Deadpool Skee-Ball Machine

Deadpool Skee-Ball by Dave Delisle

As part of my continuing quest to ruin all things found in a rec room (see Foosball Table, Arcade Cabinet, and Table Hockey designs), I turned my attention to the Skee-Ball machine. I went with a Deadpool theme, that’s pretty much all there is to say. Ticket dispenser and novelty prizes are not included.

The Fifth Element Wireless Router

The Fifth Element Wireless Router by Dave Delisle

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.

Star Trek Power Bank

Here is a power bank for Trekkies! It is based on the thingy from Star Trek IV, where Pavel Chekov does the sci-fi equivalent of siphoning gas. I wanted this to be comparable in size to existing power banks, while at the same time be a life-size prop for cosplay, so I made the handle detachable.

Star Trek Shuttlecraft Tent

Spring is here, so I thought it would be fun to make a geeky tent design that would be perfect for all of your away missions: I present a tent design based on the shuttlecraft from Star Trek. It’s not such a far-fetched idea; Star Trek V began with Kirk, Spock, and McCoy camping in the great outdoors.

Iron Man Garage Set

Iron Man DUM-E Garage Set by Dave's Geeky Ideas

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.

DUM-E is made up of a shop-vac, pressure washer, mechanic’s creeper, and leaf blower. The latter three all attach to the main vacuum body, and can be removed as needed.

THOR Hammer Tool Kit

When it comes to tools there isn’t much in the way of geeky-themed hardware or accessories. Hoping to address this oversight, I present a THOR Hammer tool kit, for those times when you need to swing a hammer. This compact tool box features several tools and a socket set, for those minor jobs around the house that call for a superhero.

When not being carried around for Asgardian cosplay, this hammer opens up to reveal all the tools stored inside. The handle is shared with an actual hammer, which is fastened into a removable tray. Beneath the tray is a reservoir for loose tools and nuts/bolts.
