The fantastic on-line geek store ThinkGeek has a tradition to release their most incredible products at April 1st. I remember when they showed for the first time the PC EZ-Bake Oven to make tiny cakes while you are using the computer, the Fundue, a desktop USB Fondue Set and Buzzaire – Metered Dose Caffeine Inhaler, that would be perfect now.
This year they highlighted seven new products: The ThinkGeek WiiHelm to fit your Wii control and let you hands free to eat cereal while you play – with a very illustrative video-; The ThinkGeek 8-bit Tie, to all the guys that miss the 8-Bit video games; a set of Piranhaz – R/C Battle Fish, with two battle fish, equipped with their own laser cannon; SurgeStix – Inhalable Caffeine Stix, a kind of cigarette with coffee in the tobacco’s place; and the damn useful The Lonely Guy Dream Vacation Digital Photo Frame, all you need to make your friends stop to encouraging you to take a vacation.
My honourable mention goes to two of them. The first is the Sn?zNL?z, a Wifi Donation Alarm Clock, is brilliant. It connects via WiFi to your online bank account, and donates YOUR real money to an organization you HATE when you decide to snooze! That’s what I call a very efficient alarm clock, that deeply motivates you to wake up. The tagline says everything: Wake up to the smell of…Animosity…
And the second honourable gadget is the Vilcus Plug Dactyloadapter, which allows anyone to quickly and easily test the working condition of any wall socket. Really useful and it’s much easy than try the kids technique – search for things that could fit at the wall socket. This ingenious product was developed by the Russian design studio Art Lebedev specially to ThinkGeek customers enjoy the health benefits of finger contact with high-voltage electricity.
Check also the other amazing products announced by Think Geek through the years. BTW, I made a screenshot of their main page in the case of some of you miss it at April Fool’s Day.
