I have been looking for months for a guitar strap to go with my collection of Guitar Hero and Rock Band guitars. Unfortunately I always look for something completely off the wall and with a bit of geeky influence, which means it's doubtful I'll find one at the local music store. However, my search is finally over, this 8-Bit Guitar Strap is just the thing.
Etsy once again has dished out another geeky little gem, this Rebel Necklace. Anyone who knows enough about Star Wars to recognize the symbol is likely to be drawn to it.
As a female geek I often notice situations that are strongly leaning toward the male geeks. In all fairness sometimes it does get exaggerated a bit by some, but it still does get obnoxious from time to time. Especially when suggested gift lists for girls suggest jewelry and clothes; then the guys is full of Palm Pilots and all kinds of cool toys. Which makes it highly refreshing when I saw this year's Jinx gift list for both girl and guy geeks.
About a month ago my sister-in-law enthusiastically tried to con me into going to a party where they sit around and put teddy bear stamps on everything. I believe they call it a scrapbooking party, although she only came back with greeting cards. I of course turned her down flat, then again if I'd have had this stamp I might have considered it.
In more recent years I've become a bit of a Star Wars dork, I probably would have as a kid but I didn't see the trilogy until about 6 years ago. I know, I was a sheltered child. These days though, I'm always a sucker for Star Wars inspired toys and gadgets. This computer mod definitely gives me that warm fuzzy feeling.
I will never understand the need to turn gaming controllers into plush, however, here is yet another converted into a plush little pillow. This isn't just any Guitar Hero controller, it's the Wii controller.
There is nothing quite like the geek furniture that is produced from games. Some of it is a bit more small and subtle and then others are completely impossible to blend in with the average home. This Wii cabinet may be a bit out there, but for die hard fans it's perfect.
Sometimes even gamers need to look nice, you can't wear those quirky tees all the time. If you're stuck in an office all day, you need that one bit of rebellion to remind you of who you really are. These cuff links are a nice enough quality to blend into any environment.
If you miss all those retro Atari games, sometimes its nice to have a little something to remind you of the 'good old days'. I'm sure I've said before, but Etsy is a great resource for original geek gear. This charm and earring set are a great example of that.
There is nothing quite like that true geeky pixelated look. There have been several different bits of fashion and gadgets featuring a pixel look to them. However, this is the first cell phone sporting that particular look.
