Get your Geek on with these stylish, fresh and elegant Gadgets. Here’s our Geek Gadgets of the Week:
Flip On/Off Alarm Clock
Recognizing that most people are absolutely useless in the mornings (or after a nap), the Flip Alarm Clock dispenses with complicated settings and control panels. Lightweight and colorful, it’s the clock that keeps things simple.
Featuring a big bold design, there are two sides to this timepiece – ON and OFF – meaning you just flip it to the side you need. The technology inside will recognize which end is up and alert you as requested.
With this clever clock, you’ll always know what time it is, and you won’t need to throw your alarm across the room to make it shut up.
Dimensions: 10.5cm(W) x 2.9cm(H) x 6.5cm(D)
Superhero Caped Socks
Geeks and sports don’t come together often, but when they do, it’s a thing of beauty. For a sports-related reason which shall remain unnamed, these socks became amazingly popular all of a sudden. You basically couldn’t find them any place online except eBay. Where you could expect to pay a couple hundred for them. Instead of dropping a couple thousand dollars to get y’all socks of questionable provenance (and cleanliness), we opted to wait until the supplier had more in, and they’re here now. Not as in-demand. Also, not several hundred dollars. We think it’s a fair trade-off.

The Amazing Desktop Dinosaur Plant
This one-of-a-kind plant has lived on the Earth for over 290 million years and has the ability to “come back to life” (much like the undead) over and over again for hundreds of years! Simply place this seemingly dead ball of foliage in water and within hours it transforms into a vibrant green blood-sucking evergreen. Ok, we are kidding about the blood-sucking part. It’s still amazing though! It’s also great for lazy folks since you can forget to water your Dinosaur plant whenever you want! It will simply dry up and hibernate for up to fifty years and will spring to life every time it is given water.
Some Interesting Tidbits about your Dinosaur Plant:
- During the Carboniferous period these plants used to grow over 120 feet tall (bigger than a T-rex)
- When dry it curls up into a tight ball so that the wind can easily roll it to a new location or cubicle, hopefully closer to moisture.
- Retains 3% of its water when it is dehydrated.
- Grows to be about 4″
- Enjoys life so much it survived the Ice Age
- Live Dinosaur Plant (Selaginella Lepidophylla)
- Bag of genuine Volcanic Lava Rock
- Display Bowl
