Sneakers Blu-Ray Case

Sneakers Answering Machine Blu-Ray by Dave Delisle

Sneakers is one of my all-time favorite films, simply for the fact that it’s just a fun film through and through. It’s too bad it hasn’t become a franchise, but then again I’ve seen the Ocean’s Eleven sequels and maybe it’s for the best.

Dexter Blu-Ray Case

Dexter Blu-Ray Case design by Dave Delisle

Really straightforward design: a blu-ray case based on Dexter’s blood slides box, where the discs are the drops of blood and the clear jewel cases are the slides. This would be about the size of a shoebox.

UPDATES: I originally posted this with several images, but I opted to redo this post (April 12/2014) with a brand-new solitary image and a much shorter write-up. At the time I originally posted this (exactly 3 years ago!) the show was only 5 years old, which is why I left so much space in the box.

Also in the fall of 2013 Showcase released their own box set that had a similar approach:

I think it looks really good, despite the smaller cases. Might look even better without the red liners in each case. Had my enthusiasm for the show not plummeted in the later seasons I would’ve bought this for sure.

Borg Wireless Charging Pad

Wireless charging pads emerged onto the scene a few years ago, and they are a brilliant innovation. Merely place your compatible gadget on top the pad/mat, and it will recharge through osmosis (actually with electro-magnetic induction to be precise). No wires needed, except for the one used to plug the mat in of course.

The simple interface of these recharging mats reminded me of the famous Star Trek villains the Borg and their ‘recharging stations’. So making a borg-themed charger for your portable device seems like a sensible idea if you really think about it.

Lord of the Rings Floor Lamp

Gandalf LOTR tall lamp design by Dave Delisle

Here is a floor lamp design based on the staff used by Gandalf. He often used it to emit light, so it felt appropriate for a lamp.

The staff was wielded by Gandalf the White. The one used by Gandalf the Grey looked a bit rough, more like a twig. The above design has a nice ivory look.

Ghostbusters PKE Meter Wireless Router

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.
