Ghostbusters External GPU Case Design

NVIDIA Ghostbusters Trap External GPU Case Design by Dave Delisle

External GPU cases have been around for a few years. You take a desktop graphics card, stuff it into one of these cases, then plug it into a laptop for a performance boost in graphics. Ideal for turning a sluggish laptop into a gaming laptop.

One design idea for such a case is the Ghostbusters ghost trap. Not only would it be life-size, but it could store 2 graphics cards (I don’t think external GPU cases can juggle multiple cards just yet). Also NVIDIA cards have LED logos on the side, so they can emit a ghost green light as well, perfect for a ghost trap.

New York Movie Theater

Sometimes I will post a dud here (okay most of the time I do). When a post falls flat and doesn’t draw any clicks I will nuke it from orbit. I made and posted this NYC-themed movie theater design in the summer of 2016, thought I’d re-post it now because I do like it, warts and all.

Six years ago a very cool Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 was released. It featured a C3PO controller and R2D2 console that made beeping sounds just like the astromech droid. The release of this special edition console was due to the pack-in game: Kinect Star Wars.

Spaceballs The Coffee Maker

I shrunk down a vending machine-sized coffee dispenser to the size of a regular coffee maker, all so geeks could drink coffee in style. It features an LCD screen that shows the brewing in progress, as well as the time and date.

Marvel Studios Blu-Ray Player

RGB lighting is all the rage these days, so I applied these lights to your everyday Blu-Ray player. In this case it is a Marvel-themed player that is programmed to recognize and react to all Marvel movies.

Back to the Future Wireless Charger And Bluetooth Speaker

Back to the Future hoverboard by Dave Delisle

Seeing as some wireless charging pads look like skateboards already, why not enlist the most famous skateboard of all to be a wireless charger, the hoverboard from Back to the Future. Just lay a phone and top of the board and you’ll have enough power to traverse over water. Maybe.
