Thought I’d offer a new spin on those classic McDonald’s Halloween pails: safety lights for Trick-or-Treaters. These tiny lights could be clipped to shoes, lanyards, wrist bands, or anywhere really. Read the rest of this entry
As you probably know, geeks enjoy going to the beach so they can kick sand at helpless muscleheads, because we need to assert our dominance constantly. All of the taunting and bullying can make a geek thirsty, so it’s imperative to keep cold beverages nearby. With that dilemma in mind, I give you: the Sandcrawler cooler!
Thought I’d design a fun fridge that looks and works like a vending machine. This would be ideal for any soda or beer company theme (Coke, Nuka-Cola, Duff Beer), but for this post I figured Futurama’s Slurm would be best. Read the rest of this entry
Remember in the 80’s there was this promise of household robots could head to the fridge and fetch a few drinks for its thirsty owners? This opener would sort of fulfill that pipe dream by having a robot assist with opening a beer bottle. Progress!
There would be no robotics involved, just a bottle opener molded into the shape of Nintendo’s famous peripheral. R.O.B. himself would split in two, his lower base serving as a display stand with a magnet holder.
R.O.B. was completely useless as a video game peripheral, but as a bottle opener? I can think of no greater calling.
A few weeks ago Adventure Time featured some “Canadian Maple Syrup” guards (they hail from the Breakfast Kingdom), and as a Canadian I thought they were hilarious. I mean, they were standing on guard fer crêpes sake.
Anyways I think it would be awesome if a maple syrup company produced a collectors bottle to look like this character. Granted, the dude is a throwaway gag, but I still want one.
I was in my neighborhood Staples recently (What? Even us lowly bloggers need practical office solutions), when I saw their famous Easy Button gag gift, which is a button that serves no function. So I thought if I wanted a geeky non-functioning button on my desk, it would be the Independent Thought Alarm from The Simpsons.
Sure it could be wired up to something or make a buzz sound when pressed, but I’d be happy with a plain trinket that I’d park on my desk. I feel it would be a hit with teachers and other people in positions of authority (bosses or supervisors).
