Happy Ada Lovelace Day!

"We may say most aptly, that the Analytical Engine weaves algebraical patterns just as the Jacquard-loom weaves flowers and leaves." That's a quote from Ada Lovelace, the only daughter of poet Lord Byron, who, later on in this same paper, sets forth a series of calculations for Charles Babbage's (at this time) hypothetical machine, which are recognized as the very first computer program. Congratulate your local code weavers today on the beauty of their work.

Half Life 2 & Left 4 Dead Collectibles - Statement statues

If your images were on you'd see Half Life 2 & Left 4 Dead Collectibles - Statement statues

Right, so it's time to break out the ol' wish list. Tell your friends and family you don't want a beef stick from Hickory Farms or an Edible Arrangement again this year. You want a limited-edition, collectible figure from your favorite video game. Both standing over 2 feet tall, these poly-stone statues are statement pieces. Something you might put on your mantel - if that's your sort of thing. Choose the limited or exclusive edition of the Left 4 Dead 2 Tank or the Half-Life 2 Headcrab Zombie, both with hand-painted gore, cause that's how they roll.

New Video Game Board Games - The game never stops!

If your images were on you'd see New Video Game Board Games - The game never stops!

When we turn off our console or computer, the game never stops. It churns in our head and forces us to continuously ponder what we've played. And now the game doesn't have to stop at all, with these two video game board games. First, enjoy playing as the Vox Populi or the Founders as you fight for control of Columbia in Bioshock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia. Yup, this is the battle that was raging all around as you played Booker in video game. Perhaps you just want to fight with your brains. In that case, you need World of Warcraft Trivial Pursuit. Show your knowledge of WoW lore, characters, geography, and more! All this while you travel the board using baby Murloc pieces. Of course, we recommend getting both - that way the game will never end and you'll become one with the Matrix. Or something.

Bird Photo Booth - Say "cheeps!"

If your images were on you'd see Bird Photo Booth - Say cheeps!

It's hard to get quality photos of wildlife. It generally requires lots of patience and a telephoto lens. What if we told you that you could get high-quality photos from the comfort of your couch with your current iPhone? The Bird Photo Booth houses your iPhone, GoPro camera, or iPod Touch mere inches from your subject and comes with a macro lens to take stunning photos when you choose. Plus, it'd also be great Cat TV. Load the feed from the camera on your iPad and watch kitty's eyes get beeg while the birds eat safely out of reach.

Arwen's Evenstar Pendant - A white gem like a star

If your images were on you'd see Arwen's Evenstar Pendant - A white gem like a star

Geeks are very particular about our symbolism, so sometimes giving geek jewelry gets complicated. This piece is intricate itself, but the giving is rather simple. Do you need to pledge your undying love for someone, Lord-of-the-Rings-style? This'll do it. Give it to your Arwen or your Aragorn, or if you identify with one of them, get it for yourself. Maybe one day you'll give it to someone you hold dear. Until then, it's yours to enjoy.

Exclusive Wooden Catapult Kit - Thing flinger

If your images were on you'd see Exclusive Wooden Catapult Kit - Thing flinger

This is an onager. An onager is a wild donkey. The Ancient Romans called this catapult-style an onager because when it fires, the arm smashes into a special stop, which causes the entire onager to buck like a donkey. Also, they used to throw donkeys at people. Not really; we just made that up. But you will enjoy pretending you're in Ancient Rome as you build your very own catapult and then use it to lob wooden balls (included) and paper wads (not included) at various things. And this onager ain't just a pretty face - it can shoot over 20 feet! Brawn and beauty all rolled into one. We're in love.

OSM: Spatial Manipulation Toy - Infinite turns

If your images were on you'd see OSM: Spatial Manipulation Toy - Infinite turns

The OSM (pronounced "awesome") is a rather curious little thing. Composed of six disks joined together, it turns in on itself with just a little bit of effort. It's like twiddling your thumbs one handed, but with a weird kaleidoscopic effect. And since the discs can separate (and it does come in two colors), you can take them apart and make your own pattern of six. Or, combine them in endlessly long and crazy ways because it just feels good to play with an object for spatial manipulation. Wait, did you see that? Object for Spatial Manipulation... OSM. Mind = blown.

Insta-Sky Office Light Diffusers - Add outside to your inside

If your images were on you'd see Insta-Sky Office Light Diffusers - Add outside to your inside

Look above you. If you're like most people, above you are fluorescent lights in a rectangular fixture. Evil, dull, and mind numbing. That's why you need to get some of these Insta-Sky Office Light Diffusers. Slip them into your lights (they hide between the cover and the bulbs) and instantly your boring light now looks like clouds. Or stars. Each diffuser sheet is a bit oversized to fit a wide range of light fixtures (just trim to fit). Why suffer another day in boring eyestrainland, when you can work below the clouds - or stars? Or get some of both and timescape your office into a day-zone and a night-zone. Night-zone is where we'd be. NAP TIME!
