Here’s a pair of Portal-themed speakers that would flank your gaming PC. The red eyes would pulse to the audio of the music. In all likelihood these would be static speakers to avoid noisy motors, but if possible these guys would “dance” just like in the game (when they sang at the end of Portal 2).
Here is blu-ray case design for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. Three CD-sized jewel cases are enclosed inside the Tumbler, which opens in similar fashion to the real-life Batmobile. This case would be on the larger side, about 12 inches long and 5 inches tall.

This Blu-Ray case design is based on the display case that encased the blue suit in Mr. Incredible’s office. In the front is a figurine of Mr. Incredible’s blue suit. It opens like a book to reveal the discs and booklet.

I recommend using card stock for this one, it is BIG. Normal paper might buckle. Also, my lame printer does not go as dark as I would like, so yours may be darker (do a test print). And lastly the diagram is designed with thicker card stock in mind, so scaling it down for normal paper might cause a few issues.

I’m trying to better my papercraft skills, so I thought I’d start simple by building the Weighted Companion Cube from Portal. Even that was too difficult! Why not something as simple as a cardboard box? *light-bulb goes off*

A simple device you place under your TV to recreate the viewscreen lights seen under the main screen in Star Trek. Powered by USB, which all TVs have these days. It could emit Sound Effects like the pings heard on the show.
Thinkgeek kicked the tires on this one, but I don’t think they’ll be making it.
This is an open-ended idea, so bear with me. Basically it’s an R2-D2 figure on a platform interacting with one of those revolving gears (as he often does). There would be 2 motors, one to revolve R2’s head and one to revolve the gear. This toy would feature lights and sounds.
As for its function this gadget could be: a bookend, a USB hub, a recharging dock for your phone, a wireless speaker, a desk lamp, and so on. The gist of the idea is that R2 appears to be “assisting” you by turning that gear.
Personally I’d love to have him placed against the wall on my desk (like the picture above), connected to my computer via USB. He’d then react to me opening programs or writing files, stuff like that.
There are many possibilities for this gadget! I have a feeling that we’ll see something like this one day, as there seems to be a new electronic R2-D2 toy coming out every week.
