SEGA will be offering a new version of the Genesis Flashback later this year, their answer to the wildly popular NES/SNES Classic editions offered by Nintendo. It features HDMI output and 2 wireless controllers, so what’s not to love? Well it’s made by AtGames, so I strongly advise folks to wait for reviews before buying. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve been wanting to design a case for the Raspberry Pi for years now, so I’m happy to share this concept with you today. This is cheating a bit, as it based on an existing computer, the ill-fated Hot Wheels PC from the 90’s. Those were crazy times, entire desktop PCs marketed towards spoiled brats.

This isn’t a geeky design at first glance however this Roku concept is inspired by Transformers, so it’s more than meets the eye one could say. No, it doesn’t transform, but do read on. Read the rest of this entry
I am very intrigued by the potential of Amazon’s line of personal assistants (Alexa and Echo), my hope is that one day we get HAL 9000 and GLaDOS versions of the device. Thought I would take a stab at the latter, but GLaDOS’ robotic body doesn’t fit so I enlisted the Companion Cube and the incinerator. This would still feature GLaDOS’ voice, in an ideal world.

A wireless signal is as crucial as water or air for most geeks, so it seems fitting that this wireless router design styles itself as The Fifth Element, savior of high bandwidth speeds. If you’ve seen the film, this gadget should be pretty self-explanatory, if you haven’t seen the film you should remedy that immediately.
Basically a 4-antennae wireless router with LED lights perched atop each antennae. The antennae do swivel at the base, if needed. Seeing as most routers are on 24/7, the antennae lights should be turned on by-demand for a brief light show; or perhaps they only illuminate when you’re downloading or uploading data.
In my opinion the “meditation clock” from Witcher 3 would be a neat clock for everyday use, however its 24-hour single hand display would be confusing, so I added a digital clock. The sun/moon displays would illuminate when the hand nears their location.
I’d like to do similar designs for Stardew Valley and other video games that feature an in-game clock display. Maybe one day down the road.
I wonder if anyone has made a Witcher-themed display for Apple Watch or other smart watches? Google tells me not yet.
