Hostile Traffic Lanes

Hostile traffic lane speed bumps highway merging exiting diagram 2019 dave delisle davesgeekyideas

Imagine a lane of highway that is laced with bumps for several miles. It hates you and your car, and doesn’t want you driving on it at all. If it could talk, it would yell at you to move to the next lane over. WHY on earth would I share this idea? Because it might improve traffic flow on congested highways, at least that’s my theory.

Canadian Army Knife USB Keychain

That’s right, Canadian Army Knife, because what have the Swiss ever done? Nationality aside, this is something I would’ve liked a month ago when I was traveling: an all-in-one USB thingy so I’d have less junk to deal with.

Overflow Train Cars

Vancouver has one of the best mass transit systems in the world, but I do not miss the crowded trains that happen during peak times. I propose special ‘Overflow’ train cars that sit at the front and back of a train, increasing passenger capacity. This creates a longer train that extends beyond the length of existing platforms.

Cobra HISS Tank Tiny House

This is the last Tiny House design, I promise. I realized that people with the means to build an elaborate geeky-themed tiny house probably wouldn’t seek out this frugal way of life to begin with. So I’ll close out the series with this Cobra H.I.S.S. Tank design.

Inception Travel Alarm Clock

When they opened up the suitcase that contained the “Dream Sharing Device” in Inception, the upper section reminded me of a clock face, so I threw this alarm clock design together.

It has a compact clamshell case based on the suitcase, typical of many travel alarm clocks. It could beep or buzz people awake, perhaps even play the kick song as well.

Nintendo Classic Mini Carrying Case

Carrying cases are trendy again, thanks to the surging popularity of the NES and SNES Classic Mini consoles. Thought I would design a case that features a built-in monitor, a handy feature for gamers who want a compact gaming rig, or a means to game on the go. This case is about the size of a large lunchbox, and was inspired by portable record players.

It transforms from a suitcase into a retro TV, complete with a wheeled cart (the wheels are also functional in suitcase mode). The TV is a USB-powered portable LCD monitor. The flaps on the sides of the case clamp everything down in both suitcase and TV mode.

The transformation adds a great deal of versatility; theoretically you could always use this case, either as an entertainment center or means of transporting the game system. You never really have to remove the console.

There is a drawer beneath the system to store controllers and accessories, perhaps a power supply as well for mobile gaming.

Optimus Prime Washer And Dryer

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!
