Corn Dog Maker - Um Yes Please I'll Take Two
Wednesday, December 30, 2009 1:58 PM

 

 

Why has this never crossed my mind, that you could get a device can could make endless quantities of corn dogs right in the comfort of your own home. I don't know why I don't own one! I like corn dogs and now I want to make them at my house and I'm sure they will be super yummy. YOu might be asking what does this have to do with geek toys and gadgets? Nothing I'm hungry and this looked like awesome! If you are like me and want fresh homemade cord dogs in your home it's just a click away at amazon for $18 bucks. YES I want two! Why two? I need a backup just in case one breaks. I can't be without a cord dog maker ever again.

Wednesday, December 30, 2009 1:18 PM

 

 

 What is it about bacon that is so awesome? The world may never know but one thing is for sure bacon is yummy. So why wouldn't he like everything to taste like bacon even your popcorn. Popcorn is good on it's own but add the taste of bacon and you have Baconpop. Instant popcorn that taste like bacon! What could be better? You could save your bacon fat and pop your popcorn in that to achieve that same flavor but who has time to do that?

Sling Back - A Universal Wire Retractor
Friday, December 18, 2009 12:56 PM

 


Ever since the iPod came out people have been wondering what to do with their headphone cord. You can wrap it, fold it, or twist it but this usually ends up damaging the cord or crimping the wire. So the best thing for a wire it to be wound around something without being twisted. Companies sell headphone that come with their own cord retractor but I don't want their headphones I want to use mine! Enter the Sling Back, a universal wire retractor for your headphone or whatever other cord you may have. The Sling Back works with any chord that is 1/8" inches in diameter or less. I had this very idea several years ago and here it is. The product is in pre-production over at Quirky.com. You can pre-order one and when they get to their pre-sale goal they will start producing and shipping. You can get one of these guys for only $9.99 which I think is a great deal so go and check it out.

Logitech Harmoney Universal Remote - Show of your geek level
Friday, December 18, 2009 12:27 PM

 


 I have this theory about people's level of geekyness. If someone has a universal remote that can control all their devices you can tell the level of their geekyness by how much they spent on their remote. Someone who is not that geeky might get a cheap one, you know just to get the job done, but a true geek has a Logitech Harmony 1000 series. This thing can do just about anything with it's 3.5 inch color touch screen. I have been watching this device for a long time and one day I tell you I will have it. It sells for a cool $300 at most places, which makes it a difficult purchase for me because it's hard to justify a $300 remote. This remote can learn any device and can be programed with your computer. Just tell the program what devices you have and it programs them for you. It has a rechargeable battery and you can even buy an IR extender so you can control devices that are stored in a cabinet and out of sight.

Ice Cream Sandwich Bench - Makes me scream for ice cream!
Wednesday, December 16, 2009 12:42 PM

 


 Oh man do I ever want one of these. I mean who wouldn't want a bench that looks like your favorite childhood treat. This thing makes me want to go down to the store and buy a box of ice cream sandwiches and sit on the couch and eat the whole box. I have a feeling that this behavior would make me even more fat than I am now. Having said that I don't think I could afford this thing anyway it's $950 bucks. If it was $100 I might consider getting it but for now i shall just stick to eating ice cream sandwiches instead of sitting on them.

Lego Man Head Lamp - Geek Stuff for your Kid
Tuesday, December 15, 2009 12:56 PM

 



 I don't know about you people out there but I love me some Legos. I am still kind of upset that I don't still have my old Lego stash. I also like to go camping and you will not believe how useful a head lamp is when you're trying to get dressed in the dark. This little Lego head lamp will light your way and be cute at the same time. Perhaps it would look better on a child but I'm a child at heart so wear on.

Universal Gadget Wrist Charger - Gets you charged up without the outlet hunt
Thursday, December 10, 2009 10:58 AM

  I am sure you have seen someone hanging out in a coffee shop or somewhere with their phone or other device plugged in. I have even seem people squatting down next to outlets trying to talk on their phone while the short cord it's plugged into the wall. How embarrassing is that? The handy little wristband can charge you device and keep you moving. I know it looks like something from a sci-fi movie but it's better than the alternative. The best part for me is that it works with my iPhone, which is a huge plus. It also works with:
  • iPhone
  • Nokia II (2mm)
  • Nokia I (3.5mm)
  • Mini USB (for Motorola/HTC/Dopod/MP3/MP4)
  • LG
  • Samsung i900
  • Sony Ericsson
  • Sony PSP
  • NDS Lite
  • Nintendo DSi
So Game on and get your talk on with this very handy gadget.

Samrai LED Watch Now a Real Product
Wednesday, December 9, 2009 12:48 PM

 

 

At some point this metal bracelet that hid an LED watch in the grooves was just a concept, at least everyone thought it was. Now it can be found over at Chinavasion for a mere $15 bucks. They claim that the watch is made a samurai sword metal which seems to be a stretch to say the least. I don't think a person who buys such a watch is buying it for the quality of the construction. This watch is novelty at best, but is still cool and geek to the core.

Bacon Magnets - Pin stuff to the fidge with awesomeness!
Tuesday, December 8, 2009 11:56 AM

 

 Everyone loves bacon, that is if you eat meat which I do, and I would be okay if someone wanted to make it it's own food group. Bacon has got to be the best thing in the world. I mean you wrap other foods in bacon to make them taste better that is how awesome bacon is. So why not have bacon magnets. Display your stuff on the fridge with deliciousness, but beware that the bacon is not real so don't try and eat it please. You get four pieces of magnetic bacon for $4.99 at my favorite homemade gift shop Etsy. Give the gift the bacon to a loved one this holiday season.

USB Wall Outlet - It's about time!
Friday, December 4, 2009 10:51 AM

 

 

It's about time someone comes out with a wall outlet that you can plug in USB devices. It makes a whole lot of sense. We have USB outlets in cars and such why not in your home. I have so many USB devices that I would love to plug into the wall. All of my Apple gear like my iPhone and iPod could plug-in to the wall. Someone was thinking yeah for progression.

 USB Wall Outlet $9.99 preorder Shipping in 2010.

Instant Wine Chiller
Thursday, December 3, 2009 2:59 PM

 

 

 Sometime I can't help but to buy a bottle of wine that is not chilled before going to a friends house. Well you could wait till the wine got cold in the fridge, which would take an hour or you could use something like this. This instant wine chiller is placed into the freezer and has a metal coil inside that is chilled. When you are ready to drink your wine it put it on top and presto chilled wine. It can chill a whole bottle of wine up to 15 degrees. Not sure it's worth the $39.95 but if you really don't like waiting here is your solution.

Need Coffee Human fuel levels dangerously low!
Tuesday, December 1, 2009 12:20 PM

 

 

This is how a feel a lot of the time. I need my coffee in the morning and don't get started without it. I think there is some kind of correlation between coffee and people who work on computer all day. I mean there has to be why else would I drink an entire pot of coffee all by myself? Well maybe that is just me, but I have to say that I would were this shirt with pride and say yes I am addicted to coffee and yes I want a refill. :)
