Dreamlights Fireflies in a Jar
"As the days get longer, and the nights get warmer, people are venturing outside their doors and enjoying the moonlight. As they walk down streets and paths, the flickering lights of fireflies are hard to miss. During some summers, trees would light up with more fireflies than there were stars in the heavens, turning the whole sky upside-down. As kids, many of us ran through our parents' back yards, collecting fireflies in jars. They'd flicker inside, blinking out their little buggy code to each other. We would wonder what their bioluminescent blinkenlights were actually saying. Were they discussing the merits of Proust? Perhaps engaging in a rabid defense of French Existentialist poetry in an age of materialism and excess. No - nothing that heady. In fact, their gentle flickering communicates their ability to mate and their location - the entomological equivalent of ""Hey baby! Yo! Over here, good-lookin'! Yo!"" Of course, unless you're an 8-year old boy, or an entomologist, bugs are kinda icky, so handling them may not be your favorite thing to do. Also, there's the cruelty factor of shaking a jar full of bugs giving them tiny buggy concussions in an effort to stimulate their bioluminescence simply for the joy of a child who, in a few short minutes, will lose interest in favor of their Nintendo DS and some new Pokemon title. So where bugs fail us, robots fill in. These robots come in the form of tiny LEDs inside a frosted glass lantern. During the day, the lantern soaks up the energy of the sun, and during the night the little robot bugs glow, flickering and throbbing like real fireflies. You can set them to glow as long as they have power, or only when you shake the lantern. Don't worry about harming the little fellas - they aren't real. Your karma is safe. So traipse across your moonlit garden again, like you did when you were a kid. Set it on your night stand to offer a soft soothing glow while you sleep, or just take a walk using the lantern as cool illumination as you go. The fireflies won't mind - in fact, they'll probably come to check out the hot little robotic numbers inside. Ooh yeah, baby. Features Glass lantern full of flickering LED ""fireflies"" Rechargeable solar batteries keep your lights going for many hours Switchable to glow when it gets dark, or when you shake the jar Soothing light that's cruelty free! 4 inches in diameter, 5 3/4 inches tall"
Fireflies in My Room
"As wee geeks, we had stick-on, glow-in-the-dark stars in our bedrooms. They sounded really cool, but in reality, they never quite got charged up enough to glow very brightly. It was a bit let-down.

Now your wee geek can enjoy an enchanting show of glistening fireflies in their room! Install the seven fireflies on their seven leaves throughout the bedroom.

Magic Wand - Programmable TV Remote
You know you have always wanted to be a wizard. But not one of those swish and flick wizards from the movies. You want to be the Dungeons & Dragons wizard - the party's controller. See that word there? CONTROLLER. It means you control the battlefield; you control everything! Sure, you're squishy and sometimes there's collateral damage when you let out a blast, but it's all in a day's work...
Lumadot LED Umbrella
This umbrella is one of our favorite things. For starters, like all good umbrellas should, it keeps you out of the rain. Well, not really. It doesn't actually teleport you from a rainy location to a non-rainy location. Our inventing monkeys are hard at work developing that technology, it may be a few months before we get it perfected. Sadly, we've lost a few Customer Service temps during product testing. We really hope we'll bump into them again on whatever plane or timeline we accidentally sent them. But what this umbrella does (besides keeping you dry) is pretty awesome. With the flick of a switch, it is transformed from a boring black umbrella to a black umbrella with glowing blue raindrops all over it. Flick the switch further and those raindrops will blink! It's deliciously geeky (what geek doesn't like LEDs?) but it's also pretty, which makes it a great gift for the lady in your life who may not be geeky. Buying yourself some cool gadgets and witty t-shirts and don't feel like making a separate purchase for Mother's Day or your girlfriend's birthday? The Lumadot LED Umbrella comes to the rescue! Stay dry, stay safe, and look cool doing it.
8-Bit Hair Bow by ThinkGeek
You were a gamer before they made pink controllers. Heck, you were a gamer before there were female characters. When it was revealed that Samus Aran was a girl, you cheered while your brother stared slack-jawed at the screen. If you do play a female character in a game it's because you like her moves, not because she's the only female option... Brought to you by ThinkGeek.

Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt
Here at ThinkGeek we were just wishing for a fully playable guitar built into a t-shirt when along came the Pixie of ROCK... she wailed with face melting guitar solo and *POOF* there it was in our hands...The Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt. We turned on the mini amp, cranked the volume to 11 and started to rock. As the Pixie explained, the Electronic Guitar Shirt is incredibly easy to play because each button on the neck is a major chord...
Lazer Shirt Interactive Tee
The problem with regular t-shirts is that they're always the same. If you got a shirt with Darth Vader on it, it will always have Darth Vader on it. No matter how hard you wish, you can't turn it into a shirt featuring Boba Fett. It just won't happen, Wisher, so stop wishing. Stop wishing and get a Lazer Shirt. Lazer Shirts are interactive white t-shirts that let you design your own creation with the power of UV light. Simply touch the ultraviolet Lazer to the shirt, press the button, and draw or write whatever you want. Step into the darkness and your shirt will glow, displaying your creative genius. When the design finally fades, you can use your UV light to draw something totally new. And even though your Lazer Shirt is magical, you can still toss it in the washing machine like every other t-shirt. Product Specifications Create your own temporary glow-in-the-dark designs on your shirt Note: Despite what the photo may lead you to believe, the t-shirt is in fact white in hue. Included UV Lazer will charge the glowy material of the shirt Touch the laser to the shirt and draw or write whatever you want Turn out the lights to see your design glow Lose your UV Lazer?

Laser Stars Projector
"Caution: This product is more amazing in real life than on a two dimensional website As you should well know here at ThinkGeek we are constantly striving to find tools for you, our loyal customers, to aid in your quest for World Domination. But we also want to encourage you to come up with schemes to conquer the entire Universe (and any parallel universes you might stumble across while conquering this one). And to properly conquer the known Universe, you'll need a a nice reliable star map. The Laser Stars Projector is not that map, but it sure does seem like one. And the second most important thing a Universe conqueror might do besides conquering Universes is seeming to conquer Universes. Keeps you buttered up for the real thing. Ok, carrying on then... When you turn off your lights and turn this unit on - trust us - you will be bamboozled with star rapture. That's the only way we can describe it. Everybody who has seen the Laser Stars Projector in action at the ThinkGeek headquarters has at least one 'Oh My Gods, that's Frakking brilliant!' moment. But ThinkGeek, what IS the Laser Stars Projector really? It's a unit about 10inches tall that projects a combination of green laser stars and blue (slightly ultraviolet-ish blue) clouds onto your ceiling, walls, pets, etc. Both the clouds and the stars are constantly moving and morphing, just like a proper Universe should. And there are literally thousands of green laser stars to look at. There are two ways you can adjust your Laser Stars Projector, first you can pivot the projector itself 180 degrees horizontally around the base so that you can control *where* it is projecting in your room. It can literally fill up an entire ceiling and portions of several walls at once. And the other thing you can adjust is the intensity of the blue gaseous clouds, from zero to full intensity. ThinkGeek, I'm a techie. How does it really work? The Laser Stars Projector utilizes a state of the art Diode Pumped, Solid State (DPSS) green laser combined with custom developed multiphase diffractive holographic optics, super luminous diodes and precision motors to produce the laser stars effect. The coherent light produced by the DPSS laser passes through a passive diffractive holographic optical element, which in turn passes through a circular periodicity electromechanical wheel, which is driven by a precision motor to create the soothing motion of the star field. So there. Hurry, get one before your friends do. Then plug it in, turn it on, and tune out... Features: Uses Green Laser and Holographic technology 2 built-in precision glass lenses Creates thousands of stars with or without blue cloud formations Ac Adapter Included (US Only - 120V) Unit Dimensions: 10"" tall x 9"" wide x 7"" deep Please note: It's difficult to portray what the Laser Stars Projector projects here in images because it works best in the dark. The images tend to mute the green stars and exaggerate the blue clouds a bit. But we've tried our b..."
