Dark Knight Trilogy Blu-Ray Case

Dark Knight Trilogy Tumbler box set design by Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas

Here is blu-ray case design for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. Three CD-sized jewel cases are enclosed inside the Tumbler, which opens in similar fashion to the real-life Batmobile. This case would be on the larger side, about 12 inches long and 5 inches tall.

Calvin and Hobbes Papercraft: Transmogrifier Diorama

Calvin and Hobbes Papercraft

I’m trying to better my papercraft skills, so I thought I’d start simple by building the Weighted Companion Cube from Portal. Even that was too difficult! Why not something as simple as a cardboard box?      *light-bulb goes off*

Star Trek Enterprise Blu-Ray Case

Here I was thinking I was so clever about this Star Trek blu-ray case design, but then it turned out it was already made as an actual product (see below). Not sure how I arrived at something so similar. Usually I do some checking to see if it exists or not, and the official product didn’t show up on my radar.

R2-D2 Assistant

R2D2 USB Desk Toy

This is an open-ended idea, so bear with me. Basically it’s an R2-D2 figure on a platform interacting with one of those revolving gears (as he often does). There would be 2 motors, one to revolve R2’s head and one to revolve the gear. This toy would feature lights and sounds.

As for its function this gadget could be: a bookend, a USB hub, a recharging dock for your phone, a wireless speaker, a desk lamp, and so on. The gist of the idea is that R2 appears to be “assisting” you by turning that gear.

Personally I’d love to have him placed against the wall on my desk (like the picture above), connected to my computer via USB. He’d then react to me opening programs or writing files, stuff like that.

There are many possibilities for this gadget! I have a feeling that we’ll see something like this one day, as there seems to be a new electronic R2-D2 toy coming out every week.

Ecto Containment Unit USB Hub

This is an all-in-one gadget design that is loosely-based on the Ecto Containment Unit from Ghostbusters. It’s a case for an external hard drive, USB hub, and a card reader. For fun I’d like to see it come with a USB Flash drive that looks just like a ghost trap (more on that here). The ghost trap would have it’s own dedicated port, like the one seen above.
