2D Glasses

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2011

3D is the latest gimmick to get you into theaters, but maybe you don’t want 3D. Maybe you are sick of it. Maybe it even makes you sick or gives you a headache. Not everything needs to be 3D. These 2d glasses can help.

3D movies show two overlapping images on the screen, with one image for the right eye and the other for the left eye. 3D glasses darken the eye that is not meant to see the image. 2D glasses takes the image for the right eye and shows both eyes. What you get is plain old 2D.

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on November 17th, 2010

ThinkGeek knows what geeks want and they are not afraid to give it to them. If you love both Star Wars and Lego, these are the alarm for you. They look like Lego minifigures, but function as an alarm clock. They come in Darth Vader or a Storm Trooper.

BeerBot shirt from ThinkGeek is a frat boy’s best friend

Posted in clothing by Shane McGlaun on July 14th, 2010

ThinkGeek has all sorts of epic geeky clothing and gadgets. The company often combines the geeky clothing with some sort of useful feature like a shirt that has a guitar you can really play.

The latest shirt from ThinkGeek is the BeerBot Bottle Opening Shirt. The thing is offered for about $20 and is in small to XXL. The front of the shirt has a screen-printed robot that is in the shape of a beer bottle, but reminds me a lot of Bender.

ThinkGeek gets cease and desist letter for unicorn meat

Posted in Douchbaggery by Shane McGlaun on June 23rd, 2010

The level of douchbaggery that lawyers and companies go to protect their trademarks never ceases to amaze me. The latest crazy legal letter to cross my desk comes from ThinkGeek. ThinkGeek is big on messing with folks with faux products that are just realistic enough to get a geek reaching for their credit card.

Some of the products listed on the ThinkGeek website are obviously fake and just meant for fun. A perfect example was the Canned Unicorn Meat that the site had up for sale a while back. I hear it tasted like Spam.

C-3PO Bespin backpack now available for Pre-Order

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2010

Remember in Empire Strikes Back when Chewie had to carry a dismembered C-3PO around on his back? Well, now you can too. Sort of. As a backpack. And it’s available for pre-order from ThinkGeek. Made from golden leatherette, Threepio comes with a mesh pouch with backpack straps for holding all of his appendages, and the torso features a zippered pocket for storing stuff inside him.

It would be awesome to carry your iPad in this. Well, if your idea of awesome is to see a lot of people pointing and laughing at an adult nerd. The eyes even light up and flicker, and he can be fully assembled into a 3+ foot tall protocol droid.

Tauntaun sleeping bag closer to becoming a reality

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2009

Tauntaun sleeping bagYou may remember ThinkGeek posting an April Fool’s joke about a Tauntaun sleeping bag in April. We covered it here ourselves. Well, ThinkGeek was flooded with e-mails from people who, like us, wanted to own one for real. They got so many emails that they decided to explore the possibility.

The good news for us is that things are looking up. Think Geek PR man Shane Peterman says: “We are definitely trying to make it into an actual item to be sold on our site. As of right now, it’s still an “if,” but it’s turning into more of a “when.” Things are looking pretty good, we just don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. There’s certainly been enough of a demand, both from customers and from those of us that work here. Right now, we’re aiming to have it available for the holidays or, at the latest, the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back next spring.”

ThinkGeek is offering new DIY Dinosaur Lamps that are made from laser cut sheets of flexible plastic. The lamps require assembly, which amounts to putting tab A into slot B and so on. The directions promise to be easy to follow and lots of pictures are included.
