I know my “change the world” posts aren’t all that popular but I hope this design turns a few heads. I’ve been thinking about this one for over a year, since four black bears were destroyed in my town for being habituated (they were relying on people’s garbage as a food source). That’s an extreme example, I also want be like Cyril Sneer and thwart those evil Raccoons.

Star Trek Streaming Remote

There are a few Star Trek remotes you can buy for your TV, but if it were up to me I’d make one inspired by the Cricket Phaser from TNG. On the show the characters wield and point the thing like a TV remote, plus it is very small and has a good button layout. Would be ideal for a Roku or Fire TV setup.

Porch Pirates are evil people who steal unattended packages from your front door. I believe I have devised a way to thwart them. Basically this system turns the front door into a mailbox of sorts. See it in action after the jump.

Super Mario 64 TV Stand

Remember those maps that teachers would pull down to cover the chalkboard in class? Exact same deal here. This idea was born because I hate dusting my TV and game consoles, and wanted a fun way to conceal everything when not in use.

Accessible Steering Controller

Logitech started selling some accessories for the excellent Xbox Adaptive Controller, so I thought I’d pitch this controller accessory. It could potentially allow gamers to drive a car with a single finger.
