500 Posts And A Few Surprises

A bit of a personal milestone as this post is my 500th for this blog! That’s at least 500 ideas foisted onto the world (and I do mean foisted). This blog started in 2010, and yes there have been ups and downs along the way but I hope to keep doing this for the foreseeable future.

Jurassic Park Travel Kit

This travel kit enables you to smuggle all your grooming needs from one destination to the next. Customs can even check it! This is an empty shaving cream container that screws onto a base that holds travel-sized hygiene products.

Sneaker Basketball Arcade Machine

This basketball arcade cabinet is styled after a shoe, the Air Jordan 5, because of its mesh sides. This could also be purposed into a desktop toy as well.

Forgive the presentation, the net would actually be lower and there would be a scoreboard above the net, but it was tough to keep everything in frame. There would also be a protective net between the basket and the shooter.

This would go nicely with the other rec room designs I’ve posted here.

Zelda Nintendo Switch Stand

This clear plastic stand makes it appear as though the system is floating above Link, almost like he just acquired this item. You can hear that music right now, huh?

The fancy part is the USB cable, which clamps onto the Switch. It features a Triforce that illuminates when plugged in. When not in use, Link holds the USB cable.

Instrument Panel Car Stereo Deck

Whether it’s factory or aftermarket car stereos, I don’t think anyone has attempted to create a stereo that looks like a car’s instrument panel (the gauges behind the steering wheel). I could be wrong, if I am let me know in the comments.

Bubble Hockey Snow Globe

Now that the NHL has a few outdoor games every season, this trinket makes sense. The stand even makes it easier to shake! Sadly you can’t play with it.

Reminds me of that Pocket Rod Hockey toy that came out a few decades ago, which is playable. Not sure how good a game can be between two people, but I want one.
