Geek Flip Flops

at 2:32 pm. Filed under Funny Hacks


Skechers Shape Up Shoes sent in a cool Geek Inspired Flip Flops list they made. I think the metal detector flip flops are my favorite. I am hoping that the picture below is just a prank picture! These guys have an electric grill in the middle of a small pool and there is a pairs of flip flops holding the power bar just barely out of the water. Maybe they are hoping that the GFI will save them!

“Made of chunky black plastic, these foot-bound money-makers are durable and comfortable as well as a potential ticket to a goldmine. The actual control box stays on your calf thanks to an elasticated band, and the box itself is no more obtrusive than, say, a walkie talkie (though you’d be mad to strap a walkie talkie to your leg unless you were a contortionist). Anyway, the point is that the Treasure Seekers are a great deal easier to use than the traditional metal detectors and, if you want them to be, they’ll be very discreet. Now you can combine your country walks and strolls in the surf with discovering treasure!

  • Metal-detecting sandals.
  • More user-friendly than traditional metal detectors.
  • Find buried treasure just by walking about.
  • Detector pack straps to ankle via elasticated band.
  • Pack will vibrate or beep when metal is detected underfoot.”

    If anyone asks why there’s a box strapped to your leg, just tell them that you’re supposed to be on house arrest but you got bored.

    LOL Rob,

    I never thought about that but I am sure that is what most people would think. 🙂

    I don’t think they are in the guild anymore, but it’s really weird that I would come across that picture again. =)
