The ThinkGeek Newsletter!

November 15, 2007

Hello friends!

Wowzers, it seems to be that time of year where those of you who are apathetic about procrastination are already thinking about holiday gifting. And with games like Super Mario Galaxy and the Orange Box to keep you tied up, we realize sometimes you simply don't have time to do the thinking. Good news. The bots and droids here at ThinkGeek enjoy sacrificing sanity in an attempt to delight you. Thusly, we have a whole slew of new High and Low Tech Thingies, Exorbitant Gizmos, & Enchanted Stuffs for your consideration. And for whatever it's worth, we still believe. We have hope. There must be cake. There must be...

LED Jellyfish Mood Lamp

Simulated Bioluminescence

LED Jellyfish Mood Lamp

There is a species of jellyfish that has a specific protein (GFP) for bioluminescence. Scientists use this protein as a light up marker for genetic manipulations of various microorganisms (even a bunny, but don't get us started on that). But all those microorganisms stink and can only glow green. That's boring, and not hygienic for your office. That's why we are bringing you the LED Jellyfish Moodlamp. Sure the jellyfish are synthetic, but the gentle and realistic simulated propulsion will make your co-workers heads turn and force any nearby zooplankton to cower in fear. As they swim they will nimbly morph into a myriad of soothing colors (thanks to the six bright LEDs nestled in the lid of the tank). A guy told us once that soothing colors have significantly been shown to be soothing, and hence will affect mood. So there you have it, the LED Jellyfish Mood Lamp. Brilliant!

Get jiggly with our Desktop LED Jellyfish Mood Lamp right here:

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

DIY Neon Sign Kit - Spell it out in glowing neon

DIY Neon Sign Kit - Spell it out in glowing neon

Yeah, it's true that neon signs have a definite retro feel to them, but at the same time they never really go out of style. Especially if you can make your own neon sign using easy snap-together characters. Simply purchase the power supply and the letters you need to tell the world your message, in glowing blue neon. Then prepare for the awesome.

Jumbo Binary LED Clocks - Binary, It's What Rules The World

Binary is the native language to the hardcore geek, much like asshat is the native language of the typical middle manager. We understand that. Besides, geeks enjoy having what might be considered esoteric knowledge about the underpinnings of the technology revolution. That's why we love the Jumbo Binary Clock. Mount it on your wall or let it rest on your desktop with the included stand. Choose between red or blue LED versions, each available with powers of two or true binary display modes. These designer-approved clocks are simply pure cranium:

i-SOBOT Micro Humanoid Robot - Sophisticated Mini Robot from Japan

When Tomy of Japan decided to bring this amazing fully articulated humanoid robot stateside we were giddy as schoolgirls to get the I-SOBOT into our hot little hands, but having to cancel our planned robot acquisition mission to Tokyo was a bit of a downer. With 17 servo motors and amazing lifelike movement, the i-SOBOT is certainly one of the most sophisticated consumer robots ever created.

Astronaut Ice Cream - Dessert from space

Astronaut Ice Cream - Dessert from space

Astronauts get it so sweet. They get to wear cool space clothes, ride in spectacular space cars, and get to party on the International Space Station. And what's more, they get to eat cool space food, most importantly all that freeze dried ice cream. We've made a deal with some rogue astronauts so we can now offer this dry yet creamy goodness to you! And if you want the real astronaut experience, just eat some standing on your head.

Extreme Range WiFi Router - A Quarter Mile of Wireless Internet

WiFi is awesome, but the one problem it has is limited range. Sure, you can reach the bathroom from your router (if that's your thing), but can you reach the back yard? How about the garage? How about a quarter-mile away? The Extreme Range WiFi router has the most powerful radio allowed by law, and the sensitivity to reach even weak clients a quarter of a mile away! It's a smorgasbord of bandwidth, and you've got the biggest fork at the table.

Two Hi-tech Globes For Home & Office - Savor The Planet!

There is nothing so precious to all of us as Planet Earth. Except, of course, a great comic book and an even better beer. And since for the most part, folks here on Planet Earth don't seem to mind that our planet is slowly withering, we figured we would sell some Hi-tech Planet Earth mini replicas (globes) as sort of pre-Armageddon souvenirs. Choose between the Anti-Gravity globe (levitates from the bottom base alone!) and the Celestial Globe (light sensor converts globe into an LED constellation display at night!). Or get both!

Chewbacca Plush Backpack - Is that a Wookiee on your back?

Sometimes it's cool to have a hairy back - but only when the source of that hair is a Wookiee. This backpack is just perfect for hiding your appropriated Imperial blasters, a copy of "Starship Repair for Fun and Profit," or a change of underwear. Chewie's arms hug your shoulders and his legs can clip around your stomach, for that all-out Wookiee hug. And the best thing is that Chewie's shoulder bag (dare we say: purse) is functional and cold hold things, too. WAAAAARGH!
