The Versatile Bob-omb

Bob-omb by davesgeekyideas

This might give you some disturbing insight to my mind, but today I was installing the lights on my bike, I thought to myself: “You know what would be cool, is if they made blinking tail lights in the guise of a Bob-omb” Even just a flat disc-shaped version would be great. 

Transformers Digital Camera

Autobot Matrix Camera by Dave's Geeky Ideas

A few weeks back I designed a digital camera with a View-Master theme. I was hard-pressed to come up with another camera idea that was as much fun. Then I asked myself: what other object would you hold in front of yourself like a camera? It then struck me: The Autobot Matrix Of Leadership.

The handles on the Matrix make for a perfect camera, much like those large box cameras from the 30’s and 40’s.

This design was made possible by using a Ring Flash. Otherwise I’d have difficulty placing the the flash and lens in a way that preserves the look of the Matrix.

View-Master 3D Camera

Cameras are one of those electronic segments that follow the thinner sleeker sexier mantra of design. Well what if you want something clunky, bulky, and straight-up geeky? I give you this simple concept: a digital camera with a View-Master theme. This design is timely, as 3D digital photography is growing in popularity.

Spongebob Squarepants Alarm Clock

Apparently there is a whole armada of Spongebob Squarepants alarm clocks, but none of them are a replica of the one used by Spongebob himself on the show; and I’m really surprised by that. Statistically speaking there are “morning people” who want to emulate the sponge’s wake-up routine.

Mad Scientist Gear Part 1: Light Switches

 

Mad Scientist Light Switches

It recently dawned on me that I tend to laugh maniacally and wring my hands just before I hit the ‘Publish’ button for every post, so therefore I must have a Mad Scientist complex. As I began to cope with this realization, I thought it would be best to come up with some ideas that would suit my lifestyle.

So I begin the Mad Scientist series with a pair of light switch designs, both of which resemble an old-school industrial fuse box lever. These simple accessories are often equated to Doc Brown or Dr. Frankenstein, where the act of flipping the switch was the moment of truth – there was no turning back.
