Star Trek Streaming Remote

There are a few Star Trek remotes you can buy for your TV, but if it were up to me I’d make one inspired by the Cricket Phaser from TNG. On the show the characters wield and point the thing like a TV remote, plus it is very small and has a good button layout. Would be ideal for a Roku or Fire TV setup.

TV Show Pitch: Obi-Wan Kenobi

There has been a lot of hoopla this past week regarding the delay of the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show. The rumor for the delay: the show’s premise was too similar to The Mandalorian, with the title character protecting a young Luke Skywalker throughout the series.

Not sure how valid that rumor is, but it is far from what I’ve been imagining these past few months, which I will share with you now: seeing as the Mandalorian is a Western, I honestly thought Obi-Wan was going to be a Detective Show (be it Noir or Hardboiled).

Hear me out! The most interesting part of Attack of the Clones was Obi-Wan being a detective, chasing down clues and unraveling a mystery. Not saying he’d pursue that line of work full-time, but living near both Mos Eisley and Jabba’s Palace, it would be easy to become embroiled in a sinister plot full of criminals and intrigue.

Planet Express Electric Scooter

This Futurama-themed electric scooter reminds me of Pee-Wee Herman’s bicycle, a testament to all that is colorful, retro, and zany. It screams fun to me, but I can see this being hideous to many other people.

Jurassic Park Entertainment Center

This design started out as a wardrobe, which was really boring. Then I saw some entertainment centers with sliding barn doors and thought they were cool so I ran with that instead. The barn doors are my personal preference, they may not be for everyone.

Coffee Table For Gadget Lovers

All my devices, cables, and game controllers are plaguing me like Tribbles, so I came up with this simple design: a coffee table with an easel, plus storage and USB charging. Perfect for couch-bound geeks everywhere.

The easel faces the couch, and you can park your phones, tablets, and remotes on it. Now you can always see who is calling, or watch your tablet with ease.

A large drawer opens up to reveal storage for game controllers and cables, or whatever you want to toss inside. Those things called “books” could be stored in here, if you’d like.
