I currently own a Nvidia GTX 960 card and I’m in the market for a new graphics card*. In a perfect world I could just add 4GB of RAM and some quieter fans to my existing card, which would set me up for a few more years, but this just isn’t possible.

Went with Street Fighter II for this globe design because the characters look good wrapped around the stand, however this idea could be applied to any geeky property that has its own world map: The Hobbit, World of WarCraft, The Last Airbender, Elder Scrolls, A Song Of Ice And Fire, and so on.

This is Doug the talking dog from Pixar’s UP. The speaker is the nose, the controls and indicator light are on his collar. He could say his more popular phrases (I LOVE YOU or SQUIRREL) on demand. This could also be an Alexa device if Amazon ever decides to make themed gadgets.

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.
