Jaws Scent Bottle

Jaws Scent Bottle design by Dave Delisle

Here’s a fun design: a Jaws-branded cologne or perfume bottle. There aren’t too many geeky scents out there, so why not? I imagine this would have a pleasant ocean or sea-breeze scent, as I doubt anyone would want to smell like chum.

Fans of the film will recognize what’s going on here, but for those who don’t know: the cap is the yellow buoy that was tethered to the shark in the film; the hose extending from the pump looks like the rope used for the tether, and it appears to be attached to a shark at the bottom of the bottle.

I went with a conventional bottle design here, otherwise I’d make it look closer to a gas container, with an angled buoy to give it the appearance of being towed by a shark.

Spider-Man Floss Dispenser

Recently I stumbled across these fun floss dispensers for kids, and they reminded me of something I once thought of: a floss dispenser based on Spider-Man. The webhead would now combat the evils of gingivitis with his floss webbing! I’m sure kids would dig this, and I have a feeling that a few adults would like one too.

A Dr. Octopus toothbrush holder would compliment Spidey perfectly, now that I think of it.

Super Mario Bathroom Sink Fixtures

Super Mario Bathroom Sink Fixtures

When it comes to indoor plumbing why not have a Super Mario-themed bathroom sink? You got your mushroom handles, a Warp Pipe faucet, and a Piranha Plant that acts as the lever for the drain plug thingy. You could also enlist a Chain Chomp to act as a drain stopper for an older sink.

Note: it’s not very apparent here, but on top of the mushrooms are round-shaped H and C letters to indicate hot and cold water.

Comic Book Mirrors

Comic Book Mirror Decals

The idea of using a magazine cover as a mirror is an old one. Why not a comic book-themed mirror for us geeks?

I am proposing a rectangular mirror that comes with the logo, masthead, and barcode from a comic book cover; essentially turning the mirror into a comic book where you are the hero. OR this could be a set of decals that you can apply to any mirror.

In my opinion this mirror would be a great confidence booster. Think of it: if you are seeing yourself labelled as Superman or Wonder Woman daily, you might subconsciously subscribe to the notion that you are indeed super.

I’m informed that decals used for cars would do the trick, because they are immune to UV light and moisture, making them ideal for the bathroom mirror.

Superman Cape Towel

One of the first items I designed for my “Geeky IKEA” series was a desk based on the Fortress of Solitude. In truth, that idea was far less ambitious than I originally envisioned. What I wanted was a WHOLE bathroom based on the Fortress, one that would feature a sink that looked like the crystal control panel, a shower cabinet which resembled the chamber that turned Superman into a human (Superman II), lots of frosted glass – the whole nine yards. The topper was some towels that were plain blue, and one that looked like Superman’s cape.
