Fellow Voyagers,

[Scene: Vulcan landscape. Cue Spock vs. Kirk fighting music.]

[Kirk] Spock, snap out of it!
[T'Pau] He cannot hear thee, Outworlder.
[Kirk] Oh, wait, let me make sure my shirt is torn.
[Spock] Grrrrrrr...
[T'Pau] The air is thick, and the Lirpa is not made for thee.
[Kirk] Then, can we use these instead?

Mom's Day May 10th! Progenitor, Protector, Probably Profulgent

Mom's Day May 10th! Progenitor, Protector, Probably Profulgent

If you weren't vat-borne, hatched, or hewn from the very fires of creation itself, you likely had a Mom - and she loves you. What's more, she deserves a gift - but flowers die, and you don't know what size slippers she wears, so instead show her nerdy love with some nifty gizmos she actually wants! Gloves that keep her hands warm, but fingertips free for touchscreen phones! Desktop personal humidifiers! Cool kitchen-gear like nifty wine aerators, plunger-style measuring cups like those used by nerdy TV chefs, and wocka-wocka Pac-Man potholders! She gave birth to you after all, the least you could do is shower her in schwag... and clean your room.

Retro Game Gadget Goodness

Retro Game Gadget Goodness

Amazing graphics, 3D bump mapping, realistic physics... sure all wonderful stuff. However when it comes to true gaming enjoyment, old skool is where it's at. ThinkGeek is here to help you capture some of that gaming nostalgia with brand spanking new Sega Dreamcast consoles in the original box. These arrived mysteriously at our warehouse... delivered by a blue hedgehog. So dig up that old copy of Soul Caliber and get cracking. Looking to turn the way-back-machine even further? We've also got some fine USB based NES controllers. These look and play just like the original. Perfect for NES emulators or MAME.

Gives your everyday objects new powers

The Violet RFID Mirror is a simple and elegant device that connects to your computer. It recognizes the objects you show it and performs tasks you've assigned to them. Simply affix RFID Ztamps to your objects and they become interactive, content-rich items. Examples of use are limitless: show your umbrella and it will give you the weather forecast; wave your keys and it will send an email to your loved ones saying you are back home safe; a coffee mug can modify your Facebook status to "coffee break." When sitting idle on your desk it can display light coded information for weather, stock quotes, etc.

Bringing Your Closet 14 New Shirts - We Heard It Was Lonely

Bringing Your Closet 14 New Shirts - We Heard It Was Lonely

We've got too many new t-shirts to be clever this week. Here's the rundown. Half of them are black (which means half of them are not-black for those fans playing along at home). 43% are a babydoll cut. 50% are based on a movie. 43% are based on a video game. 38% are based on a TV show. The cleverest amongst you have figured out that thematically we've added up to more than 100%. You'll see why in a sec. The themes in question: Revenge of the Nerds, Firefly, They Live, The Big Bang Theory, Atari, Rocky Horror, Resident Evil, Futurama, Portal, and Duke Nukem. Booyah.

Go Green with the Handheld Green Laser FX

If you're familiar with ThinkGeek then you know we love green. And we're not talking about Eco-friendly green (although we like that, too) - we're talking about green frickin' laser beams attached to sharks, though we'll take them sharkless when we can get them. Green lasers are simply awesome and now we have a completely new way for you to enjoy them with our Handheld Green Laser FX. This little device projects swirling patterns of green laser circles and spirals sure to mesmerize any tech monkey. If you've been waiting for an easy way to "go green" then look no further.

Kids Keyboard and Mouse - Rugged & Right Sized

Kids Keyboard and Mouse - Rugged & Right Sized

Kids these days have more programming power in their interactive plush teddy bears than you had in your entire elementary school growing up. Our philosophy is to start 'em young with good tools, like these properly sized kid's keyboard and mice. The rugged ABS plastic keyboard has a QWERTY format and contains color coded keys to teach consonants vs. vowels as well as different colors for the control keys and numbers. It also has 7 external hot keys for easy Office program access. The optical mouse is smaller than the average mouse for those little fingers to grasp, and is as rugged as the keyboard. Don't be jealous that your kids have cooler stuff than you did, because their kids will be traveling the universe wearing warp speed Heelys.

Pacemaker Handheld DJ System - Look Ma... No Vinyl

The Pacemaker has turned traditional DJing on it's ear and left us dizzy with flat-out amazement. This is one of the coolest professional music gadgets we've ever seen. In a nutshell, it's two turntables in the palm of your hand, and some sophisticated computer software to back it up. The Pacemaker analyzes the beats per minute of every song you store on its internal 120GB disk. Then you can effortlessly beatmatch any two tracks with zero skill needed. Built-in timeshift means you can increase the speed of a track without increasing the pitch. Add in some amazing effects and you've got a live DJ mix going.

Cyber Clean Electronics Cleaning Putty - Assassinate Dirt and Grime

Computer keyboards, cell phones, digital cameras, they all attract dust and dirt like a magnet. We try to look the other way as our newfangled gadgets get dirtier and dirtier. After all, water and electronics aren't exactly good pals when it comes to washing. But now that we've discovered Cyber Clean Electronics Cleaning Putty, our gadgets and peripherals can look like new in seconds. Just smoosh the Cyber Clean putty into the cracks of your keyboard (for example) then peel it off. Instantly it picks up dirt and grime and is ready to go again.

FPS 3rd Space Gaming Vest - Full Impact Gaming Gear

Your fingers are fixed firmly on WASD. Your hand grips the mouse firmly yet gently. Sweat beads your forehead as your avatar crouches behind cover. Unfortunately, the first notice you get that there's somebody with a shotgun in your back is the "YOU DIED" text on the screen. Weaksauce. Flashing red indicators showing you got hit doesn't help when you don't know where the shot came from. Now, you can enter 3rd space by donning this pneumatic gaming vest that pounds you in eight locations - front and back - when you take a hit. It's a totally immersive experience that includes a free copy of Call of Duty 2 for Windows. Supported by Rainbow 6, HL2, BioShock, FEAR, CoD4, Crysis and more!

Four New Books - Books of doom

Four New Books - Books of doom

No matter how you slice it, the world is coming to an end. "The Complete Manual of Things that Might Kill You" will teach you about the dangers you face in everyday life. 'But what about zombies?' you ask. Well, we have two tomes pertaining to them: "Zombie Haiku" (which chronicles the transformation of human to zombie - in haiku) and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" (a slight update of the Jane Austin classic). And if those aren't enough, then you need to grab "The Geeks' Guide to World Domination" and learn how to end the world by taking it over. Because everyone knows, the Geek shall inherit the Earth.

Hydrokinetic Adjustable Wrench - Fits any job

One thing we've learned over the years: there are many different sized nuts out there. And we're not talking folks with loose screws, we're talking nuts and bolts. We need a tool that can adjust to grip all those nuts, and the Hydrokinetic Adjustable Wrench is just what we've been looking for. The secret is its patented liquid-core. The two grip/pistons float on either end of the core. Push one in and the other pops out, tightening down on the bolt you are wrestling with (even if it's damaged) - it will fit 23 different sizes (metric and standard). Now that's a tool that can take on a world of nuts.

New Wacky Candy Category - Enjoy eating the weird

For years we've offered you the best in caffeinated candy, but many other fun candies have passed by the wayside. "No more!" we yell, as we premiere our new Wacky Candy cateogry. And boy do we have some wacky fun for you to cram in your mouth. Like mints? Well, then suck on banana flavored Monkey Mints or Nihilist Mints, which have no flavor at all. Prefer gummy yummies? Then you'll love our Gummy Maggots and Gummy Bacon. And for the sick freak in you, chug down some Sour Candy Body Fluids - liquid cherry blood or liquid lemonade urine. Just like momma used to make!

Robo-Q Tiny R/C Robots - We Welcome Our New Mini Robot Overlords

Here at ThinkGeek we don't discriminate when it comes to robots. Robotic arms, rovers, R2-D2, shiny futuristic robots or old steampunk style robots... we love them all. But when we saw these miniscule Robo-Q robots from Japan it was pure robo-technolust at first sight. Not only are these the smallest walking robots we've ever seen, they have fully autonomous modes that allows them to avoid obstacles or chase after the included soccer ball. Of course you can also take full control with the included remote, but watch out for the inevitable robot revolt.
