WHAT'S NEW T-SHIRTS GEEK TOYS GADGETS CLEARANCE
Zombie Blast Energy Shots 12 Pack
Back-to-School Gift Bag

Is it that time already?

We cherish summer here at ThinkGeek, which is why we've waited as long as possible to use the dreaded three words: "Back to School." But the wheel of time turns, turns, turns, and soon Winter is coming, so we'd better buy new backpacks and stuff 'em with Tac Snacs, right? We think we have an awesome crop of school gear this year, whether you're sending your geekling to grade school, yourself to grad school, or anything in between.

What's New at ThinkGeek!

If your images were on you'd see Take $10 off - Fill your school inventory

Fill your personal inventory with the gear you need to pummel those evil teachers until they explode into coins! Actually, don't pummel your teachers; that's nearly always a bad idea, and besides, we've heard they explode and form more evil teachers, much like an Ochre Jelly. But you can still use code SKOOLSTUFF for $10 off $60+ orders, good through 11:59pm ET on 8/9/12.

iCrayon Capacitive Touch Stylus - Be a kid again

If your images were on you'd see iCrayon Capacitive Touch Stylus - Be a kid again

Just because geeks grow up doesn't mean they should put all childish things behind, like grabbing a crayon and drawing on stuff! The iCrayon capacitive touch stylus is perfect for the wee geek in all of us. Designed for touchscreens, this red crayon looks and feels like the real thing. It's perfect for drawing apps and games and great for keeping your greasy fingers off the screen with touch-typing.

TARDIS Book Light - Read with the Doctor

If your images were on you'd see TARDIS Book Light - Read with the Doctor

We can't get you a real TARDIS (at least not for a reasonable price), so we decided to get you this TARDIS Book Light instead. If you're reading in bed and don't want to disturb your partner or pet, just clip the TARDIS Book Light to your book and aim the TARDIS's light exactly where you need it. The TARDIS Book Light also comes with a UV pen so you can write secret notes to The Doctor that can only be read by the light of the TARDIS Book Light. It's perfect for people who hate to put visible marks on their books! Mmm. Secret marginalia.

Lies They Teach in School - Pants on fire!

If your images were on you'd see Lies They Teach in School - Pants on fire!

Here's how history works: something happens and someone sees it. Then they tell someone, adding bits to make it more exciting. Then that person writes it down, correcting grammar and adding more exciting bits. Then time passes and it gets messed up even more. And then we're taught it in schools. Alas, though, so much of what we're taught is actually incorrect. Time to set the record straight with reading! That's right, this book is packed with things that we were taught but weren't right. Time to learn our brains properly and instruct the newest batch of geeks in how awesome it is to learn new things.

Ivee Voice Activated Alarm Clock - Yell at your alarm clock

If your images were on you'd see Ivee Voice Activated Alarm Clock - Yell at your alarm clock

For kids going off to college, give them the gift that will get them to class on time. The Ivee Flex voice-activated alarm clock does just that. It responds to over 30 voice commands, including FM radio activation, say date and time, current indoor temperature, and the ever-popular "snooze." And with the giant 5" LED display, it's pretty hard to miss!

Toxic Waste Drum Laundry Basket - Ewwwww... laundry

If your images were on you'd see Toxic Waste Drum Laundry Basket - Ewwwww... laundry

This radioactive green bin isn't your mom's laundry basket! The Toxic Waste Drum laundry basket will keep those whiffy washings out of sight until laundry day! Great for dorm geeks or anyone who acts like they still live in a dorm. A great gift for kids going off to college or people you need to pester about doing their own clothes.

Box of Black-Wood Triangular Pencils - The coolest pencils ever

If your images were on you'd see Box of Black-Wood Triangular Pencils - The coolest pencils ever

Some people think pencils are boring. Obviously, they don't still pencil fight (almost a lost art form), but we'll admit sometimes pencils can be a little dull. That's why we flipped (a desk) when we saw these awesome pencils. First, the wood inside and the eraser are black. That's pretty awesome. Second, they are triangular. This means they cannot roll off your desk. Of course, they're also number 2 pencils, which means you can use them to destroy standardized tests. Well, you'll have to use your brain, too. But with your brain and these pencils, you can never lose!

Classic Camera Pencil Sharpener - Focus and sharpen

If your images were on you'd see Classic Camera Pencil Sharpener - Focus and sharpen

Anyone who loves old school graphite writing apparatuses (aka: pencils) knows they get dull and need sharpening. We wanted to find a really cool pencil sharpener because, well, that's what we do. And this one looks just like a classic camera from the classic days of camera-ing! The pencil goes in the top (with an extendable pencil support system) and you turn the crank in the back to sharpen. You can even adjust how sharp you want the pencil (a little dial moves the blade). Plus, pull out the bottom drawer to see all your pencil shavings all collected and ready for disposal (you can do whatever you like with those, but may we suggest squirrel wigs?). Say cheese!

Postertext Novels On A Wall - Look closely

If your images were on you'd see Postertext Novels On A Wall - Look closely

Looking for something geeky to spruce up that dorm room or college pad? With Postertext, you can hang classic novels on your wall! Choose from posters with the entire text of Flatland, The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Artfully turned into silhouettes depicting an memorable scene from your favorite stories, Postertext is a must-have for any literary geek!

3 in 1 Breakfast Station - Save space, eat breakfast!

If your images were on you'd see 3 in 1 Breakfast Station - Save space, eat breakfast!

This tiny appliance is barely bigger than a regular toaster, and yet crams three separate appliances in one! On one side, you have a coffee maker capable of making a couple cups of coffee. Next to it is a tiny personal toaster-oven, browning bread like a champ! Finally, and cleverly we might add, is a wee skillet that utilizes the waste heat from the toaster oven. Crack in a couple of eggs or lay a couple of strips of bacon on it, and you've got yourself a complete breakfast in a space no bigger than a pekingese.

AT-AT Plush Utility Bag - A ThinkGeek Exclusive

If your images were on you'd see AT-AT Plush Utility Bag - A ThinkGeek Exclusive

The AT-AT is a great troop carrier. Well, unless there are things it can trip over (ED-209 knows what we're talking about). BUT, it does the carrying part very well. So, why not apply the carrying part to your everyday life? This AT-AT Plush Utility Bag has everything you love about the SD Star Wars Plush Vehicle AT-AT - just bigger. The zippered cockpit can hold your little things (smartphone, lipstick, thermal detonator) and the main carrier pocket can hold your larger things (books, lunch, holocrons). Plus (and this is the best part), since it's a shoulder bag, you can hold the strap and make your AT-AT bag "walk." Pew pew!

Game of Thrones Posters - Long live the King(s)?

If your images were on you'd see Game of Thrones Posters - Long live the King(s)?

If you're a fan of A Song of Ice and Fire (or of the TV series A Game of Thrones), these two new posters are for you. Learn your geography without a Maester with the Map of Westeros. Hang it on the wall of your office or reading nook and you'll be able to follow the action as you read (and reread) all of George R. R. Martin's novels. If you're a fan of the Starks and their bannermen, The North Remembers is the poster for you. Remember, whether it's preparing for years of ice and cold or preparing to be betrayed by people you trusted, bloody times are always ahead.

Unleash the illumination of the Dark Side with the LEGO Darth Vader Desk Lamp. Study your evil schematics under the evil glow of his evil lightsaber, which contains no fewer than 12 evil LEDs. Position Vader's arms and legs in whatever configuration makes your evil heart swell with evil glee. You can even remove him from his evil stand if you require his evil a little further from his home base.

7-Eleven Slurpee - Slurpees at home!

If your images were on you'd see 7-Eleven Slurpee - Slurpees at home!

Until now, making a Slurpee at home was just too difficult. We had that Snoopy-themed shaved ice maker that involved Herculean strength to hand-grind ice cubes. It certainly wasn't easy, or very kid-friendly. (It also wasn't a Slurpee.) But now, we have a 7-Eleven-endorsed Slurpee Machine! Make your own Slurpees with your favorite juice or sugary soft drink. Just turn the crank and watch in amazement as freshly frozen Slurpee pours into your cup, ready to refresh you and give you the sugar high you so desperately need.

School Jewels - Accessorize your brain

If your images were on you'd see School Jewels - Accessorize your brain

Add some bling to your fall semester with these new jewelry pieces. First we have a Rutherford-Bohr Model Atom Necklace for a simple statement of science-love. For some reason we hear lyrics when we look at this: "Our whole universe was in a hot, dense state...." Moving on. Then we have earring versions of our popular pendants: DNA, Pi, Möbius, and the Golden Ratio. A little something for everyone. Smart: it looks good on you.

Battlestar Galactica Flash Drive - 3...2...1... JUMP!

If your images were on you'd see Battlestar Galactica Flash Drive - 3...2...1... JUMP!

Some of the most tense moments early on in the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica involved the jump drive. While the FTL allowed faster-than-light movement, spinning it up always seemed to take an eternity when the Cylons were in hot pursuit. But the old girl always made it, often at the very last second. Jump your files from place to place with the Battlestar Galactica Flash Drive. It won't be faster than light, but definitely at speeds ranging from walking to flight, depending on how you travel the Earth. So say we all!

Noteboard Foldable Pocket Whiteboard - Fold yer notes

If your images were on you'd see Noteboard Foldable Pocket Whiteboard - Fold yer notes

Imagine this: your study group gets together in the library and you sit down around a table to discuss your upcoming project. You all have your books and notes and the brains start storming. But then you all want to write down these storms together - and a tablet is just too small for everyone to write on at once. But you are awesome, and pull out your Noteboard. It looks like a little stack of note cards, but quickly unfolds to cover up most of the table. And just like a whiteboard, you can all write and erase and re-write and get your project all planned out. Then, just fold up the Noteboard and slip it into your pocket. Quick, before the librarian shushes you again.

Kata Jumbo Rucksack - Defies the laws of physics

If your images were on you'd see Kata Jumbo Rucksack - Defies the laws of physics

This deceptively light bag has a surprise - it's actually huge. It's capable of carrying a 17" laptop with accessories, a library's worth of books, and every piece of portable electronics you own. It's got a transforming interior, giving you two huge chambers for carrying your stuff, or one gargantuan space big enough to store a flux capacitor, three soccer balls, or a small child (don't carry a small child in this bag, duh).To wrap it all up, literally, we've thrown in a large water-proof cover so you can make it across campus in the driving rain without decomposing your composition book. Bonus!

USB Toaster Hub and Thumbdrives - Delicious Data Storage

If your images were on you'd see USB Toaster Hub and Thumbdrives - Delicious Data Storage

Toast is awesome. It's just a universal fact. What's possibly more awesome than toast is massive amounts of storage in digital media form. The intersection of awesome toast and awesome data storage is right here! This USB hub, shaped like a teeny-weeny toaster works great with the accompanying teeny-weeny thumb drives shaped like toast! Warning: you're not going to want to eat them - we're talking about metaphorical deliciousness, here! Nor should you try and put real bread into the USB Hub. There lies disappointment.

Marshall Power Amp Laptop Bag - Not all musicians carry guitars

If your images were on you'd see Marshall Power Amp Laptop Bag - Not all musicians carry guitars

Today's musician doesn't have to strum chips of plastic past taught metal wires or amplify sound waves through a series of valves and tubes to make music. Now you can use your laptop! Carry your musical instrument like a musician! Our new laptop bags look like one of those classic Marshall amps, from the brass fastenings, all the way to a zipper pull that looks like a quarter-inch headphone jack, and finishing up with a headphone-port that leads from your media device in the bag's pocket right to your head. So, carry your favorite musical instrument in style!
