I was recently looking over some old Coleco table hockey players, and had an idea: die-cut stickers (meaning no white backdrop) on clear plastic blades. This approach would not only look good for those Coleco players, but for pixelated players too.
This actually started out as a First-Aid kit design, but then I saw those wheels on Baymax’s charging station in the film and decided to make this a suitcase instead. Probably for the better, suitcases are more likely to be seen and used than your typical household First-Aid kit.
Here’s a pair of smartphone dock designs that pay homage to a time when we plugged cartridges into other cartridges to play games. Back in the early 90’s such adapter cartridges like Sonic & Knuckles, Super Game Boy, and Game Genies were pretty cool, you kids will have to take my word for it.
Haven’t seen the new Fantastic Four film yet, but from what I’ve gathered it wasn’t well-received at all. Many fans have started to ponder the future direction of the franchise, myself included. Figured I’d share some of those thoughts.
If you’re Canadian who is 22 and older, you probably want one of these. As you know I am straight-up gangsta, and even I would want one.
All you would need is a red “construction worker” lunch box, then decorate it (via paint or stickers) with a bunch of pretty flowers.
So not a gadget exactly. I am trying not to replicate the type of gadget right now, opting to showcase a variety of products. In the future, I will be showing ‘duplicates’ of ideas posted, meaning more alarm clocks, usb gadgets, and so forth.
Today’s item is a First-Aid kit in the guise of a video game ‘medkit’. This could either be hung on the wall in the bathroom or kitchen, serving as an emergency kit. Or it can simply be a small medicine cabinet to store all your hygiene wares by the bathroom sink. A small, compact version could be issued for use as a travel kit. Either way, you can treat yourself like you’ve been through war.
The example illustrated above is from Half Life 2. Many other games have their own unique health kits; such as Halo, Splinter Cell, Call of Duty, etc.
There might be some legal hurdles with this one…litigious people might see this as a toy inviting to toddlers, or completely overlooked in an emergency. That’s what disclaimers are for! Of all the ideas I have presented, this could very well be the cheapest – the equivalent of mass-producing lunch boxes or DVD tin cases. It’s just a fancy First-Aid box, after all.
