Six years ago a very cool Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 was released. It featured a C3PO controller and R2D2 console that made beeping sounds just like the astromech droid. The release of this special edition console was due to the pack-in game: Kinect Star Wars.

I had a bunch of Tiny House designs ready to go when I posted that Ghostbusters one a few years back, I just simply forgot about them until now. Here is the second Tiny Home design: the Sandcrawler from Star Wars.

Actually this is more like a Braava, which is the mop version of the Roomba, but everyone calls them Roombas so bear with me. Went with a Braava because they are taller (due to the water reservoir), also the Mouse Droid looks more at home on smooth floors than on shaggy carpets.
Removed the spiky things on the roof to make the reservoir friendlier to access. Also cats like to ride these things so may as well make it flat on top.
Originally I designed this to be a Roomba but those vacuums are designed to sneak under couches and chairs, and the Mouse Droid is simply too tall.
Here is a Han Solo USB Desk Grommet that plugs into a desk grommet, obviously. This design could also come in a “car charger” variant that could plug into a cup holder. The base has LEDs that illuminate when a device is plugged in.

Jabba the Hutt’s throne room struck me as an ideal bed design, because the gangster and all his henchmen/guards also sleep in that room, so why not make a bunk bed out of it?
For this bunk bed a more conventional design was employed, because I want something that is straightforward to build, or would allow people to modify existing beds. Previous bed designs I have posted here are too cost-prohibitive to make.
The top bed is Jabba’s throne room, the bottom bed is the Rancor pit. For child safety reasons there is no trap door! Jabba’s level features a perch for the giant slug and a Han Solo in Carbonite tucked to the side. The Rancor pit features rocky wallpaper, cage siding, and LED lighting activated by a familiar switch.
Both beds have some flat counter space at the back of the frame, where toys can be parked. Whether it’s plush or regular Star Wars toys, this bed is essentially a giant playset.
Big post today! Like the previous post, here is another bed design that I discarded a few months ago, because several others beat me to the punch. I’m posting it now because I felt there needed to be a design that was more functional and aimed at grown-ups.

As you probably know, geeks enjoy going to the beach so they can kick sand at helpless muscleheads, because we need to assert our dominance constantly. All of the taunting and bullying can make a geek thirsty, so it’s imperative to keep cold beverages nearby. With that dilemma in mind, I give you: the Sandcrawler cooler!
