Crumb-Buster Cereal Container

Crumb-buster cereal container tupperware design 2018 Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas Dave's Geeky Ideas

I’m a little embarrassed to post this, because it has that “seen on TV gizmo” vibe, so apologies in advance. This is my take on cereal Tupperware containers, and it combats those small crumbly bits that taint the last bowl of Cheerios.

Mortal Kombat Toaster

Mortal Kombat Toaster Toasty design by Dave Delisle 2019 davesgeekyideas

If Darth Vader can get a toaster, I don’t see why Scorpion from Mortal Kombat can’t get the same treatment. It’s a little more appropriate here, owing to the famous Toasty joke the video games are known for.

The face mask operates the toast lever. I wanted something that looked like a retro/vintage toaster for this design, so it doesn’t look out of place on the kitchen counter when not in use.

It could also have eyes that light red from the heating elements (or LEDs), but that might be a bit too dramatic for making toast. I’m still debating whether or not I should add that.

Other design notes: the toast would be emblazoned with the Mortal Kombat logo. I don’t see why this design couldn’t be used for other characters like Sub-Zero, Reptile, and Smoke as well. Went with a skull because I wanted more chrome to match other kitchen appliances. I can see many other brands using this approach, like Transformers, but the Toasty joke clinches this design in my opinion.

Arrested Development Drink Coaster Set

You may not get Hop-Ons, but you’ll get plenty of guests with hop-filled beverages who will threaten the surfaces of your furniture. This set features a stack of coasters piled onto the back of the Bluth Stair Car.

Arrested Development season 5 debuts in a few weeks! Always nice to get a surprise like that on short notice. I hope they recapture the magic of seasons 1-3, season 4 was just okay (though still better than many other comedies nowadays).

Vending Machine Lunch Box

Here’s a normal tin lunch box, with a print of two vending machines on the cover. I did include a “divider” on the front to help make it look like 2 separate machines, though that is not really necessary.

The could be really fancy with buttons and back-lighting, but I wanted something that was easy to wash and maintain. Went with Pepsi here, as they have a more diverse group of sodas, plus they own Doritos and Frito Lay, making this a more plausible licensed product.

I don’t know about you, but I would enjoy bringing one of these to work or school.

Reusable Coffee Cup Lids

In a perfect world everyone would be carrying a travel mug or thermos at all times, to help curb the waste generated by single-use coffee cups and their lids. Perhaps there is another way: a compact device that would reduce the need for plastic lids.

Cadbury Creme Eggs Bar

Cadbury Creme Egg Bar by Dave Delisle dave's geeky ideas

In Canada we have this cruel annual tradition where Cadbury Creme Eggs are sold from Jan 1st until Easter, then poof, they’re gone. I would like a year-round variant that combines the eggs with the Caramilk bar. If this became a thing, all of the turmoil that plagues our great country¬†would be completely eradicated. No pressure, Cadbury.

Here is a bonus Twix S’mores idea. Hershey makes several S’mores bars, I would just like them in the Twix format. I think the graham crackers would preserve the “cookie-ness” that Twix are known for. The layer of caramel would set this apart from Hershey’s offerings, in my opinion.

McDonald’s Halloween Safety Lights

Thought I’d offer a new spin on those classic McDonald’s Halloween pails: safety lights for Trick-or-Treaters. These tiny lights could be clipped to shoes, lanyards, wrist bands, or anywhere really.
