Dave’s Geeky Ideas

March 10th, 2015 by Cobwebs

Ouija CarpetStop. Before you read any further, go clear your schedule for the next few hours. You’ll be spending them digging through the archives of Dave’s Geeky Ideas.

I found the ouija board decor photo above posted on an aggregator site, but for a wonder, the watermark hadn’t been cut off so I was able to find the original creator. It’s a concept design by Dave Delisle, and there’s lots more where that came from.

The site is devoted to just what it says on the tin: Geeky ideas that Dave has. As he says in his FAQ:

I post all kinds of ideas, usually of the geeky variety. I strive to create content that does not exist anywhere else. A lot of this is ‘dreaming out-loud’ or ‘food-for-thought’ or ‘wishful thinking’, but hopefully presented in an entertaining way.

He notes that he isn’t interested in manufacturing any of these things–frequently there are licensing or logistical obstacles–but he also doesn’t mind if somebody else is inspired to create something he’s suggested. He even recommends resources for the custom manufacture of his designs.

The site is a treasure trove of geeky and gothy DIY ideas, from a Zelda floating rupee to a Supernatural-inspired Blu-Ray case to a LOTR jewelry box (which would be a great way to showcase a prop ring).

Since the ideas are mostly just-throwing-it-out-there concept stuff, there obviously isn’t a lot of detail about how any particular item might be built. However, as a jumping-off point for your own creative ideas, this is an amazing resource.

    a super-geeky fridge light

    I immediately saw myself opening my fridge late at night, questing for thirst-quenchers and seeing the baleful eye of Sauron gazing back at me from the depths of the iceboox, staring at me from behind the lettuces.

    Also: oh man, that bunk bed!

    10/10 would work. Or at least surf Reddit.

    Okay, I just got lost in the Star Trek tag. A Borg cell phone charger! A ready room iPad swivel! A warp core light (mf’er better throb appropriately)!!! I want it allllllll.

    Also: I want to start referring to my office as my ready room.
