Wi-Fi Sneakers are A Step in the Right Direction

Wi-Fi Sneakers are A Step in the Right Direction
These sneakers are fully functional hot spot finders. As you walk around town, an integrated display will let you know what the signal strength is on hot spots around you. The wearable Wi-Fi sneakers are named A Step in the Right Direction and were designed by mstrpln and Ubiq boutique.

The ASRD sneaker has an integrated wireless internet detection unit embedded under the flap of the left shoe. When the pressure sensitive insole is activated, the device scans the surrounding area for Wi-Fi signals and displays the result through LEDs so you can see it. Sure, geeks are going to love these, but aren’t there more convenient ways to find hot spots? Better yet, instead of trying to find hot spots with your shoes, maybe you should be trying to score with the ladies, Poindexter.

Star Wars Death Star wedding cake

Star Wars Death Star wedding cake
Once again we see what happens when you combine geekery with the bakery. We told you about the Atari cake, and the R2-D2 cake. Behold the Death Star wedding cake.

I have to say that it takes a special kind of woman to get onboard with the idea of having any kind of geek cake at her wedding. And symbollically, it’s right on target. After all, many guys would consider marriage to be the final run down the Death Star trench as she shoots a pair of lasers down the hole, blowing your space station to hell.

British Jedi master defeated by Darth Vader

Darth Vader
This really happened…And not in a galaxy far far away, but in England… Jedi Master Hehol, a hairdresser, who founded the first British Jedi church was giving a TV interview for a documentary, when suddenly a drunk Darth Vader wearing a garbage bag appeared and kicked his ass not with a lightsaber, but with a metal crutch.

I guess that says alot about free speech in the Empire these days. The Jedi Master was no match for the Dark Lord of the Sith and after Vader took care of the Jedi geek, he attacked the TV crew and a hairdresser.

Official Rubik’s Cube speed cubing kit

Rubik’s Cube speed cubing kit
The current world record stands at 9.18 seconds. Think you’re geek enough to beat that? That’s no easy task, Poindexter. But if you really want it and you are willing to train like a Nerd Rocky Balboa, this new kit can help.

The official Rubik’s Speed Cubing Kit has some completely legal tricks to help you out. (legal as defined by world record standards.) The kit includes a bottle of lubricant, not so much for if you get yourself all excited, but more to help reduce the friction on the moving parts. It also includes a few screwdrivers for loosening the joints. You even get a manual on how to become a professional cuber, but it’s in Japanese. It’s going to take the eye of the tiger, but you can do it. You can win Rock…

12 more rejected Star Wars promotional items
Remember when we showed you the rejected Star Wars items in February? Well here’s 12 more items of questionable quality and to add to the list.

With all the Star Wars items on the market today, this has to be pretty bad, tacky and just out there stuff, to have been rejected right? How about Bantha slippers? Some seem fine, if a bit odd, like Galactic Foosball or the Death Star dart board. My favorite is the Galactic Big Game trophies. Nothing says geek like the heads of various Star Wars beasts on the wall. Pictures galore below.

Battlestar Galactica Viper
We thought we’d take a little break from the usual and take a look at some cool art cars that geeks have modded into their own visions of coolness. So here’s some random pimped out tonnage of pure nerd love coming at ya. When a nerd has a car, all things are possible…Though it will usually end up having something to do with the Star Wars universe.

French maid PC case will not get you laid

French maid PC case
Yes, buying this French maid PC case is as good as admitting that you have not yet had, and likely never will have relations with the opposite sex. And if your first reaction was wood, followed by a burning desire for an upskirt shot in the hopes of finding your new favorite USB port, I suggest you buy this sawed off plaything and go to town. Real girls everywhere will thank you for removing yourself from the gene pool.

Be warned. It costs a hefty $499. And you don’t even get boobs. In geek money that translates to about 10 Wii games. It’s only about 1/4 of a woman in it’s current state anyway. It might be fun to mix and match different body parts, both under and above this torso. You know, give it some Amphibian legs, with a terminator exoskeleton top or something.

Interactive 8-bit gamer’s Valentine’s shirts

Interactive 8-bit gamer’s Valentine’s shirts
Are you the kind of couple that dress up as Zelda and Link and hit the convention circuit? Maybe you’re the type of person who can’t get enough Twilight Princess game time in, and when you do, you pick up as many hearts as possible, even if your heart containers are full, all the while thinking about your significant other.

If that describes you and your main squeeze, I have your new shirts right here. These shirts come in pairs and during the normal course of whatever the hell it is you do, two and a half pixelated hearts will light up. But when you get within hugging distance of your significant other geek wearing the matching shirt, suddenly the hearts on both shirts light up until you’re fully powered up.
