A few years ago they released an MP3 player based on Soundwave, but personally I wish they offered a stereo system based on his Autobot counterpart, Blaster. He would just look at home on the bookshelf or entertainment unit.
It doesn’t even have to be an official product, just the basic shape and colors, and fans could add their own Autobot insignia.
Cassettes are pretty much dead, so a cassette-like display would be fun. Standard features like a CD player, Bluetooth, and iPod dock could also be included. I’d probably include an remote that looked like a cassette.
You might have seen those beautiful wood alarm clocks with displays that peer through the wood in the front. That was the approach here, with the addition of Janine’s “WE GOT ONE” button on top that functions as a snooze button.

I don’t think it’s possible for aftermarket car fobs to be a thing, but if they were I’d like to see one based on the Communo Crystal device from the Last Starfighter. I doubt Centauri would come to the rescue if the Alarm button were pressed.
UPDATE: So this is a thing now. Available with the European special editions of the upcoming Splinter Cell game. Original post as follows:
This watch is based on the night vision goggles worn by Sam Fisher. There could also be a red variant for the bad guys.
I designed this BTTF alarm clock based on the Time Coordinates display from the Delorean. It automatically changes the alarm date to tomorrow on a daily basis, unless you want to push it forward a few days because of the weekend.
Here’s a pair of Portal-themed speakers that would flank your gaming PC. The red eyes would pulse to the audio of the music. In all likelihood these would be static speakers to avoid noisy motors, but if possible these guys would “dance” just like in the game (when they sang at the end of Portal 2).
Wireless charging pads emerged onto the scene a few years ago, and they are a brilliant innovation. Merely place your compatible gadget on top the pad/mat, and it will recharge through osmosis (actually with electro-magnetic induction to be precise). No wires needed, except for the one used to plug the mat in of course.
The simple interface of these recharging mats reminded me of the famous Star Trek villains the Borg and their ‘recharging stations’. So making a borg-themed charger for your portable device seems like a sensible idea if you really think about it.
