iTunes Bluetooth Speaker

Apple is currently in the middle of killing iTunes, thought I’d commemorate this grim occasion by putting together a Bluetooth speaker design. I felt reincarnating iTunes in the form of a jukebox would be appropriate.

Toy Chest That Transforms Into A Playset

Toy Chest Transforms Into Playset Storage Dollhouse Trunk Chest 2019 dave delisle davesgeekyideas dave's geeky ideas

I attempted this design a year or so ago, but when I finished it the thing looked like a deathtrap so I shelved it, and opted to post this instead. This time I took child safety into consideration (for once) and made a super-simple toy chest that transforms into a playset.

Microsoft Clippy Floating Pen

Microsoft is a relatively unknown company, and they need lots of help raising brand awareness. So I designed this promotional item to help get the word out! This is one of those ‘floating pens’ which contain a sliding image that moves up and down the pen. See it in action after the jump.

Space Cadet Pinball Handheld Device

This is handheld gaming device in the same vein as that Oregon Trail handheld that came out a few years ago. It features a 16:9 LCD screen, making this device the size of a small smartphone. It is held like a Game Boy, featuring 2 buttons on the front to control the paddles, and an analog nub in the middle to control the pinball shooter/plunger.

Game Boy Printer Business Card Holder

The Game Boy Printer is quite the oddity in the history of video games, but you gotta hand it to Nintendo for trying something new. Thought I’d revive the device as a business card holder, because geeks gotta network too.

The button, it does nothing. A push magnet keeps this closed (like those found on kitchen cabinets), just press on the top cover to release and open. There is a sliding lock to keep this fastened.

I wanted this to dispense cards where the paper came out of the GB printer, but that would’ve made this too big. I’m pretty sure this would be almost the same size as the original printer for that replica vibe.

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.
