She may not look much…

February 11, 2009

…but she’ll make .5 past lighspeed.

These cufflinks may not look that good up close in the pics but in the thumbnails they look worthy of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.

That’s not to say they are worthless – think about the last time you got up close (about 5cm/2in away), to a cufflink to examine the workmanship.  Considering the distance usually viewed at, and the likelihood that they’ll be worn at weddings and other alcohol drenched events, I don’t think the up close flatness of the image would harm anyone’s geek-cred.

Available here. Can also be ordered as a pendant, or pretty much anything else you can think of.  In fact they say can make you anything you want, why not ask for a fullsize version.


The Ultimate Star Wars Gadget

February 3, 2009

This one is quite old, but it really is the pinnacle of colliding Star Wars with gadgetdom.  Who cares how much it costs (a lot), who cares how often you trip over it and who cares what the opposite sex will make of it.  Gimme gimme gimme

Ha ha. “Some sort of battleship”

With more features than you can shake a lightsabre at, can you afford to live without it?

Available from  If you get one, let me know.

3D Kites

February 3, 2009

Ooooh baby!  I’ve never been into kites as they generally look shit and I’m crap at flying them, but these at least get round the first problem I have with them.

I’d love to be standing on a hill and see a bunch of these swooping around re-enacting the Battle of Yavin

If you are, like me, crap with kites, then be careful about crashing them into some passing egg boxes painted grey.

Available from April from ThinkGeek.
