Here is a smaller version of the Thor Hammer Tool Set, this time the main handle is a flashlight. The included tools should be enough for minor tech repairs and other small jobs around the house.
There’s more products on the horizon! The closure of Thinkgeek last year really set a lot of plans back, mine included. I’m hoping Amazon creates a “fun geeky products” section one day, to highlight products similar to what Thinkgeek used to sell.
Here is another design using Heads-Up Display technology (more on that here), a personal assistant based on the mirror from Snow White. This was inspired by a recent episode of Black Mirror that featured an interactive toy with an emotive face. Why isn’t there a personal assistant with an animated face?

Now that we have the technology, it is possible to create a Game Boy that looks exactly as it appeared on the original packaging. Basically a back-lit keyboard meets the Game Boy. Just an idea for a possible Game Boy Classic.

This one is pretty straightforward, an iPad case based on the Speak & Spell educational toy from the 80’s (you whippersnappers might have seen it in the film E.T.). Obviously those from the late 70’s and early 80’s would appreciate the novelty of this idea more.
I know it’s a kids toy, but as I’ve often stated I like things that are inherently nostalgic. I believe only a few geeks would have scruples about being seen with such a childish case.
I suppose the only downside is the ironic hipster vibe this design wields. It’s retro, filled with social commentary about modern electronic devices, and is intended for an Apple product. I should just delete this post. *Sigh!* I’ll leave it be. You hipsters don’t linger around here too long, y’hear?
The odds of this happening are super-slim. Speak & Spell is owned by Texas Instruments, not exactly a competitor of Apple but no ally either.
Sorry to pimp other posts, but you might dig this Crayola 3DS case.
Initially I was going to make this a Blu-Ray case, but upon remembering how functional the Scare Floor Door System was in the film, I thought it would be better as a Blu-Ray/DVD player.

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.
The only fancy thing I did was to embed a display in the negative space of the carrying handle.
