Several years ago I posted a Ghostbusters nightlight design that functioned like a small standalone sign. Upon reflection I think it would be better if it was a USB wall adapter that also doubled as a nightlight.
It would illuminate when charging a device, or when the room was dark (thanks to a light sensor). The power prongs fold up for convenience.
More furniture designed with geeks in mind, this is a simple bed frame that will hold your phone or tablet for you. Let’s be real, 99% of people climb into bed staring at a screen, so why not get the bed to hold it up for you?

Tamagotchis allowed people to care for virtual pets, and I thought Baby Yoda would be ideal for such a toy. Now you can look after the little green spud, or frequently endanger him just like the TV show does.

Logitech started selling some accessories for the excellent Xbox Adaptive Controller, so I thought I’d pitch this controller accessory. It could potentially allow gamers to drive a car with a single finger.

I’ve owned an LDK Game Console for several months now, and every time I use the thing I’m reminded of BMO from Adventure Time. Just swap a few colors around and you are done. I’m hoping LDK considers issuing this color variant in the future, I would certainly grab one.
Sony owns PlayStation and Ghostbusters, so why not combine the two? This is a very simple design: the back of the case is molded in red, the shoulder buttons are translucent blue for the sirens, and lastly the USB cable is royal blue to match the hose that hangs on the car.
Thought about making the OPTIONS and SHARE buttons yellow, but they are probably injection molded with the rest of the buttons (whereas the shoulder buttons are a different color). I also wanted to add chrome accents, but that would be difficult too.
Maybe Sony could make these as a promo product for the new movie? A matching console could be done as well (if there’s interest I could add a mockup here), but without a new tie-in game that would be unlikely.
The THOR Hammer Tool Set was recently given the mini treatment, thought I’d do the same for the He-Man power bar that I posted a few years ago. This time the power sword is a compact USB wall adapter that also doubles as a Nite Lite.
I wanted this to be illuminated to simulate the “I have the POWER” sequence. It lights up when something is plugged-in, or automatically at night thanks to a light sensor.
The power prongs fold down to make this convenient for travel. A purple variant for Skeletor could also be done, something I didn’t mention in that power bar post. In hindsight I would also like the old power bar design to be illuminated, like this other power bar I designed.
