Thinkgeek Spotlight – Flashdrives

In these modern times, everyone uses flash drives.  And since I love flashdrives and I love Thinkgeek, I thought I would spotlight a few of the more interesting ones found on the site.

Ok, This one looks like a broken USB wire.  People will think you are crazy sticking this in a computer…its genius! (Holds 2GB)

This one is neatly hidden inside of a watch.  Makes you feel like James Bond. 😉 (Holds 8GB)

This is the smallest flash drive around, yet it holds the most info.  This littly thing can hold 8 or 16 GB.  Yeah, 16.

Who does not like legos?  This flash drive is designed to look like the colorful bulding blocks that made our childhood better.

I don’t have much need for a lighter, but for the nerd who smokes, or is an arsonist, this flash drive/lighter could come in very handy.

ThinkGeek Spotlight – Star Wars

Well, I did a Star Trek one, so I may as well do a Star Wars one!

HAN SHOT FIRST!!! This shirt proclames in big white letters what fans have been screaming since the special edition came out! Now we can spread the messege without saying a word. 😀

Not only do these mini statues look awesome, but by simply pushing a button, you can hear a random quote from the character. Not only that, but if you attach one to your dashboard, when you hit a bump, the character will spew a random phrase.

Like the Thinkgeek description said “Nothing can make one smile quite like hitting a small pothole and hearing C-3PO say, ‘Goodness Gracious Me!'”

These Sabers are not just sabers, they are lamps! Imagine, reading a

book by saberlight. Or having a romantic dinner with your girlfriend by saberlight. (in which case, you probably won’t have a girlfriend much longer) Still…its awesome

Ever Star Wars fanatic dreams of having their own Force FX Lightsaber, but this is one step better. I DIY Force FX kit. Yes, you can build your own Force FX lightsaber!!! It is like a dream come true…and oh what a sweet dream it is.

This shirt is for those who like a little Star Wars in their Programming shirts.
