ThinkGeek has always been one of the best sources for useful and not-so-useful doo-dads for the true geek and the people who love them. I’m particularly enamored with items like the Monty Python and Star Wars bobbleheads, the Shower Shock caffeinated soap, and the Midas Remote Control Watch (” Walk on down to the local bar and take control of those big screens”). The store has just announced the addition of six new products to its catalog. My personal favorites are the BuzzAire super-caffeinated oxygen inhaler (don’t mind me. it’s just a little asthma) and the Wireless Extension Cords. All I can say is FINALLY! I’m also very intrigued by the Sphorb. I can’t wait to get my hands on one.
Here’s how they describe the new items:USB Tanning Center ($24.99): Geeks are notoriously pale no more! With this easy-to-install UV light, anyone can achieve that deep, dark island tan without having to leave their desktop. BuzzAire™ ($12.99): For those who feel their double mocha latte with an extra shot of espresso just does not cut it any more, this device offers a quick blast of super-caffeinated oxygen for a buzz that no coffee can compete with. The Screened Sphorb™ ($39.99): In a recent survey conducted by ThinkGeek.com, 100 out of 100 people rated this as the number one product in the world. Unfortunately, words alone can not describe the greatness the Screened Sphorb™ possesses. Grow Your Own “1UP” Mushroom Kit ($9.99): Finally, Super Mario Brothers lovers can grow their own green and white polka dot mushroom. Who says you have to collect 100 coins to obtain an extra life? Wireless Extension Cords ($34.99): Tired of tripping over the tangled mess of wires from all your peripherals? These highly anticipated wireless extension cords provide power to any unit within 100 feet of any outlet. Users are seriously urged not to cross between transmitter and receiver. The iZilla ($499.99): The end all, be all of digital music players, the iZilla has two terabytes of memory, capable of storing over 600,000 songs in every available format. This handsome, white briefcase weighs just a touch over 30 pounds, is Bluetooth and Wi Fi enabled and runs on 16 ‘D’ batteries.
ThinkGeek must have also pulled some strings because they’re the first ones to have the long-awaited Sony PS3 in stock. Supplies are limited. Good luck.
