Nomadic Display

So I acquired part of a Nomadic Display today. Basically its this giant expandable metal thing that is used at trade shows and stuff to show off your goods. Sort of like the top two parts of this picture here.

So Joey and I are trying to brainstorm some good uses for it, and this is what we’ve come up with so far (obviously it needs some sort of tarp or something to go over it for most of these):

  • Hang glider, or maybe a kite or something
  • A tent or lean-to
  • Some sort of backdrop thing behind a couch (add a few lights and speakers)
  • A crazy bookshelf of some kind
  • A torture device of some kind (although this would require finding someone to torture)
  • A trade show display of some kind (real original, eh?)

Got any ideas? I plan on taking lots of pictures of whatever it is I end up doing with this contraption.


  1. How about a coffee table?

    I think you might be able to use it to build a toboggan sled.

  3. Mayakovski

    I think she would be lots of fun as a toboggan.
