Ever wanted to give your office and workspace a little extra bit of geek power? Whether you’re in a C-Suit office or in the basement (IT Crowd, anyone?), we found some awesome items, gadgets, and goodies for you.
Some are just decoration, some have a functionality as well, and others again are plain silly but good fun.
So, just in time for this year’s Christmas shopping, check out our latest list for geek inventory to suit your office and your desks.
The Ferrofluid Magnetic Display is a rather cool time killer. It doesn’t only look awesome but it’s actually a lot of fun to play with it. Put it on your desk and you can be sure to attract all sorts of people to play with it. Or hide it and keep it to yourself. 😉
Update: If it’s sold out, you can check for alternative sellers.
Mr. Earth Levitating Globe
If you’re dealing with international business and operations all over the world, it’s always nice to have a globe or a map of the world around to check on some locations at times. If you want to push it to the next level you simply go for the unbeatable levitating globe.
Flavor of the Day Desktop Calendar
Calendars are an essential part of the office outfitting. Who would ever want to forget what day it is? Think they are a little boring? Yeah, I’d usually agree. If you’re interested in something more interesting you should check out the “lick-me” flavor-of-the-day calendar. Please buy one for every single person. Sharing only one with a whole office is not recommended. 😀
Solarbotics Perpetual Motion Marble Kit
A perpetuum mobile, or perpetual motion device is a machine that works only by consuming just as much energy as it generates and therefore functioning indefinitely on its own. With this kit you can almost achieve that, for as long the solar panels get daylight. Certainly a beauty in every geeky environment and good fun to build up.
Eye of Sauron Desk Lamp
The eye of Sauron sees it all. It will move from side to side, trying to find the one ring, from Lord of the Rings. As you know from the books or movies, the eye of Sauron rests on the top of the tower of Barad-dûr and this desk lamp captures it beautifully with its 21 inches height.
LED Potion Desk Lamp
You’re not that much into LotR, but still love fantasy geeky things? How about this LED desk lamp in the shape of a potion bottle? Definitely something for every RPG fan out there. You need some mana back? It can be a blue potion lamp. Better restore some HP before the next battle? Red potion lamp it is. Thanks to LED technology it can change colors – no problem. Lovely!
Han Solo in Carbonite Business Card Case
Your personal business cards are lying around? Handing over your details in a bad shape? No style? Fear not! The Star Wars carbonite business card case doesn’t only store your favorite space smuggler, but also keeps your business cards in one place. This will definitely leave the right impression, but don’t get cocky, kid!
Warcraft Chair Banner
Choose between the Alliance and the Horde, but choose this chair banner to make sure everybody knows who’s the lvl 100 rogue in the team. Simple, but effective, and most certainly attracting some attention.
Blizzard World of Warcraft Leveling Up Ding Button
Blizzard’s sound designers are doing a great job. They created iconic sounds such as the Murloc gurgle and the laugher of the treasure goblin. Next to that there was a very special sound in WoW, that played whenever your character gained enough EXP to make it to the next level. This button here allows you to play the level-up-ding-sound whenever necessary. Completed a difficult meeting or achieved other greatness? Smack that button and welcome on the next level. Grats!
Star Trek Bat’leth Letter Opener
You remember the Bat’leth from Star Trek? This melee weapon could have been your end, if you’re unskilled in combat against Klingon warriors. This tiny version of it looks just like the real deal, but it’s designed just to open your mail with style, not slay your enemies, without honor.
Bonus: 100 Tricks to Appear Smarter in Meetings
Not that I’d ever read something like this (“ehem….”), but I heard this book can be great fun and in some situations it might even prove to be useful. How about it? No, really. It’s actually very amusing. 😉
Bonus: Star Wars Millennium Falcon Micro-USB Charging Cable
The Millennium Falcon? Of course! How could we fail to include you? Mostly charging cables for your smartphones and other gadgets are really boring and have no aesthetic appeal whatsoever. With this special charger cable you can change this. Charge with style and a hyperdrive!
Whether you choose to grab these for yourself or as a gift, they will certainly be a statement in your office. A statement that says, “I’m a proud geek! Fear me!” or befriend me if you’re a fellow geek.
