Large Game Boy Design

Large Game Boy Design by Dave Delisle

There are portable SNES and NES systems that are very large in size, due to the big cartridges that they cater to. One cool thing about these systems is that they can be turned into a normal console, just add some controllers. You even have the option of connecting them to a TV.

I would like to see a Game Boy that is similar in size to those aforementioned systems, with the same controller and TV functionality. The 5-inch screen alone would be a worthwhile selling point for many gamers.

To switch from portable mode to console mode, I included a built-in adjustable stand which also doubles as a cover for the SNES controller ports:

I chose SNES controllers because those ports are smaller, plus I find the SNES controllers to be more comfortable in general.

I went with a built-in stand because this system would have a thinner profile compared to those other large portables, so some help was needed to keep it upright.

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.

Green Lantern Bluetooth Speaker And Headphones

Green Lantern Headset and Speaker by Dave Delisle

This is a Bluetooth Speaker and Headphones combo, allowing users to toggle between both audio options for their smartphones. I also added a wireless charging pad for a smartphone — because the Lantern needs to recharge something, right? The wireless pad is optional, I imagine many people would be happy with just the first two items.

Hyperkin Retron 77 Redesign

Last year Hyperkin unveiled their Retron 77, an Atari clone system with HDMI output. It has a similar look to their recent Retron 1 HD and Supa Retron HD systems. The company makes good-looking clone systems so I’m a big fan of theirs.

BTTF Time Circuits Alarm Clock

This again? Yes I posted a design 8 years ago, and it got some traction with fans. I’m now sharing this version of the concept because there have been a few close calls in making it an actual product, but one of the biggest hurdles was the cost to manufacture this.

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.

Inception Travel Alarm Clock

When they opened up the suitcase that contained the “Dream Sharing Device” in Inception, the upper section reminded me of a clock face, so I threw this alarm clock design together.

It has a compact clamshell case based on the suitcase, typical of many travel alarm clocks. It could beep or buzz people awake, perhaps even play the kick song as well.
