I often get thoughts and don’t write them down or tell anyone, I suppose it’s the same for most of us.
But here’s one that won’t escape and perhaps some Doctor Who fans would like it.
I’m thinking about a mini TARDIS, you all should know what that looks like.
The idea is that it’s supposed to look like a decorative item, and nothing more, however.
One of the panels can be removed, via a trick. See it’s got items inside it which you’ve hidden from thieves, It’s kind of unlikely that someone is going to want to make off with a cumbersome TARDIS.
Once this panel is off, you find that you have access to an area which is only a few centimeters deep, for accessing the lighting, small neon or flouro lights like you might use in a computer case mod, and these shine through the frosted glass panels on the side of the TARDIS.
However, a second panel comes off, there’s a trick to that too, which has shelving for external hard drives.
These hard drives are wired in and are turned on with the lighting, there is also a hidden USB outlet under another hidden panel, so that you can plug your computer in.
There’s another shelf which is big enough to slide a laptop into, it may also contain a charger.
The TARDIS is probably no higher than most Peoples knee, so I’m not suggesting a huge box although I think a Life-Sized model would be extremely cool too.
So about enough room for six external drives (like the WD ones), better if they’re all
the one style, to fit in better… A super quiet fan, and hidden vents… You don’t want to give the game away that this is anything more than a mere lamp.
The doors should not look like doors, and would not open unless someone knew how it was done.
And perhaps the phone box on the outside of the TARDIS could function as a phone charger and would open easily, so that you could grab your phone in a hurry… and nobody would spot you opening secret doors.
And of course you could keep anything else in there too, photos, jewels etc.
