Timmy's rescued!

We're happy to report that Picard and his crew were able to take down the evil Kirk and rescue Timmy from the Claw Game machine in our lobby. And it's a good thing too, since Timmy is coming with us to New York City for our Wired Store field trip and geektacular tweetup at Barcade Brooklyn this weekend. Will you be there? The only acceptable answers are: "YES!" or "No, because I'll be at home cooking my favorite Asian dishes and awaiting the arrival of my Star Wars Chop Sabers." Choose wisely, geek friends.

Star Wars Chop Sabers: Deftly maneuver your food with the power of the force!

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

New Shirts Released - Not all black!

This week's shirts are all more than what they seem at first glance. Improbable? *poof* We've just turned into a bowl of petunias to introduce the first shirt, which we're calling Fail Whale. Comes in a babydoll. In both a babydoll and a unisex version, we have a beautiful shirt with a silver unicorn on it, which, despite appearances, is not about origami. Those join four other new offerings: a shirt with the words Grue Repellent on it (which is also a lantern you don't have to get or light), one that has a deep dish math offering, one with a guy climbing a train that has nothing to do with railroads, and one with a puzzle that upon further inspection reveals its true secret. We'll give you a hint. It starts off "Up Up Down Down...."
$15.99 - $18.99

Mag Pix 1080p HD Mini Camcorder - 1080p HD video in your pocket

If your images were on you'd see Mag Pix 1080p HD Mini Camcorder - 1080p HD video in your pocket

When it comes to high definition video, not all mini camcorders are created equal. Just a few years ago we would have been very excited to shoot at anything better than 640 x 480 resolution. Now that HD and widescreen video is the new standard we're pretty jaded when it comes to the various flavors of HD. 720p... we scoff at it. 1080i... who uses that these days? But full 1080p widescreen with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, now you've got our interest. The Mag Pix shoots 1080p HD video and has a mini HDMI port on the side to boot. $169.99

Luxeed U5 Dynamic Pixel Keyboard - Customizable keyboard illumination

If your images were on you'd see Luxeed U5 Dynamic Pixel Keyboard - Customizable keyboard illumination

With 430 LEDs the Luxeed is capable of individually lighting each key in your choice of color. What's more, it can do some amazing tricks like an animated rainbow across all the keys, or make each key light when you press it. This new U5 version of the Luxeed requires no drivers and works on any operating system. You get four "preset" buttons above the arrow keys you can use to instantly choose between different customizable lit skin presets. Set up a glowing skin for your favorite game with different colors to indicate each key action, or create illuminated patterns and designs. $139.99 - $149.99

Handheld Night Vision Digital Video Camera - Darkness-proof

If your images were on you'd see Handheld Night Vision Digital Video Camera - Darkness-proof

As you know, everything cool happens at night. That's why most geeks aren't morning people--well, other than "wee hours of the morning" people. But the problem with your everyday video camera is that it doesn't record too well in darkness... unless you enjoy watching dark shadows and trying to guess which amorphous blob is which. The NightVision Digital Video Camera uses infrared illumination, letting you see up to 40 feet in absolute darkness and capture it all for posterity, or your legal defense. $99.99

Star Trek Illuminated Shirt - Latest wearable Federation tech

Star Trek has always been an innovator when it comes to sci-fi technology: warp drives, transporters, tricorders, phasers, and dilithium crystals to name but a few. But one thing missing from Federation tech is glowing animated shirts featuring the Enterprise. These Star Trek Illuminated Shirts fit the bill perfectly and are available for purchase on your home planet. We imagine Scotty would bring back some of these stylish shirts to the Enterprise while on shore leave in an Aberdeen pub. Eventually the shirts would start multiplying on their own and take over the ship. $39.99

If your images were on you'd see Green Gadget Charging Station - Help your gadgets get greener

What can they do to reduce their carbon footprint? It's the Green Gadget Charging Station to the rescue with a simple improvement: "Don't charge any more when you're already charged." Plug in a gaggle of gadgets to this handy charger using the 13 different included connectors. Your gadgets begin to charge, and the Green Gadget Station cuts off the juice when it senses they're full and ready to go. $59.99

Dice Mirror Illusion - Beware the doppelganger mirror world

We like our magic easy to perform and amazing to watch, and the Dice Mirror Illusion delivers in spades. It's a simple idea, really: place an ordinary dice on top of a mirror. In real life, the dice has black and red spots like any good dice should, but in the reflection it has no spots. Turn the dice, move it around, still no spots. It's the damnedest thing and the effect works with no effort on your part. What's more, flip the dice over and suddenly it has no spots in real life, and spots in the doppelganger mirror world. Crazy we know, but damn amazing. $27.99

Weighted Companion Cube Plush - Please love it

If your images were on you'd see Weighted Companion Cube Plush - Please love it

Straight from the Vital Apparatus Vent comes the Weighted Companion Cube Plush. It will accompany you through the test chamber and generally be adorable and squishy. We expect you will take care of it while it is in your possession. The Enrichment Center reminds you that the Weighted Companion Cube Plush cannot speak, threaten you, or stab you. (That paranoia you feel is totally normal.) In the event that the Weighted Companion Cube does speak, we urge you to disregard its advice, especially if said advice pertains to the veracity of cake. $29.99

StealthSwitch II - Control the world with your feet!

If your images were on you'd see StealthSwitch II - Control the world with your feet!

The original StealthSwitch ushered in an era of office slacking unprecedented in our lifetimes. The concept is simple. Playing on your laptop instead of working and your boss comes over? A click of the discreet footswitch instantly hides whatever window you were working in. Now the new StealthSwitch II allows you to run macros, hit keys, click the mouse, and more--all at the touch of your foot. And you can even buy up to 4 slave switches and assign one to each function. Pretty soon you'll be able to skip your hands and run everything with your feet like some kind of geeky simian.
