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

Dear Mayors of ThinkGeek,

Thanks for checking in! Today is the dorkiest AND best day ever. For starters, it's Embrace Your Geekness Day. We don't know about you, but we wear our geek on the outside. Also, self-hugging is skeevy. We prefer to use today to celebrate the birthday of Sir Patrick Stewart, the only bald guy who can look sexy and powerful while wearing a jumpsuit.

Since we can't raise a glass of synthehol in his honor (yet!), we'll just use these bottles of beer our new robot opened. Happy Birthday, Jean-Luc!

Straight from a friendly robot company in Tijuana, we bring you the BeerBot Bottle Opening Shirt. This slightly inebriated robot forgot about the Three Laws six beers ago, but he'll gladly help you pop the top of your brewski.

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

Star Trek Limited Edition Watch - So you can boldly go

If your images were on you'd see Star Trek Limited Edition Watch - So you can boldly go

When cold-starting anti-matter engines, or zipping around a gravity well at warp speed, you can find yourself in time warp. Make sure you've got an accurate--and incredibly stylish--timepiece on your wrist, just in case you get lost somewhere in time! This watch is self-winding, so it never needs batteries and it's a limited edition--only 1701 units will be made!

Lego Minifigures, Series One - Which will you get?

Everyone needs a little mystery. And a lot of LEGO stuff. Why not combine both and snag yourself a few of these LEGO minifigure grab bags? Each bag contains one random minifig, accessory, display stand, and collection leaflet. This collection includes: Demolition Dummy, Forestman, Cowboy, Super Wrestler, Zombie, Ninja, Cheerleader, Skater, Tribal Hunter, Circus Clown, Magician, Deep Sea Diver, Robot, Nurse, Caveman and Spaceman. The bags are opaque, so no matter how much you slip our monkey robots at the warehouse, they can't figure out which bag is which. (Though bribes are always welcome, even if they are ineffective.)

Cookie Misfortune Evil Fortune Cookies - Mean, cruel, tasty, and funny

Time to tell people what you really think of them, without getting into trouble. It's simple: just replace their fortune cookie (when they're not looking, of course) with one of these. These fortune cookies have the funniest, most depressing, and sometimes downright rudest fortunes you'll ever see. Just make sure you have a camera ready to capture their reaction, as it will be priceless. Or, if you really want to see some fireworks, replace the cookies of people you don't know. But be safe, because though we love you, we're not bailing you out of jail.

Rock Paper Lizard Spock iPhone case - Beats every other case

If your images were on you'd see Rock Paper Lizard Spock iPhone case - Beats every other case

Even with all our technology, it's still hard to decide who picks the day's lunching location. Not only must we check out reviews on Urban Spoon and Yelp, we need to take into account whether or not we REALLY want to be the Mayor of Uncle Greasy's Taco Hut. (Again.) Take the decision out of your hands. By using your hands. D'oh. Flip your iPhone over and challenge your lunchmate(s) to a rousing game of Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock. Oh, and don't forget that Sheldon WILL lecture you if you ask for chopsticks at the Thai place. Best use a fork. For iPhone 3G and 3Gs.

Star Wars Belt Buckles - Holding up your pants in a galaxy far far away

It's Casual Friday on the Imperial Star Destroyer Devastator. On the bridge, the officers wear blue jeans and Hawai'ian shirts. After 5pm, Lord Vader pulls out his platters and lays down a phat beat. Even the Dark Lord of the Sith is dressing down: in lieu of his drab metallic plastic belt buckle, he's opted for the stylish polished chrome symbol of the Empire instead. Meanwhile, in the Outer Rim, Lando's sporting his own shiny Rebel belt buckle. See, it's not the Force that holds up your pants, light-side or dark-side. You need a belt. You can have your special edition buckle, too. You just have to choose a side.

USB to SATA/IDE Combo Kit - Don't go without one

If your images were on you'd see USB to SATA/IDE Combo Kit - Don't go without one

Let's face it--computer geeks collect files. Many of them large, some of them illicit, and perhaps even one or two illegal. Hey, we're not here to judge; we're here to help! Those files often live on hard drives that occasionally get upgraded. The old drive gets ripped out in favor of the new in the never-ending effort to increase storage capacity. That doesn't mean that those old drives have outlived their usefulness. Dock just about any of those old drives into this simple device. Now your old drives have a brand new life. Or, if you're the handy type, you can keep this one device handy to recover data from a drive in a dead computer. You won't have to haul several different devices--just this one!

Duct Tape Goodies - Is there anything it can't do?

Duct tape is amazing. It's been on the moon with Apollo, built into sailing vessels, and used to span gorges. Oh, and it can also bind things together. At ThinkGeek, we worship the stuff, so we collected some of the more wondrous applications for you! First, the Duct Tape Tie so you can dress up for clients without losing your own sense of style. Next is a mug that looks like a messy wad of duct tape, but is really a sturdy ceramic creation. Finally, to round it all off, the world-famous Nashua 357 spool of duct tape--the very same the Mythbusters themselves use!

Gravity Activated Flip Mill - One-handed salt and pepper grinder

If you're at all a foodie, you know salt and pepper are critically important, and you also know the best salt and pepper are ground right at the time of needing it. Hand grinders are fine, but when one hand is stirring, or holding a hot pot, grinding with just one hand is impossible. Our grinders use a gravity activated switch to activate an electric grinder, so all you have to do is turn the mill over, and get the freshest ground pepper and milled salt possible, and all in a one-handed operation to boot! Kitchen tech, FTW!

MamaRoo Bouncer - The smart baby's bouncer

If your images were on you'd see MamaRoo Bouncer - The smart baby's bouncer

The MamaRoo Bouncer is the ultimate bouncer for developing the geek in your new baby. Begone, days of bouncers that only bounce! The MamaRoo moves in five different ways: car ride, kangaroo, tree swing, rock-a-bye, and ocean. Three plush balls in the mobile are decorated in the style of Van Gogh, Monet, and Seurat to engage the wee creative brain. Nature sounds are built-in for baby soothing, but you can hook your mp3 player to your MamaRoo if your baby prefers to rock out to L. Hadron and the Colliders.

Mechanical Kitty Coin Bank - I can has money for cheezburger?

Kittehs, they're devious. They have been plotting ways to get a cheezburger and since stealing one at the 4th of July party didn't work, they've come up with a new plan. Kitteh will hide in Japanese box. When dumb hooman puts a coin on the fishy food bowl on top of the box, kitteh will pop out, snatch coin, go back into box, meow cute-liek, count money silently. As hooman cannot resist the feedback, hooman will put coin after coin on the food bowl to watch the kitteh pop out and snatch it. Eventually, enough coin for cheezburger will be achieved. Win!

Twist Equation Alarm Clock - Do math or it won't stop

If your images were on you'd see Twist Equation Alarm Clock - Do math or it won't stop

This clock cracks us up. It's really just plain mean, and here's why: when the alarm goes off, one screen displays an operator (plus or minus sign) and the other screen displays the mathematical answer. What you have to do now to silence the alarm is rotate the two numerical wheels so the equation makes sense. Only then will the alarm stop chirping. See? You have to do math in order to turn the alarm off, and that's more than enough to wake you up in the morning. Eight minus four equals on time for work!

Texthook - Texting, talking, or emailing while stroller-ing

While smartphones are indeed smart and amazing, they're really hard to operate with only one hand, especially when you're on the go with your wee geek in tow. The TextHook is the ultimate smartphone holder for the geek parent's active lifestyle. It tightly secures your smartphone while giving you full access to its touchscreen or keyboard. With the touch of a finger, you can be texting, talking, or emailing while pushing your stroller (or riding your bicycle, for that matter). Its easy strap-on design makes it a snap to secure it to the handlebar of your stroller, exercise equipment, shopping cart, or bike. It's lightweight and durable, so you can attach and remove it many times throughout your busy days. Simply slide your smartphone into the TextHook and it will be secure for whatever adventures you and your geekling have during stroller time.

iCooly iPhone/iPad Brush Stylus - Retire your stubby finger

If your images were on you'd see iCooly iPhone/iPad Brush Stylus - Retire your stubby finger

Who would have thunk that a brush is the best way to control the capacitive touch display on your iPhone or iPad? Turns out that the special iCooly Brush Stylus mimics your stubby finger perfectly, except with much more accuracy. Finally you get full detailed control over all your favorite apps. The iCooly is great for accurate typing on the iPhone and perfect for drawing apps on the iPad. What's more, the brush retracts into the stylus at the push of a button. Just try and get your finger to do that.
