Happy holidays from everyone here at Hacked Gadgets! This month Hacked Gadgets will be giving a lucky commenter a $75 gift certificate to ThinkGeek.

To enter please comment on this post to tell us what you would purchase at Think Geek if you win (please include a link so others can look at it) and comment on an article between now and January 1, 2008. The more comments you leave the better your odds of winning!

“ThinkGeek started as an idea. A simple idea to create and sell stuff that would appeal to the thousands of people out there who were on the front line and in the trenches as the Internet was forged. From programmers, engineers, students, lovers of open source, to the masses that helped create the behind-the-scenes Internet culture. ThinkGeek started as a way to serve a market that was passionate about technology.”

Below are a few examples of cool geek items that you could get with the gift certificate. What would you get with $75 to spend?


USB Rocket Launcher

The USB Rocket Launcher would be one of my picks if I had $75 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 Detector Shirt

This Wi-Fi Detector Shirt should come in handy when you are looking for a network to connect to. 🙂

“The glowing bars on the front of the shirt dynamically change as the surrounding wi-fi signal strength fluctuates. Finally you can get the attention you deserve as others bow to you as their reverential wi-fi god, while geeky chicks swoon at your presence. You can thank us later.

Product Features

* Glowing animated shirt dynamically displays the current wi-fi signal strength.
* Shows signal strength for 802.11b or 802.11g
* Black 100% Cotton T-Shirt
* Animated Decal is Removable (with hook and loop fasteners) for Easy Washing
* Battery Pack is Concealed in a Small Pocket Sewn Inside the Shirt
* Runs for hours off three AAA Batteries (not included)”


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?”
