Transforming Arcade Cabinet

Transformers Arcade Cabinet by Dave Delisle

Here’s an arcade cabinet that can transform into a driving cabinet, ideal for playing a greater variety of arcade games while saving some space in your living quarters. This is my dream gaming device, allowing me to stand up and play Pac-Man, or sit on my butt and play American Truck Simulator.

Portal Personal Assistant

I am very intrigued by the potential of Amazon’s line of personal assistants (Alexa and Echo), my hope is that one day we get HAL 9000 and GLaDOS versions of the device. Thought I would take a stab at the latter, but GLaDOS’ robotic body doesn’t fit so I enlisted the Companion Cube and the incinerator. This would still feature GLaDOS’ voice, in an ideal world.

Nintendo Switch Lamp

At first glance this is your typical LED desk lamp, with adjustable arm and pivoting light, nothing special. You park it by the couch or bed, and it blends into the scenery. But upon closer inspection this lamp becomes a handy device for for Switch gamers.

Transformers PC Tower Case

Soundwave PC case mod by Dave Delisle

Those aren’t cassette spindles, they are PC case fans which help keep your expensive hardware cool. It was that idea that launched my latest design: a PC tower case based on the infamous Decepticon, Soundwave. Consoles inferior, PC superior, the monotone robot would say.

Baymax Suitcase

This actually started out as a First-Aid kit design, but then I saw those wheels on Baymax’s charging station in the film and decided to make this a suitcase instead. Probably for the better, suitcases are more likely to be seen and used than your typical household First-Aid kit.

Iron Giant Coffee Table

Had this idea for years, I just didn’t want to post it because it may be too ugly/weird for this blog. Seeing as the Iron Giant Blu-ray release is around the corner, I’m in a good mood so I felt like sharing it now.

As you can see, it’s a life-size replica of the titular robot’s detached hand, parked in the living room just like a scene from the film. Frozen as though it were trying to remain incognito, this giant hand serves as a coffee table for geeks.

Iron Man Garage Set

Iron Man DUM-E Garage Set by Dave's Geeky Ideas

After I posted that THOR Hammer Tool Box a few months ago my first thought was, Iron Man is the handy one, he should get a cool tool set too. Tony Stark’s love of cars inspired me to create something specifically for garage-dwelling gearheads: a DUM-E robot comprised of things found in your typical garage.

DUM-E is made up of a shop-vac, pressure washer, mechanic’s creeper, and leaf blower. The latter three all attach to the main vacuum body, and can be removed as needed.
