The ThinkGeek Newsletter!

April 1, 2009

Balatrones,

Welcome all to ThinkGeek's favorite newsletter of the year. Our second favorite newsletter being the one that expunges all our memories of the love scenes in Attack of the Clones. Our third favorite newsletter is the kind that gets us a few dozen seats at the Hollywood premier of the new Star Trek movie (hint, hint). But this newsletter is our most favorite because ThinkGeek gets to dip into it's magic brainhat and pull out all kinds of impossibly incredible rabbits for your diversion and delight...

Squeez Bacon - Quite Possibly The World's Most Perfect Food

Squeez Bacon - Quite Possibly The World's Most Perfect Food

Every once in a while a product comes around that puts life into perspective. When we got our first bottles of Squeez Bacon (from Sweden) to taste test, we each had a moment of pure revelation. For years, we had thought that the BBBLBT (Bacon-Bacon-Bacon-Lettuce-Bacon-Tomato) sandwich was the pinnacle of gastronomic enjoyment. And suddenly, after a single taste of Squeez Bacon, our world was rocked. Squeez Bacon is imported straight from its Swedish source and delivers taste right out of the bottle - no cooking or refrigeration needed. Enjoy all the flavor and health benefits of bacon, without having to slave over a frying pan. Squeez Bacon is the official bacon food product of all the kings and queens of Europe. Oh, Squeez Bacon, where have you been all our lives?!?!

Interactive Portal Shirts - GLaDOS + ThinkGeek = One Amazing Shirt

ThinkGeek has teamed up with the GLaDOS computer and Aperture Science Labs to bring you an amazing re-creation of the Portal Gun in a convenient T-Shirt based format. Sadly, actual teleportation is impossible, but due to the computing power of GLaDOS we were able to create a simulation of active teleportation portals. The Interactive Portal Shirts use two wireless 5.8 GHz video cameras mounted in the front of each shirt along with two high-res LCD TFT screens. The camera in the orange shirt transmits the image to the screen of the blue shirt, and vise versa. In this manner, it seems as if a fully functional portal has been created between the chests of both subjects. Amazing! And that's no lie.

Unicorn Chaser - Balm of the Internets

Unicorn Chaser - Balm of the Internets

Hey, remember how awful you felt that time you were clicking on the internets and you saw a picture of your grandmother parasailing naked off the coast of Bermuda? Remember how your eyes, brain, and lunch all threatened to leave your body at once? Wouldn't it be nice if there was a magical elixir that would rid your body and mind of those icky feelings? Well, now there is: the Unicorn Chaser. Theorized by Cory Doctorow, and now realized by ThinkGeek in partnership with BoingBoing. Drink your Unicorn Chaser as fast as possible after seeing an offending image or video, and the special blend of herbs and minerals will go to work instantly to restore your equilibrium and sanity. Does it work? Let's put it this way: yes! Why do you need it? Because the world is a scary place (and most of it is visible online).

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag - Slumber in the Belly of the Beast

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag - Slumber in the Belly of the Beast

In the sub-zero wasteland of the planet Hoth, only the strong survive... and of course those lucky Jedi protected by the thick skin of a Tauntaun. Now ThinkGeek Labs has recreated the warm fur of a Tauntaun in a more convenient format. This high-quality sleeping bag looks just like a Tauntaun, complete with saddle, internal intestines and LED Luke Skywalker Lightsaber zipper pull. Use the lightsaber zipper pull on the Tauntaun sleeping bag to illustrate to your wee-ones how Han Solo saved Luke Skywalker from certain death in the freezing climate of Hoth by slitting open the belly of a dead Tauntaun and placing Luke inside the stinking (but warm) carcass. If your kids don't change their tune on which Star Wars film is the greatest ever, you can do your best Jar Jar impression until they repent.

USB Pet Rock - We Will USB Rock You

Let's face it: even if you take the time to learn about it, history repeats itself. Everything that's old becomes new, and the Pet Rock fad of the 70s is no exception. But we've added our own touch to the phenomenon: a USB cable. That's right, now you can get yourself a USB Pet Rock. What does it do? Abso-frickin-lutely nothing. And therein lies the beauty, for this is, without a doubt, the greenest USB gadget ever created (it draws absolutely no electricity). But it sits on your desk and looks up at you (with imaginary eyes) and for some reason, you'll feel happier. As everyone stares at it in confusion, you'll feel even more happy. And best of all, the USB Pet Rock is plug-and-play compatible with all past, present, and future operating systems. So get your USB Pet Rock today; everybody's doing it.

The Ultimate Assassin's Weapon - Just Add Water

The Ultimate Assassin's Weapon - Just Add Water

The perfect assassination (as video games have taught us) is the one that cannot be traced back to the assassin. Of course, the easiest way to avoid being traced is to bring the weapon with you, but that's still very risky. The best way to ensure your safety is to make the weapon disappear - literally. The Ultimate Assassin's Weapon is just what you need: just add water and pop the silicone mold into your freezer. In no time you will have a razor sharp ice dagger ready for use. A dagger that is deadly enough to penetrate a body, but fragile enough to melt into simple water - water that will quickly blend into the now flowing blood. Of course we really don't want you to kill anyone; think of this as the ultimate gaming party ice. But just in case, the Ultimate Assassin's Weapon will make sure you'll be ready for anything.
