This can also be done with Pikachu and his tail, however I went with Donkey Kong because I dig his tie. This is a protective case with a picture frame stand and game storage. Do read on!

Toy Chest That Transforms Into A Playset

I attempted this design a year or so ago, but when I finished it the thing looked like a deathtrap so I shelved it, and opted to post this instead. This time I took child safety into consideration (for once) and made a super-simple toy chest that transforms into a playset.

Crumb-Buster Cereal Container

I’m a little embarrassed to post this, because it has that “seen on TV gizmo” vibe, so apologies in advance. This is my take on cereal Tupperware containers, and it combats those small crumbly bits that taint the last bowl of Cheerios.

Nintendo Classic Mini Carrying Case

Carrying cases are trendy again, thanks to the surging popularity of the NES and SNES Classic Mini consoles. Thought I would design a case that features a built-in monitor, a handy feature for gamers who want a compact gaming rig, or a means to game on the go. This case is about the size of a large lunchbox, and was inspired by portable record players.

It transforms from a suitcase into a retro TV, complete with a wheeled cart (the wheels are also functional in suitcase mode). The TV is a USB-powered portable LCD monitor. The flaps on the sides of the case clamp everything down in both suitcase and TV mode.

The transformation adds a great deal of versatility; theoretically you could always use this case, either as an entertainment center or means of transporting the game system. You never really have to remove the console.

There is a drawer beneath the system to store controllers and accessories, perhaps a power supply as well for mobile gaming.

Jewel Case Game Consoles

I expect we’ll be getting clone consoles for the first wave of disc-based systems (like the PSX, Sega CD, 3DO, Saturn, and Dreamcast) any month now. So I thought I’d put together a console design that can lend itself to all cartridge and disc-based systems.

Ghostbusters Wall Hooks

Recently I’ve been thinking about doing an interior for the Ghostbusters tiny house that I posted a few weeks ago, and one of my first thoughts was to make some coat hooks for the entrance. It then sprang into my head to use ghost traps, and they were amusing enough to warrant their own post so I’m sharing it here.

They not only serve as coat hooks, but as storage for your keys and wallet. There’s a small drawer behind the trap doors:

This is sort of thing I would force kids to make in shop class, instead of napkin holders and bird houses. I would then give them failing grades, confiscate their work, and sell the wares on eBay.

Pro Sports Locker Hall Tree

Custom NHL Furniture by Dave Delisle

A Hall Tree is a coat rack combined with a storage bench that is parked by the front door or in a mud room; here are some examples. I feel these Hall Trees could be made to look like player lockers from the pro leagues (NHL, NBA, NFL, etc.). The above design is based on the actual lockers belonging to the Calgary Flames, but you could do this with any pro team.
