As promised, Montreal’s Metro map rendered in Super Mario 3 style. I’d like to dub this map trend as “Mariotography” if I may.

Special thanks to Chris Erb from Spacing Montreal for the translation and layout assistance.

UPDATE: In light of the TTC finalizing the names for the new extension, I have given the map an overhaul. Apologies to those who have purchased this previously, I thought the original map was future-proof!

 

Duracell Thermos

Duracell Battery coppertop thermos coffee 2012 dave delisle davesgeekyideas dave's geeky ideas

I post lots of ideas, but once in a while I am shocked – shocked – that a particular item doesn’t already exist. Case in point: this thermos/beverage container fashioned after a Duracell coppertop. Considering our dependency on coffee as a source of energy, it makes perfect sense. It also helps that the design of the battery closely resembles your typical thermos.

The protruding contact on the top of the cup is spring-loaded, allowing the cup to sit flat on surfaces.

Here is a blueprint of the Tumbler seen in The Dark Knight, except I added wheels to complete the look. Additional Wayne logos and legalese were also added to the bottom of the print.

Car Dealership Idea: Hot Wheels Sign

Car Dealership SIgn 2011 Hot Wheels Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas

If I were to open a car dealership the first order of business would be a sign, one that is essentially a giant Hot Wheels package containing an actual car.

Not only would it serve as eye-catching signage, but it would also serve to highlight a particular car – much like dealerships do when they place a single car on a ramp or display stand to make it stand out from the lot.

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.
