ThinkGeek on Modern Marvels

A while back, we had the fine folks from the History Channel come by the glorious ThinkGeek Megaplex to film an episode of Modern Marvels. It was really cool to be part of such a great show, and the crew were a friendly bunch who were not at all afraid of our pack of dogs. We demoed all kinds of gadgets from helicopters to the Bluetooth Laser Keyboard and the Wifi Detector Shirt. We were geeking out pretty severly, but it was all in the name of entertainment, and as you may know, geeks are nothing if not entertaining!

Here's a shot of the setup to film one of the segments of the show. They had a lot of stuff, and oh boy is it intimidating to be shot up close in HD. Aiee! Watch for us in reruns of Modern Marvels - Episode 506 - Gadgets 3!

meaningless icon! I saw a cool @ss pen that you guys used on this episode that could write anywhere and would store/link to a PC or laptop. I think that this would be great to have, especially for lecture notes in college. Thanks a ton!
