In Toy Story 2 there was a display case seen in the Buzz Lightyear aisle that would make for a neat arcade cabinet in my opinion. Unfortunately the illuminated moon and rocket would make this tough to produce for even the most-skilled custom arcade cabinet makers.
If I could spare no expense I would get this made, but only after I have a Last Starfighter cab in my possession.
The long-awaited followup to my Ouija Board coffee table and rug design, I present a mirror and dresser combo that has a Guillotine theme. Nothing disturbing about this at all, ha-ha. This can also be a table and mirror combination, for a more ‘raised platform’ appearance, and to allow it to be parked in a hallway.

This is a design I was thinking about submitting to LEGO IDEAS, but it’s just a few specialty parts, not a whole product so this wouldn’t be considered. These are parts for elevators that I would like to see included in LEGO City and LEGO Creator sets one day.

This Nintendo design was inspired by a power strip I bought recently. It looked like a plain white generic thing, but when I plugged it in it became this TRON-like device thanks to some translucent blue plastic throughout the sides. It only used the one LED light located under the switch, and I thought it was a neat way to expand the light’s usage.

In the past few years Kintaro and RetroFlag have released a bunch of Nintendo-inspired cases for the Raspberry Pi 3, and they are all pretty darn impressive (personally I’m holding out for a Sega Genesis version). Thought I would design a case for the tiny Raspberry Pi Zero based on the R.O.B. toy.

I’ve been meaning to do a Time Stone watch or clock for a few years now, but I couldn’t think of a way to capture the green time effects. A round smartwatch display could handle that, so I made this design. The Time Stone is a button that activates the display. The red strap represents Doctor Strange’s cape.

Do you like this quasi-futuristic remote I designed? It’s based on the device used by Dr. Evil to fire his employees. It’s intended to be a streaming remote, compatible with devices like the Roku or Chromecast. It enables users to fire up their preferred streaming service at the push of a button.
The one major change I made was the addition of a rotary joystick in the middle. It can be moved for navigating menus, pressed like a button, and rotated for volume control. This sort of input is common in cars with infotainment displays.
This remote sits on a coffee table, though it shouldn’t be too cumbersome to hold or place on your lap. It may need to be plugged into a PC or programmed from a smartphone app, much like a Logitech Harmony remote. It would come with numerous labels for all the streaming services, and it shouldn’t be too difficult to print your own if needed.
