This steamer trunk turned portable office, as far as design goes, is really quite beautiful. I would totally consider having it in my office (if I had an office) and would actually use it as my storage and work space if it wasn’t for the $4000 price tag.
As for traveling with it, I don’t think that is was actually the intention of the designers.
I wonder if I could get a faux-leather version for cheaper?

Astro-droid gaming console

October 13th, 2009 No comments

Not very long ago, in a place relatively nearby, a guy named Brian De Vitis totally became my hero. He took his R2D2 cooler and converted it into the ultimate game console. It has eight consoles, a projector and a sound system. And one of those gaming consoles is the Atari 7800 (I totally used to have one of those).

Rad.

I’m not personally a gamer, unless you count the few times a year I find myself in an actual arcade playing Galaga or House of the Dead. It’s really the Star Wars nerd in me that this really speaks to. The only improvement I can think of would be to make some of those controllers wireless.

And in the spirit of Star Wars creativity, I found this little nugget too that really spoke to the steampunk in me…
