The ThinkGeek Newsletter!
December 3, 2004
Well hello again all! It seems like just 2 weeks ago that
we were chatting with you about glowing snowmen and ants
from space. But wait, it WAS two weeks ago! Funny how time
works, all linearly and such. Speaking of time, it's time
to show you another round of last minute goodies that have
hit the e-shelves just in time for the holiday season.
Remember, the early surfer gets the bandwidth! Or something
like that. Now check out the goods!
What's New @ ThinkGeek !!
The ThinkGeek 2004 Holiday Season Rub
In cased you missed it last round, check out the link below
for great gift ideas for you and yours, the skinny on
shipping cutoffs, our customer service hours, returns 411
and much more. Check out our Holiday Gift center here:
Albert Einstein Action Figures
Dressed for intense classroom action, this 5-1/4" (13.3 cm)
tall, hard vinyl Einstein Action Figure stands with a piece
of chalk in his hand, poised to explain relativity or do
battle with the forces of entropy. Place him on your desk
for instant inspiration. After all, in comparison to Albert
you likely have the brainpower of a gnat and need all the
inspiration you can get on those sluggish Monday mornings.
Features realistic disheveled hair!
Planisphere Watch - Chart the night sky
Break out your handy planisphere - oh you don't have one?
Well, no problem then we've got you covered. This unique
watch features a planisphere that can be rotated to line-up
the date and time and reveal the constellations visible in
the Nothern Hemisphere. Also, the planisphere itself will
glow in the dark for 2 to 3 hours for great visibility.
Great for astronomers or even wannabes.
A security key for your PC
The PriveKey is a unique tool for enabling security and
privacy of your data and internet access. The combining of
software with hardware creates a multi-tiered level of
security that is far superior to the standard password
protections. You can regulate and block internet access
with WebLock (i.e. - Internet Explorer simply does not
connect to the internet when the PriveKey is removed). It
is also possible to create and protect up to four
partitions on a single hard drive with one PriveKey.
Portable Bluetooth Keyboard
What's the point in having a high-powered handheld device
if it's not simple to enter data into it? The world's
first five-row folding Bluetooth keyboard allows you to
easily input data and navigate through all the menus on
your device. When you're done, simply fold the unit up and
slip it into your pocket for easy portability!
Never set your watch again - Atomic time
A beautiful merging of materials and technology go into
creating these watches from German manufacturer Junghans
(making watches since 1861.) These watches automatically
set to the correct time by wireless reception of the Atomic
clock radio signal. The watches also have a LCD display
with date and reception indicator and flat sapphire glass.
Ninja Is Not Just Air! - The ThinkGeek NINJA Duster
A NINJA duster? You heard right. What better way to deal
with the menace of invading dust than to utilize the mad
skills of a Ninja. And this isn't your typical NINJA
duster. Using advancements in dusting technology via
ThinkGeek Cleanliness Labs (TM), we've been able to design
a product that, instead of just formulated pressurized air,
spews forth Dust-slaying Nano-shurikens of Doom to ensure
your electronics are as clean as an operating room on a
planet filled with obsessive-compulsive surgeons. Don't
believe us? Just ask! Get some NINJA in a can here:
Stikfas - Unique Action Figures
Action figures for the 21st century; these small,
incredibly posable, uniquely customizable, addictive
buggers are guaranteed to provide infinite nano-seconds of
enjoyment. Stikfas are designed to be used right away after
assembly allowing you to instantly create very nifty
articulations and poses. But they are also tinkerer
friendly! The solid plastic parts allow your inner modder
to venture forth so that you can shave, cut, saw, sand, and
even paint your Stikfas! Check 'em out here:
Aqua3 Gaming Pad
The Aqua3 gaming pad is designed for PC gamers who like
plenty of room to roam while they're fragging away. It
features a unique thin design and a skid-resistant rubber
backing to ensure it doesn't slide around your desktop.
The fine-woven surface is super smooth, and should allow
for some deadly frag sessions...
Mighty Blasters - Industrial Strength Fog Blasters
Creating instant fog is no longer the sole domain of Ninjas
or magicians! Why get left behind? Checkout the new Mighty
Blasters now! They'll shoot 8-12 inch diameter safe water-
based Vapor-rings up to 20 feet away. Four power settings
allow you to control the speed with which the vapor rings
are thrust from the blaster. The fog launcher easily
detaches from the 'cannon' (which makes the rings) and can
be used as a hand-held special effects machine:
Some gaming shirts for young and old alike...
It didn't seem that long ago that we sat around with our
friends, rolling dice, figuring hit points, and geeking out
to the max playing our favorite roll playing games. That
was the beginning for many of us, and our +20 Shirt of
Smiting, although not entirely technically possible, is a
powerful reminder of what the roll of a die can accomplish.
If you're a fan of the newer games, you and Master Chief
should get along quite nicely. All he needs is a weapon.
Geek out with our new shirts here:
