8-Bit Dynamic Life Pin Set

Invented at ThinkGeek

This product is no longer available

Unfortunately we don't carry this item anymore, but check out some other awesome products that your fellow smart masses bought!

You two make quite the pair

  • Interactive LED badges with "life" bar of hearts
  • When apart, a lone heart blinks
  • When together, all 6 hearts are illuminated

Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero, you die. For non-bitmap humans like us, keeping track of our health is more of a challenge. But luckily after extensive studies performed at our own GeekLabs, ThinkGeek World Domination HQ has determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Allow us to illustrate.

Buy this set of 8-Bit Dynamic Life Pins. Keep one for yourself. Gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, cat...). When you're not together, a single heart will blink on each of your badges. Sounds like you're in need of a recharge! But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the second badge and suddenly the hearts on both of your badges light up all the way! 6 hearts!? This person makes you feel full of life! Go too far astray from the source of your affections, and you'll drop back down. Got it?

Some of you have nice clothes and you might not want to put a pinhole in them (if, say, a bride and groom were wearing these). The badges have magnets on the back. Put the included metal plate on the other side of whatever you want to attach your badge to, and voila. No pins to worry about.
