T-Shirts & Apparel Geek Toys Electronics Gadgets Computer Stuff Caffeine & Edibles What's New OMGWTFUN! Clearance

Friends of the Rebellion,

What a day for geek kind. We are so happy to have your full attention. Seriously. We are just amazed that you've been able to get off the couch to come up for air with Modern Warfare 2 in your possession. We here at ThinkGeek Psionics™ are predicting a wave of worker bees calling in sick to the office or skipping classes which will last approximately 3-4 days. There is no known vaccine and we are afraid it's highly contagious. There is an antidote, however. You see, we've just shipped our first herd of Tauntaun sleeping bags from the frozen tundras of our Hoth factories, and they're available to pre-order in limited quantities! Placing your pre-order now will distract you from the soul-sucking whirlpool that is MW2...

Tauntaun now preordering!

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

Rubik's Touch Cube - Maddening, intelligent, self-solvable

If your images were on you'd see Rubik's Touch Cube - Maddening, intelligent, self-solvable

When Erno Rubik first designed his famous puzzle cube way back in the previous century, he couldn't have possibly imagined the incredible variation of puzzles that would arise--nor did he envision electronic versions like this bad boy right here, replacing the spinners and plastic cube pieces with touch-sensitive LED panels and sophisticated logic circuits. Not good as good at it as your speed-cube champion buddy? Get hints along the way to solving with a built-in assistance function! Give up completely? Press a button and watch the cube solve itself. The WoPR started out just playing chess; could this be the birth of Skynet?

LEGO MP3 Player and Digital Camera - Brick technology to the max

Time to build King LEGO a new castle. But this time he's made some huge demands. He not only wants music in the castle, but he wants a way to spy on people coming in the main gate. Sounds hard--unless you have a LEGO MP3 Player and Digital Camera. Both are colorful, fully functional, and since they're actual LEGO branded products, they can stack and be used to build structures just like normal LEGOs. So keep track of Baron NoKnees as he plots against the king, and have photographic proof when you inform the king of his wrong doings. Then crank up the tunes as the Baron is beheaded. Huzzah!

Lilliput Mini USB Monitor - Diminutive display feeds your inner Gulliver

If your images were on you'd see Lilliput Mini USB Monitor - Diminutive display feeds your inner Gulliver

Looking for that extra bit of screen real estate to get you through the busy workday? Problem is, an entire secondary monitor comes with its own needs like a separate power or an additional video card. The Lilliput Mini USB Monitor changes this equation completely. A single USB connection from your computer gets you an instant high-resolution secondary display perfect for your IM client, widgets, PC gaming tools, your email, a spreadsheet, your PhotoShop tools, or even video. Oh... and the $99 price won't make your main monitor too jealous.

The Bolt Interactive Pet Laser Toy - Can has lazor?

Cats are fond of many things: climbing inside of boxes, shredding paper and fabric, suddenly darting across a room for no apparent reason, and appearing aloof. They also love to chase string, ribbons, and especially laser beam dots. We can't imagine there's any evolutionary reason for this--perhaps it was an ancient race of aliens visiting the Earth that gave felines an affinity for chasing laser beams. Who knows? But if this is the case, they probably had something very similar to the Bolt Interactive Pet Laser Toy. It's a sophisticated piece of feline-laser technology that your cat will love.

Phase 1: Collect Apparel / Phase 2: ? / Phase 3: Profit

If your images were on you'd see Phase 1: Collect Apparel / Phase 2: ? / Phase 3: Profit

To-do lists seem to get longer this time of year. Here's a few more tasks to add to yours. Try out the da Vinci/transforming robot crossover we like to call Vitruvian Voltron. Teach people across the 'verse the necessary phrases for getting by in a foreign language with Speaking Chinese (also comes in a babydoll). Preach the truth: Humans suck. Oh, and if you need a new Tux for the holiday party, you can totally cross that one off your list. We got him right here for men and ladies. Everybody loves a penguin.

Celestron Digital & Optical Microscope - Capture tiny, tiny video

As a geek you are very aware that objects in the universe can be large--very large. There are things floating around out in space that are absolutely daunting in their size. Equally amazing is the tiny scale of incredibly small particles and sub-particles. Just as the telescope helps us see large objects in space, the Celestron Digital & Optical Microscope lets us see the tiny things all around us, either via USB connection to your computer or by regular optical viewing. It allows you to capture snapshots or video and has built-in LEDs for illumination.

Halo R/C Warthog - Best R/C vehicle this side of the Outer Colonies

If your images were on you'd see Halo R/C Warthog - Best R/C vehicle this side of the Outer Colonies

When cruising the Halo megastructure and blasting the Covenant into oblivion, no vehicle is more useful than the Warthog. As Cortana will be happy to inform you, the Warthog is a multi-function jeep with a LAAG turret mounted on the back. It has enough room for a driver, machine gunner, and one additional passenger. Now you can collect your own mini R/C version of the Halo Warthog complete with action figures and gun turret. Make good use of it during long office meetings when you suddenly realize the CEO has been terminally infected by the Flood.

Star Wars 4GB Flash Drives - Hold your files they will

If your images were on you'd see Star Wars 4GB Flash Drives - Hold your files they will

In Star Trek land, data is stored on isolinear chips and rods and stuff. But what do they use in Star Wars land? Well, that's easy. They use flash drives that look like people they know or respect. Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Yoda, and the Storm Trooper that hit his head--all these folks are immortalized in space-age plastic. Just pull off their heads and plug them in for 4GB of storage--all Republic approved. This is the same sort of storage (we hear) that the ill-fated Rebel operative used to smuggle out Death Star plans. You can use yours to hold your precious documents, too.

Back to the Future Lights and Sound DeLorean - Doesn't need roads

If your images were on you'd see <i>Back to the Future</i> Lights and Sound DeLorean - Doesn't need roads

This is the car we've wanted for over 20 years. Of course the souped-up DeLorean that Doc Brown built was awesome to begin with. But once we saw it fly off at the end of BTTF, we just had to have one. And now we can. With movie-accurate lights and sounds (even a tiny Flux Capacitor and Mr. Fusion), this 1/15th scale DeLorean's got it all. It even has wheels that fold up for take off! Best of all, because it has opening gull-wing doors, you can put 3.75" action figures in it. Just think, Darth Vader and the Baroness can finally go on a date in Ancient Rome! Gotta get back in time, ya know.

Otto Plush Animal Bag - Feed it your other plush

Let's face it. Plush creatures are cute. But what if you have so many around your house that you can't see the floor anymore? Of course, you could always tell your kids (or spouse) to pick up after themselves. Or you just get one of these plush plush-bags. Each one has large mesh windows so you can see what's inside. Basically, the Otto Plush Animal Bag is a plush monster that likes to eat other plush and keep them alive in its gastric bag, learning from them. Like the Sarlacc pit, but for plushies. And that is a pretty sick and twisted idea if you ask us. Sick and twisted... and awesome.

Make Your Own Snowman World Kit - Build a winter wonderland

If your images were on you'd see Make Your Own Snowman World Kit - Build a winter wonderland

There are two types of people in the world: those who like snow on the outside of their buildings and those who like it on the inside. For those of you who like snow inside, it's time to grow your own. Using a variety of polymer technologies, you'll get 3 different types of fake snow to play with: fluffy snow for setting the scene, dense snow for building your snowguys and gals, and balls and cubes (same type of snow, different shapes) which absorb water and grow big and squishy. And the best part is, unlike real snow, you can let most of this stuff dry out--and then use it again. We call that Re-Snowing.
