at 10:31 pm. Filed under Contests

The comments have been fast and furious this month. Thanks to all of you for lots of great comments. The winner is Hexypoo, the winning comment was comment number 6 on the Top 5 Spinning LED Displays.

Hexypoo will get the a $50 gift certificate to ThinkGeek.

Below are a few examples of cool geek items that I would consider with the gift certificate. What will Hexypoo get? I am sure he will leave a comment to fill us in. 🙂


USB Rocket Launcher

The USB Rocket Launcher would be one of my picks if I had $50 to spend.

“This rocket launcher connects to your Windows 2000, XP or Vista machine via USB. Install the included software, plug in the Rocket Launcher, and with 360 degree horizontal rotation and 45 degree vertical rotation, the USB Rocket Launcher can fire over six meters, giving you coverage for over 113 square meters of your workspace.”


Wi Fi Signal Locator

The Wi Fi Signal Locator would be a great addition to a keychain or clipped to the laptop bag.

“The Mobile Edge WiFi Signal Locator is the smallest and most convenient way to check for hot spots without going through the tedious process of having to first boot-up your notebook and then search for a signal. By attaching the WiFi SL to your key chain or carrying case you will always be immediately aware of the presence of local hot spots!

The Wifi SL is half the size of the nearest competitive product and uses proprietary, patent-pending technology to eliminate false readings caused by such common objects as microwaves and portable phones. ”


Bluetooth Retro Handset

How funny would it be to use this Bluetooth Retro Handset instead if the tiny cell phones that are all too common…

“We have taken the ever-popular Retro Handset and updated it to connect to your cell phone using Bluetooth technology. That’s right! No more tangled up phone cord. Now people will think you’re really crazy talking into a old-time handset connected to… nothing. Oh, and speaking of nothing, there’s nothing out there quite like this handset because this product is a ThinkGeek original design, only available here. How ’bout them blueberries?”
