W2 products has a nice selection of other Pantone® items for sale, like full size mugs and even laptop bags. A little pricey (the set of 4 esspresso cups is £29.52), but hey, is anything Pantone® cheap? Check it Out!

The only good thing about April Fool’s on the web is…

We all know it's April 1st. everyone is on alert, youtube links are most likely rickrolled, and digg becomes amazingly more worthless and irrelevant than normal. However, not all is lost on the web. Each April fools, ThinkGeek publishes a fake front page, featuring amazing and incredible new geek toys that, well, really are incredible. thinkgeekaprilfools.jpg Last year, the most prominent item was the 8-bit tie, which after a well planned flood of demands to the TG email boxes, was realized and put on sale later in the year. This year, it goes to the defendius, an innovative chain lock designed by art.lebedev, and intended to help keep your precious and rare date inside your lair of love. [disclaimer from TG: ThinkGeek does not condone forced captivity - no matter how desperate you are.] defendius_web.jpg Product features:
  • Chain style Doorlock forces you to solve a maze to exit
  • 100% Titanium Alloy Construction
  • 8" chain
  • 10 mounting screws included (2 extra)
  • Tested to 700lbs of force.
  • This innovative lock is designed by Art Lebedev Studio… responsible for the amazing Optimus Maximus keyboard with a tiny screen on each key. Constructed of 100% titanium alloy, nothing less than a level forty-two spell of ultimate cutting will break the Defendius lock open. Really, just look at it: no one is getting out easily. You'll have to guide the lock nib through the labyrinth before you can open to door. There is only one solution, so no cheating will help. Maybe when confronted with the Defendius Labyrinth Security Lock, your date will reconsider your offer of playing the game of love in co-op mode. And don't worry, these locks were tested by robots and confirmed to be the strongest lock commercially available. So, install a Defendius Labyrinth Security Lock today, and make sure your next date gets to the bonus level.
Here's the thing: defendius was actually designed by art.lebedev, prank or not. If you want this one for reals... bomb this email address [mailbox -at- artlebedev.com].

What Kind of Geek Are You?

Page four-dee-too of April's Wired features a "field guide to the identification of unique species in the nerd underground." Here's the description for "gadget guy," the type I most feel associated with.. The Gadget Guy
  • Disposition: Sociable while waiting in line on launch day; ferocious in comments on Gizmodo. Seemingly unflappable in the face of early adopter's remorse (AKA Apple Newton Syndrome).
  • Beliefs: I can fix that. There's no god but Macgyver. The price will drop in a month but I need it now.
  • Turn-ons: Unboxing videos. Backup batteries. Blue LEDs. Laser pointers. People who RTFM. Things that make loud clicking sounds.
What kind of Geekster are you? Be sure to pick up April's Wired, its a good read (as always) and features an in-depth article on the battle of Gizmodo vs Engadget and why Brian Lam is such a jerk. If you don't subscribe to Wired, you really should, its the common denominator between all types of geek.

tentacle_01.jpg For those times when a bitch slap just simply won't do, Gaia has given us the opportunity to stick it to 'em right, literally. The Tentacle Arm is 100% polyester, looks like plush on the backside with the underarm riddled with plenty of suction cups to let everyone know you mean business. Pick it up for $15.00.

Flickr: Scientific Ink

This brought my attention as I have most recently locked in an appointment with Randall at Divine Machine to get a tattoo for my birthday (Jan 16). I'm shying away from the normal tribal fare, and my goals are to get a design that matches what I am and what I do.  Possible choices are a copy of my Buffawhat logo, with a copyright tag, or perhaps the rooster from my favorite clothing line, Whiteboy. Whatever it will be, I completely identify with these science and Math geeks whose ink only further labels them into geekdom: flickrset.jpg This flickr set stemmed from a old post by Carl Zimmer, as he was wondering "how scientists tattoo themselves with their science." He got a great number of responses and a few months later dropped this set. I think I favor the DNA tattoos myself.

Dosugus: A Pillow with no fluff(aero) all stuff(dir)

tlodpyhv.jpg Now here's an item from Art.Lebedev that you can actually get the day they launch it.   The DOSUGUS pillow, nothing much too it, just a loverly dos screen spilling out the content of teh "C:\" on a plush black pillow.  Pick this up and you can cuddle with in in anticipation of the delivery of that Optimus Maximus Keyboard you re-mortgaged your house to buy. I'm sure most people will puzzle at the beauty of this, as DOS has been phased out of the common functions these days, reserved only for those who truly appreciate it. A bit of nostalgia eh?
