Justice Cap hides your identity from Big Brother

Posted in Apparel by Tam Yue on March 31st, 2014

Justice CapIt doesn’t matter if you are a celebrity who is being stalked by the paparazzi,  or you continuously feel like Big Brother is watching, or maybe you just hate having your picture taken. We found the perfect thing for you.

The Justice Cap looks like a normal baseball cap. The major difference is there is a built in set of high powered LED lights along the rim of the visor. These lights make it difficult for most cameras to capture your face in a video or on a digital camera. Used it at night and this hat works perfectly to black out your face. During the daylight hours, however, it will only be able to hide part of your face.

Watch their YouTube video to get an idea of the capabilities of this simple yet perfect way to hide your identity.

Nintendo Game Boy Tube Dress

Posted in Apparel by Reuben Drake on August 1st, 2011

Here’s a great dress for the geek girl in your life. These tube dresses will make you look like a life-size Nintendo Game Boy. Each dress is made from a jersey knit fabric, in colors that match the Nintendo Game Boy.

You even get the felt A/B buttons, as well as Start and Select, but you might get slapped if you get too button happy and touch the wrong area. It was actually sold yesterday, but Etsy shop HereandThereVintage will continue to offer some pretty cool clothing just like this one.

Electronic Rock Guitar Bag Plays Music

Posted in Apparel by Reuben Drake on July 28th, 2011

Most bags just hold stuff and that’s it. They do their job and nothing more. Well, ThinkGeek has a new offering that puts a playable instrument on it. It’s called the Electronic Rock Guitar Bag. The name says it all. This bag plays music.

The music plays through a little amplifier that you can hang on the front of the bag. How cool is that? The guitar is played by swiping your thumb across the strings on the bottom and you can make real chords on the neck. The bag has room for up to a 17-inch laptop and has two large pockets and six small pockets with a zippered phone pouch.

Thanko USB-powered necktie clip cooler

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on July 14th, 2011

Wearing a suit and tie in the office can make for a hot day, but with Thanko’s latest offering, you can cool down while wearing your monkey suit. The USB-powered necktie clip cooler is just $35. Sadly it’s only available to those in Japan though.

I guess the rest of us will just have to sweat a bit longer. The device is powered by either USB or a battery. Just clip it to your tie and it will send fresh air your way. This is basically just a computer fan mounted on your tie.

Mouse Belt Buckles

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on July 11th, 2011

A couple by the names of Holly and PJ have set up an Etsy shop in order to help pay for their wedding. So it’s simple, buy one of these dorky Mouse belt buckles and help them with their wedding. The hook mechanism is behind the mouse.

They come in both Mac and PC versions. You have to be a hardcore geek to pull these off though. If you are geek enough, they cost between $15 to $22 and it’s going to a good cause.

Inflatable Pillow Tie

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on June 13th, 2011

Working in the office can be tiring. If only you were wearing something that could inflate into a pillow. Well, you can. The pillow tie is a neck tie pillow. If you get tired just blow it up and lay your head down for a little nap.

Sure, it doesn’t look that great, but your nap is more important than looks. A tie is a tie, but being refreshed by taking a little siesta is priceless. Or in this case $19.99.

Qwerty Leather Wallet

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on May 26th, 2011

Here is a great gift for the geek in your life. You could always give it to yourself too. You’ve earned it. The QWERTY Leather Wallet puts your keyboard next to your cash.

You can practice your typing whenever you bring your wallet out to pay for something. Or pretend that you have to enter a super secret code just to open your wallet. It will have cashiers baffled. And keeping in the playful spirit, it even has the phrase “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” on the inside, which will remind you to step away from your actual keyboard more often.

Flashing Star Trek T-Shirt

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on May 26th, 2011

It says Star Trek. It flashes. That’s enough to get your geek wallet out right there. It comes with a white or yellow flashing image and there are even Star Trek Enterprise and Star Trek Voyager shirts available. They are 100% cotton and the battery pack comes away for washing it.

It requires a whopping 4 AAA Batteries which are hidden in the lining. Seems like there is no way that wearing 4 AAA batteries is going to be comfy, but then again, this is a Star Trek shirt that flashes. It could have a car battery attached and it would be cool.

Circuit board LED tie

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2011

We’ve seen cool circuit board patterned ties before, but this one is the coolest. Why? Because this one actually lights up. The lights almost make it seem like a real circuit board. Now if you could just add ram and upgrade the processor, it would be complete.

A great pair of light up cuff links would complete the look and make you entirely geek chic. Pretty awesome attire if you ask us. Hopefully it’s quality made and will last a while.

Circuit Board Neck Tie is Geek Chic

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on April 3rd, 2011

Nothing says geek like a circuit board and whether you are a programmer, or just a lover of all things electronic, your attire should reflect your personality. This circuit board tie is awesomely geek chic. You will look good while making other tech geeks jealous.

It was created by artist Michael Phipps and the circuit patterns are a combination of copper and metallic paint on a microfiber surface. It would go great with a Circuit board shirt, so you’ll just have to find one to complete the look.

Steampunk USB cufflinks

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on March 18th, 2011

Normally USB accessories don’t look so fashionable. I think these must be the coolest ones we’ve seen. These handmade cuffs are just the right amount of steampunk and each features 8GB of storage. I would wear these in a second.

However, like any other beautiful item, these are expensive. They will cost you $225. They are hand-carved and encased in walnut. Better start saving so you can wear these to your next big occasion.

Star Trek Bathrobes

Posted in Apparel by Reuben Drake on February 23rd, 2011

I’m not one for robes,but if I did wear them, I would definitely own this. These terrycloth robes were never seen on the show, but they should have been. They look geek-a-licious. These robes are available in both Command Yellow and Science officer Blue.

They even and have the appropriate rank and insignias. They’re available from ThinkGeek for $49.99. They look very comfortable and very geeky. Just don’t wear these when you go out. Please. For your own sake.

emPower glasses can be charged for reading

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2011

emPower wants to change the way that you use your reading glasses. Now they will need to be charged. The emPower glasses have tiny batteries inside, which power microchips that are capable of turning extra reading power on and off as needed.

The idea is that these would phase out bifocals, which older people often need. These glasses will use liquid crystals to simulate the lower part of the lens in a pair of bifocals. The crystals can change how the lenses refract or bend light, similar to how standard glasses do this with different levels of thickness.

Zipz Shoes let you zip your shoes on and off

Posted in Foot Apparel by Conner Flynn on February 10th, 2011

Zips shoes make more sense than regular shoes. They are the world’s first and only interchangeable shoe system! They have the ability to interchange shoe components any way you want. The line has an impressive collection of patterns and styles for both the covers and the souls and you can change it all up with ease. Have shoes your way.

Heck, you could turn one pair of shoes into as many as you like. Just zip on and zip off different tops and bottoms to create the shoe you want to wear. Designwise you have a much better selection than with typical shoes. You’ll have to email about pricing but you can check out their catalog to see the entire line-up. They look pretty fun.
