I really like those resin coffee tables with the blue water effect, they’re very striking. Thought it would be cool to make a world map version, but given how complicated it would be to make such a thing, I started thinking about a simple way to execute the idea: blue glass.

I’m surprised no one has done this yet, at least from what I could find online. So I thought I’d post a concept or two here.

Disc Changer For Game Consoles

I’m sure this is something a lot of gamers have wanted over the years: a disc changer for their game console. I haven’t given it much thought since multi-disc games like Final Fantasy VII were released long ago. Such a device would’ve been a pricey add-on years ago, but it should be a bargain now, right?

Retro Game HDMI Splitter

Hyperkin has announced a new N64 clone console, which will include HDMI like all of their other recent console releases. It reminded me of something I wanted 20 years ago, a device that would split up the game into 4 separate displays. Ideal for the many 4-player splitscreen games that graced the N64 and other consoles of the era.

Unified Super Mario NES Covers

This was just a personal pet project to make all three Super Mario games for the NES look uniform in appearance, mainly in the style of Super Mario 3. The lower wordmark logos were for the sides of the box (and the top of the cartridge label too). Nothing against the first two games’ box art, which are iconic, this was just for fun.

The goal was to print these for some plastic clamshell boxes (like these ones I have) for display on my shelf, but I gave these games away to my nephews last year. Might still do this if I ever get the games again.

This can also be done with Pikachu and his tail, however I went with Donkey Kong because I dig his tie. This is a protective case with a picture frame stand and game storage. Do read on!

Space Cadet Pinball Handheld Device

This is handheld gaming device in the same vein as that Oregon Trail handheld that came out a few years ago. It features a 16:9 LCD screen, making this device the size of a small smartphone. It is held like a Game Boy, featuring 2 buttons on the front to control the paddles, and an analog nub in the middle to control the pinball shooter/plunger.
