The Ghostbusters’ PKE Meter would make for a very cool wireless router. The two “ears” would double as antennae, and the array of LED lights would display the current signal strength. Plus the screen would display helpful network information. The handle would need to be weighted down to ensure this stays upright.
I’ve always ALWAYS wanted a case that would open at the spine. This way I can grab the movie or video game disc, and just leave the case parked on the shelf with the rest of my library.
I think a static design would work, wherein the disc holder is just attached to the spine. However I went the extra distance and created a ramp and slider system, so the disc could roll towards you. It’s a bit more clearance from the case, and having this extension mechanic just exclaims “Here is your movie/video game, enjoy!”
This can co-exist with the existing jewel case system that opens like a book, should you need to get at the booklet, or prefer to get at the disc old-school style.
Not only is this handy for those who own many films/video games, but it really keeps things neat and organized.
I think this could be a system people would upgrade all their cases to in a wholesale fashion. As long as they recycle their old cases!
UPDATE: originally I had a fancier design where they discs would jack-knife out of the stairs but I grew to hate the idea. Discs shouldn’t be so hard to access. So I turned the truck into a napkin holder for normal blu-ray cases.
Several months ago I designed a ‘Star Trek View Screen‘ gadget that would accommodate any LCD monitor or TV. Then I recently thought this feature could be directly embedded into the LCD monitor itself. And voila.
