Happy Holidays 2003
Pecan pie, mashed potatoes & roast turkey with a rich caffeinated gravy.
Ahhh...the holiday season is upon us. And, just like Mario to King Bowser
Koopa, we shall rise and greet! Unlike Mario however, we cannot do triple
jumps and butt stomps without endangering the integrity of our limbs. So
instead we'll just sit in front of our multi-headed LCD's and type furiously.
Welcome to the holiday onslaught of cool gifts for the technology-minded.
Whether you're buying gifts for somebody geeky, or making a wishlist for
yourself, we're here to help make this a happy and techie holiday season!
The James Bond 007 Spy Camera
Gadget lovers rejoice!
Cleverly tucked away inside an inconspicuous Zippo-style case lies the first
officially licensed 007 digital camera, clearly designed with stealth in
mind. Sneak a quick pic, capture important conversations in an audio or
video file, or even perform remote surveillance by leaving your camera
behind to take shots at preset intervals ranging from 1 to 90 minutes! It's
as close as you'll come to serving on Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Exclusively available in the U.S. at ThinkGeek!

2004 Despair, Inc Calendars Are Here!! 2 Different Versions
The only calendar that guarantees you'll increase your success by lowering
your expectations. ThinkGeek is as happy as management on a downsizing
spree to be shipping out the 2004 Despair, Inc. Calendars. Available in both
'New' & 'Classic' editions! Featuring gems like 'Teamwork: A Few Harmless
Flakes Working Together Can Unleash An Avalanche Of Destruction' and
'Achievement: You Can Do Anything You Set Your Mind To When You Have Vision,
Determination, And An Endless Supply Of Cheap Labor.' Hahaha, oh so true:
Unique Green-Red Laser Pointer
Many people have a red laser pointer, and some even niftier people have the
green laser variety. But very few people have them both built into a single
unit! So be sure to grab *the first* laser pointer that projects a brilliant
GREEN beam from one end and a high-power RED beam from the other end. The
GREEN beam is just as bright as other green pointers, range up to 2 miles in
darkness, wavelength 532 nm. The green laser beam (not just the dot) is
visible at night. The RED beam is the most powerful red laser allowed by the
FDA, range 4000 ft in darkness. Get illuminated here:
For the quadrillionth time, No I Will Not Fix Your Computer!
There is nothing more frustrating on this earth than constantly being asked
to help other people with their petty computer problems. Of course if your
job description dictates that you have to fix other people's computers, then
there is nothing so frustrating as being forced to do so ;) Let them know
how you really feel being pegged as the computer guy (or gal) and tell them
once and for all that you ain't gonna do it no more.
R/C Battle Tanks - Shoots Real Ammo!
Ever since we received a demo of this remote controlled ammo-firing tank at
our office - people have been wearing computer grey camouflage and engaging
in stealth sorties to the watering hole. That's because this 1/24th scale
full function remote controlled tank (turret moves sideways and up and down,
tank moves forwards, backwards and even spins!) can also shoot 6mm plastic
BB's up to 25 meters! That's a lot of firepower. This isn't exactly your
little brother's remote controlled tank, so make sure you use those goggles!
MEGA PC - Barebones PC With Mini Stereo System Functionality
The MEGA PC is a fully-functional Pentium 4 personal computer, with the dual
purpose of serving as a full featured mini stereo system. Its useful remote
control will allow you to listen to AM/FM radio or CDs (even MP3-filled
disks) once you've connected a pair of speakers and installed a CD-ROM or
DVD drive. Can we use both Mini and Mega in a single description? We think
so, check it out for yourselves:
Caffeine Candy Sampler v4.0
We know you pride yourself for being an independent thinker. We also know
that every once and awhile it's nice to take a break. So today, let
ThinkGeek do the thinking for you with version 4.0 of our caffeinated
candy sampler. With enough caffeine to power a Mars Rover, our candy
sampler will let you experience the more popular caffeinated candies we
carry without having to fork out a ton of cash. A great stocking stuffer
for that special geek in your life..
Midas Remote Control Watch
Okay, just how cool is a watch with a built-in universal remote control?
Well...pretty darn cool we think. Imagine the possibilities - you'll never
lose your remote again; you can go to your neighborhood sports bar and take
control of those big screen TVs; when visiting a friends house you can
watch what you want to watch. Put the power that comes with having the
remote right on your wrist!
Lian-Li Aquarium PC Case
There's no way to hide the wow factor of this Lian-Li PC case without
blindfolding everyone in the vicinity. Even the non-geeks who have seen
this case in action have been compelled to stop and take a look- It's
that cool. Your six plastic fish will come to life thanks to the included
blue cathode light and air pump, which together provide a very compelling
effect. A rear-mounted power switch allows you to turn off the cathode light,
which may prove to be the only way you can keep your eyes off this great case.
