Nebulophone Mini Arduino Synthesizer Kit
We love the sweet bleeping sound of electronic music. One of our favorite pioneers is Raymond Scott (and if that name doesn't mean anything to you, shame on you and look him up). Apart from his awesome musical output, his inventions reign supreme as some of the coolest things ever created (if only he wouldn't have been so secretive). When we first heard the Nebulophone, it sounded like a bunch of Scott's inventions all crammed into one. Into one easy-to-build, DIY kit, we could love and share with you. So we did. The Nebulophone is freakin' awesome and really fun to play. It's sort of like a Stylophone on crack - you use a stylus to play a note - but that's about where the similarities end. The Nebulophone has all sorts of fun buttons and dials to alter the waveform; adjust decay, portamento, keyboard mapping, and arpeggiation; and so much more. Plus it's got a light controlled analog low-pass filter (adjustable, naturally) that adds even more fun. Our first song created on the Nebulophone is called, "Ty's Goatee" - what's yours? Get a Nebulophone today, enjoy assembling it tomorrow, and begin rocking out the day after. The Nebulophone - so much bleeping fun. IMPORTANT NOTE This is a KIT. Which means that you have to assemble it... which is the way kits typically work. You will need some simple soldering skillz and a screwdriver.

Zumreed X2 Hybrid Headphones
"You pride yourself on your music collection. The more obscure the better! Currently, your jam is a weird South-Uruguayan Bangra-inspired gamelan-and-banjo hip-hop band... their early stuff, naturally - before they went all corporate. You're not stupid, though, and know that not everybody's ears are really ready for that kind of action, so you clamp your cans on your ears, and listen in blissful privacy. But then you notice your officemate - the cutie who's caught your eye from time to time, wearing a concert tee from 'Ko Pe Ko'a Umi"" - the band whose music currently bangs between your ears. With a flick of a switch, your once private-musical interlude bursts forth from the speakers mounted on the outside of your headphones, filling the room with sound. Stopping in their tracks, the object of your desire gives you an almost imperceptible nod of approval. Mission accomplished. Of course, now you'll have to find something else to listen to. Ko Pe Ko'a Umi is so an-hour-ago...

Light Show Fountain Speakers
As geeks, we find Las Vegas to be a fascinating city. For starters, we get to indulge our picky eating habits at giant buffets. Then we can observe legions of people at the slot machines, blissfully and willfully ignorant of the laws of probability. We can collect trading cards from those nice guys in neon t-shirts. (We're sure it's a TCG.) Outside of Treasure Island, we can watch a show about pirates that involves fire and explosions. Then it's off to our favorite casino for some Texas Hold 'Em. If your trip to Vegas isn't complete without the fountain show at the Bellagio, our Light Show Fountain Speakers are relevant to your interests. Plug them into your iPod, mp3 player, or computer via the included USB cable and start up your tunes: the water inside will dance to the beat and the 4 multi-colored LEDs will light up.
