower case based on the infamous Decepticon, Soundwave. Consoles inferior, PC superior, the monotone robot would say.

TMNT Drink Coasters

TMNT Drink Coaster by Dave Delisle

Inspired by the Smash Bros. coaster design I posted a few years ago, I felt a similar design could be done for TMNT. This time, the coasters are sewer covers and pizzas. In addition, the storage box has a fun dispenser feature for dealing out coasters. Read the rest of this entry

I was recently looking over some old Coleco table hockey players, and had an idea: die-cut stickers (meaning no white backdrop) on clear plastic blades. This approach would not only look good for those Coleco players, but for pixelated players too. Read the rest of this entry

Operation Board Game Power Bank

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.

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
