Originally I planned to embed the “This Is Fine” dog in a fireplace screen, but then I felt it would be better if he appeared amidst the fire itself, so I placed him atop a fireplace grate (the thing that cradles logs). Read the rest of this entry
Saw a bright red washer and dryer set recently, and this idea was born. I’m in a good mood and it’s Friday so I’ll share it: In a cruel twist of fate, Optimus Prime has been recruited to clean clothes, ’til all laundry is done! Read the rest of this entry
After I posted that THOR Hammer Tool Box a few months ago my first thought was, Iron Man is the handy one, he should get a cool tool set too. Tony Stark’s love of cars inspired me to create something specifically for garage-dwelling gearheads: a DUM-E robot comprised of things found in your typical garage.
Seeing as the Ecto Containment Unit is a wall-mounted hub where many wires originate, I figured it would be a fun way to conceal electrical panels found in households (more so if the panel is in the basement). Your circuit breakers would now reside in a ghost prison.
Instead of creating an electrical panel shaped like the Ecto Containment Unit, I felt a separate cover that sits atop an existing electrical panel would be easier and cheaper to install. The design is modular so it can safely bypass all the wiring. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve seen quite a few geeky mini fridges lately, from Han Solo in Carbonite to Iron Man. While it’s great that there are so many options for geeks to choose from, none of them have grabbed me personally. So if it were up to me, I’d make a design based on the TMNT Party Wagon.
The box shape is optimal for storage, and that iconic door (used for ramming Foot ninjas) swings open like a fridge door, so it’s a perfect fit.
The one shown here is big enough for a 12-pack of soda and a sandwich. However if the wheels were entirely on the outside of cabin there’d be even more room for food. You could even upscale this van for a much larger fridge, with storage in the door too. This could also be down-scaled to fit 4-6 sodas so it doesn’t take up too much room on your desk.
Thought I’d design a fun fridge that looks and works like a vending machine. This would be ideal for any soda or beer company theme (Coke, Nuka-Cola, Duff Beer), but for this post I figured Futurama’s Slurm would be best. Read the rest of this entry
