Optimus Prime Container House

I’m breaking my promise of no more tiny house designs, but this is a container house, which is slightly different. This design is based on a 20-foot container, which is on the smaller side, but you could go life-size with a 40-footer and a real truck if you wanted.

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?

HAL 9000 Smart Thermostat

Same deal as a Nest thermostat, with a silver dial encompassing a screen, but given a HAL 9000 makeover. This could also be given personal assistant (Alexa, Siri) abilities, thanks to the speaker placement. The speaker and screen also lend themselves to intercom and security cam functionality.

It would be a neat device to have, but speaking as a Dave I’m a little hesitant about wanting one.

Spinal Tap USB Volume Knob

Spinal Tap USB Volume Knob goes to 11 2019 dave delisle davesgeekyideas dave's geeky ideas

I had no idea USB Volume Knobs were a thing until today! I’m grabbing one because I keep pushing my PC speaker away from me when I adjust the volume. Even better, this idea was born.

The Spinal Tap wordmark replaces the Marshall logo seen on the amplifier. I honestly believe Thinkgeek or any company could make these without the Spinal Tap or Marshall logo, as long as there is an 11 there for the gag. There’s no pointer on the dial, which spins infinitely, so the numbers are purely for decoration.

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.

Hostile Traffic Lanes

Imagine a lane of highway that is laced with bumps for several miles. It hates you and your car, and doesn’t want you driving on it at all. If it could talk, it would yell at you to move to the next lane over. WHY on earth would I share this idea? Because it might improve traffic flow on congested highways, at least that’s my theory.
