Knowledge, they say, is power. Power to do good or ill, power to create or destroy, power to change the world! All that power, though, cannot defeat even the weakest of the nuclear forces: gravity. Or can it? Look at this stack of books... How is it staying up? Is it glue? Velcro? Tractor beams? The secret is a simple and clever little device called the Hidden Bookshelf! An L-shaped wedge of metal holds your books up against the wall while a tiny clip holds the inside cover of the book up, giving your larger books the illusion of sticking to the wall as if by magic! Of course, you're smarter than most and know that there's no such thing as magic. Still, those more impressionable people out there will still be blown away by your apparent mastery of space and time!
Electronic Bubble Wrap Keychain
One of the single greatest gifts (and curses) to anyone who is a little anal retentive is bubble wrap. Sure it's good for protecting packages, but the real joy is popping each and every bubble. You can't let even one survive or your mission as bubble popper has failed. But what happens when you desire the joy of popping bubble wrap but don't have the time to invest in popping a full 60' roll? Welcome to the future, my friends; electronic bubble wrap is here. Each keychain device has 8 rubbery little "bubble" buttons. They have a pretty close tactile feel to actual bubble wrap. Guess what happens when you push one? That's right, you hear a little pop. In a nutshell, that is the simple beauty of the electronic bubble wrap keychain. But there is one bonus, and here's where the OCD can kick in a little. Every 100th "pop" is not a pop at all, but a silly sound: a boing, a bark, a rude noise, etc. And since you can easily pop (pun intended) the keychain in your pocket, you'll always have bubble wrap when you need it most (you know, like when your boss starts talking). Dimensions: 1.75" x 1.5" x 0.5"

How many times has the following scenario happened to you? You wake up late and have to compress your morning routine into a matter of minutes. In order to get fed and clean, you shower and eat breakfast at the same time. You close your eyes to prevent soap from getting in, and lather up. Too bad you grabbed some bacon instead of the soap; now you are even greasier than before your shower. You feel nasty, but smell delicious. And that's how you have to go to work. Just think: if you had some Bacon Soap you could have that scent of bacon, without risking all the microbes associated with rubbing your naked body with raw pork products. And now you finally can have that Bacon Soap you've longed for all these years. It's marbled like real bacon. It smells like real bacon. And while it doesn't taste like real bacon (trust us), it sure does a body good. A dirty body, that is. Pick up a few bars for you and your friends. Each bar of Bacon Soap comes in a retro, metal tin, which makes it look great near your sink and perfect for gift giving. Bacon Soap - because bacon belongs in your bath! For ingredients, click here.

Hidden Wall Safe
The Hidden Wall Safe is handy because most burglars spend less than six minutes inside a victim's home and only have time to check the most obvious places for valuables. These unique wall safes allow you to hide valuables inside one of many identical looking wall outlets you already have in your home, the last place someone is likely to look. According to the Chicago Police these units are better than a locked safe and a hundred times cheaper. Worried about the outlet cover not matching your other outlets? No sweat, you can interchange any standard plug cover for this one to match your other plugs.
Geeks are notorious for collecting small and expensive things. Usually electronic, but sometimes they are mineral in nature. The point is, they are valuable - either monetarily, or with emotional significance, and they need to be kept safe. Your stuff could just as easily be someone else's stuff - all it takes is a appropriately awesome object worth stealing, and a really cruddy job of locking it up. What are you thinking, sticking it in a safe? What nonsense! Where's a thief going to look first? That's right - your safe. Stupid. Hiding in plain sight - that's what you need to do. We've glued two random hardcover books together, drilled out several hundred pages, and boom-shanka! You've got the perfect hiding space for nearly 80 cubic inches of stuff. Place these books crammed full of treasure on your bookshelf, and nobody will be the wiser.

Blade Runner Style LED Umbrella
Early in the 21st Century, the Tyrell Corporation advanced robot evolution into the Nexus phase - a being virtually identical to a human - known as a Replicant. They're all around you, even now.

With a push of a button, the shaft lights up, illuminating you and your path.
