View-Master 3D Camera

Cameras are one of those electronic segments that follow the thinner sleeker sexier mantra of design. Well what if you want something clunky, bulky, and straight-up geeky? I give you this simple concept: a digital camera with a View-Master theme. This design is timely, as 3D digital photography is growing in popularity.

Aliens Quadrilogy Blu-Ray Case

(Note: Updated April 12, 2014) As part of my recent blog cleanup, I have condensed this post to one image and a shorter write-up) Basically this case design uses the Armored Transport vehicle from Aliens to store all the films. The turret would slide to the back of the vehicle (just like it actually does in the film), allowing access to the cases.

For fun I think it would be cool to include a few Alien figures, so you can run them over just like Ripley did.

Spongebob Squarepants Alarm Clock

Apparently there is a whole armada of Spongebob Squarepants alarm clocks, but none of them are a replica of the one used by Spongebob himself on the show; and I’m really surprised by that. Statistically speaking there are “morning people” who want to emulate the sponge’s wake-up routine.

Star Wars Blu-Ray Case

This is a really basic design: R2D2’s body is essentially a canister of Blu-Ray discs (approximately a dozen discs). Each disc is accessible via an extending drawer:

Each drawer is manually opened. To ensure the disc is fully clear of R2’s body the drawers would telescope (almost like extending the dinner table to add a center cross piece).

This case would be on the bigger side: about 7″ wide and 9 – 10″ tall. Given its size I feel it has room for lights and sounds, which I’m sure most fans would love.
