Doomed Crystal Skull Shotglass
The life of an average skull is pretty straightforward. First, you're inhabited by the brains of your human, then you're either burned or buried and inhabited by... well, let's not think about that. If you're very lucky, you may end up on stage for a production of Hamlet. If you're very unlucky, you get inhabited by a spirit of intellect under the control of an evil necromancer...
Star Trek Enterprise Mug
You may not be keeping the flagship of the Federation in flying condition, but your job is just as important. Actually, that's a lie. Unless you're a pilot, an avionics specialist, an air traffic controller, or an astronaut, a airship isn't going to drop out of the sky if you slack off on the job. The good news is that you don't need to stress out as much. If a few lines of code go unwritten, or you used Pantone 16-1120 instead of 16-1320, nobody will die. Pour your caffeinated fluid of choice into this blue ceramic mug, featuring line art of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701. You may not have a mess hall, but if your office kitchen has a single-cup brewer, that's pretty close to replicator technology. This beauty of a mug will hold twelve ounces of fuel and can be refilled as many times as it takes to get through the day's mission. Product Specifications Blue ceramic mug for fans of Star Trek Features line art of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 Officially licensed Star Trek collectible Holds 12 ounces of your favorite beverage Integrated handle included at no extra charge Microwave and dishwasher safe
Cocktail Chemistry Set
There are several rules for cocktails - 1. You must be twenty-one. 2. - A proper martini is made with gin and not vodka (sorry, but it's true). And 3. - Constitutional isomers of dimethyl ether, when blended with a combination of citric acids and disaccharides are damned tasty. If you can live by these rules, then you can be a certified scientific mixologist: one who is capable of using their immense intelligence to create astonishingly awesome alcoholic beverages. We've got your starter set of glassware right here. Beakers, vials and lab-stand right out of a mad-scientist's laboratory. Beware the pan-galactic-gargle-blasters, though. They are potent.
Star Trek Acrylic Travel Cup
"Just because you're a red shirt doesn't mean you shouldn't take care of your body. If you hope to sit in that Captain's chair you'd better hydrate like one. Sure, you can drink your Saurian Brandy and Romulan Ale, but you need to follow that up with some H2O if you're going to be ready to explore the galaxy like a boss. This BPA-free, double-walled cup will have you hydrating like a Captain. It features the Star Trek logo and line art of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 and will hold 18 ounces of your favorite cold beverage. Double-walled cups are our favorite! Not only do they keep drinks colder longer, they also prevent condensation from forming on the outside of your cup. It's not space-age technology, but it sure does make the work day a lot less... moist. Product Specifications Star Trek themed double wall acrylic travel cup with straw Features line art of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 Perfect for hydrating when on away missions Double wall keeps drinks cold and prevents condensation Holds 18 ounces of your favorite cold beverage Materials: BPA-free acrylic Love your cup: hand washing recommended Dimensions: 4"" x 4"" x 6.25"""
Stem - DIY Citrus Juice Sprayer
"Our weekly grocery list always includes at least one lemon. They're such a versatile fruit. You can make lemonade, burn down houses, brighten up the flavor of a dish, prevent cut fruit from browning, and garnish beverages. But until now, to retrieve the juice from a citrus fruit, you had to cut it in half and squeeze it. You had to try to catch the seeds before they landed in the bowl or skillet with the rest of the recipe. And if you wanted to spritz citrus juice, you had to put that squeezed juice into a spritzer. With Stem, you can spray juice directly from a citrus fruit. Use the serrated teeth to chomp a hole in the fruit. Then you can spray juice directly on your favorite foods lightly and evenly. It's perfect for fruit trays, fried fish, and any other dish that just needs a spritz of bright citrus flavor. Product Specifications Spray citrus juice directly from the lemon, lime, or orange Serrated teeth allow for easy insertion into fruit Sprays and distributes juice evenly Easy disassembly for cleaning (hand wash) Small and easy to store Materials: Food safe plastic Dimensions: 3.68"" x 0.94"" Warning: Do not use Stem on Cave Johnson's Combustible Lemons."
Molecular Cocktails Starter Kit
The mixed drink has seen a resurgence in popularity, and a great deal of effort has gone into reinvigorating older style cocktails and making them hip again. Gone are the days of Mudslides and Appletinis. We're ushering in a new era of Gimlets, Sidecars, and Rob Roys. Still, modern palates may find those older cocktails a little flat. Today, people expect not only the mule kick of a glass full of the hard stuff - they want flavors and textures. They expect sweet and sour mixed with caramel and smoke. They want effervescence, and silky smooth and slick textures. Putting whiskey and vermouth into a cocktail shaker and going to town on it won't make a delightfully foamy concoction, cognac and lemon juice will never glow in the dark, nor will blending vodka and lime juice make it into a jelly. If you want to take your cocktails to the next level, you'll need help. That help comes in the form of science! Flavorless chemicals that thicken, color, and stabilize your concoctions into new forms. Delight your friends as you deconstruct the classic tequila sunrise with caviar made of grenadine and a foamy head of tequila and orange juice! Hand off a martini that's chilled and dry, but glows in the dark! Serve up skewered Midori cubes that taste like the classic melon liqueur, but are chewed rather than sipped. And that's just the beginning! With the included booklet, learn how to make more than fifty new and amazing cocktails, with skill requirements ranging from trivial to advanced. All you need is a little alcohol, some friends, and a little help from science! Features All-in-one kit of tools and texturizers Make incredible cocktails to amaze your friends Included in this kit: 40g Cold Soluble Gelatin 50g Calcium Lactate 20g Sodium Alginate 10g Xanthan Gum 20g Soy Lecithin Measuring Spoons Slotted Spoon 1 DVD of 30 cool recipes with easy-to follow instructions Pipettes for spherification
The OCD Chef Cutting Board
Cooking is as much a science as it is an art, and science requires precision. You need precise cooking temperatures, exacting timing, and perfect knife skills. Take a look at sushi chefs and the care they take in cutting their tuna into millimeters thick slices. You might not be a sushi chef, but you pride yourself on the exacting methods required for making even a lowly bologna and cheese sandwich...
The Hungry Scientist Handbook
So there we were working in the lab late one night, when suddenly we heard a terrible growl. Was it our equipment? Was it a rival scientist ready to attack? Had the monster finally come to life? Nope. It was Doctor Hans' stomach - it was hungry and demanding to be fed. It's a good thing we're all geniuses - but it's even better that we're smart enough to have a copy of The Hungry Scientist Handbook. With it, we were able to whip up some amazing edibles in no time. The Hungry Scientist Handbook brings DIY technology into the kitchen and onto the plate. It compiles the most mouthwatering projects created by a mechanical engineer and his band of intrepid techie friends (like Robin Hood, but without the tights). Their mission: the pursuit of projects possessing varying degrees of whimsy and utility, and this book is a chronicle of their success. In no time, you'll be donning lab goggles in the kitchen and kitchen goggles in the lab - just make sure to label your ingredients (don't want you drinking acid by accident). The Hungry Scientist Handbook features twenty projects including: Edible origami Light up lollipops Cryogenic martinis DIY edible underwear and loads more!
Portion - Cooking Spoons w/ Measuring Grooves

Robot Tea Infuser
They don't have emotions (yet), but robots are slowly taking over all the boring jobs we didn't want to do ourselves. They skim our swimming pools, vacuum our floors, spy on our children, and now they brew us the perfect cup of loose leaf tea.

Pop open his chest compartment and load it with your favorite loose leaf tea. Close it up and he's ready for an invigorating dip in your hot tub mug of scalding hot water.

Into Focus Camera Lens Coffee Mug
"A photographer needs to stay alert. That perfect shot lies between moments - 1/250th of a second, your subject is framed perfectly, shadows falling just so, everything is in perfect focus. The next 1/250th of a second, it's a disaster. Motion, blinking, an errant flash somewhere off camera... to be a good photographer, you've got to stay sharp, and quite literally in focus. That's why photographers, like every other subgenus of geek, love their caffeine. It keeps that trigger finger itchy, and ready to let the light in. At it folds through mirrors and lenses and falls onto the medium, whether it's chemically photosensitive film, charged couple device, or metal-oxide-semiconductors, the photographer lends his own personality to the image captured.

Spilt Milk Cereal Bowl
We're going to let you inside the hallowed halls of ThinkGeek's World Domination Corporate Headquarters for a moment for a quick tour. Over here is our cloning facility where we build the genetically engineered robot monkeys that fill your packages for shipment. Down the hall there is the lead-lined bunker where the experimental tricobalt fusion reactor pumps out the terawatts of power necessary to keep the engines of commerce running in our datacenter. Around the corner there is Ted from human resources. And over here is the commissary. This is where many of our geeks take their lunch breaks where they ingest their favorite kinds of fuel. Some opt for Taun Taun steaks, others go for shredded bits of vegetation - what we call 'Salad Club.' Still others opt for bowls of colorful breakfast cereal for lunch. What? There's nothing wrong with breakfast cereal as an other-than-for-breakfast meal! Look at the side of the packaging - it's chock full of all kinds of vitamins, and where else are you going to get your RDA of yellow number six? It's, like, a daily requirement, man. Anyway, most of our geeks use highly specialized vessels in which they pour their Trix, or Captain Crunch, or Fruity Pebbles. Hans prefers upturned dinosaur fossil skulls. Christian two-fists it by pouring a mouthful of cereal followed by a gulp of soy-milk with each bite. However, we've just got in a shipment of squishy silicone bowls made to look like an artistic splash of milk frozen into a concave shape. Perfectly suitable for a giant bowl of Peanut Butter Bumpers. Moving on - we're walking, we're walking. And here's the end of our tour! Make sure you visit the gift shop on your way out!
Mini Cupcake Factory
"Cupcakes appeal to the geek because they're entirely made out of cake! Plus, they're teeny and cute, and, for some reason, things that are miniaturized make some of the geek girls here in the office squee with delight! One only has to look at adorable pictures of miniature horses to know the truth of this. So, in the epic battle of cake vs. cupcake, the cupcake has one point for its teenyness, if that's even a word. Another advantage the cupcake has is, due to its size, it has an extremely high crust-to-cake ratio. You know, that outer layer of extra caramelized batter that's soaked up some of the oil and has a slight give to the crumb? Nummy. Also, again - size related, the cupcake cooks in a mere 5 minutes time. So, if you include the time spent mixing and heating the cupcake pan, you're only 10 minutes away from craving to nomming delicious hot cupcakes! ThinkGeek knows you love cupcakes - mostly because we love cupcakes. Consequently, when we found this electric mini cupcake pan, we knocked over little old ladies to get at them. Each one of these little pans heats up in minutes, and cooks 7 cupcakes at a time in 5 short minutes. So you can go from craving to mixing to eating hot delicious cupcakes in less time than it takes to make five 2-minute eggs. Maybe our math is wrong? Apropos of nothing: in the UK, they're called ""fairy cakes."" Unfortunately for our british friends, though, this little guy only has a US 110v plug. Which is fine, really. More for us!"
