Giant Swiss Army Knife from Think Geek
- 999.00 USD
As someone who practically lives online (okay, that just sounds pathetic... how about someone who just types a lot), I take pleasure in fashionable pieces or accessories that find clever ways to poke fun at the modern geek-chic side in all of us. Unlike more kitschy items like Space Invaders socks or iChat pillows, these Tom Binns Quotation Stud Earrings, available at Shopbop, are quirky in a subtle way that doesn't outwardly yell "I'm a total dweeb and I don't care who knows it!" Not like there's anything wrong with that; I'm just saying these studs can actually be worn without embarrassment outside the privacy of your Tetris-decorated apartment. Plus, they'd go great with your gold-plated Twitter necklace (or not)!Price: $88Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add the Tom Binns Quotation Stud Earrings to the Hive.
Anyone who's ever owned a Macbook (or any Apple product, for that matter), has likely fallen in love and surrendered themselves to the iWorld (not a real thing -- don't get excited). Ever since the general public accepted the iPhone as their go-to do-everything phone of choice, I've been seeing Apple-related references all over the place, on and off the touchscreen. iPhone app coasters, iChat speech bubble pillows... and now an F1/F2 Button Lamp Shade?! I gotta say, it's probably one of the cleverest gadget-to-decor adaptations I've seen thus far, and it gets the geeky idea across without looking too gimmicky. For $65, it is just the shade itself, but it's available in either table lamp or ceiling form so you can dress up pretty much any naked Ikea-bought fixtures you may already have in your apartment. Now, if only the light could be programmed with the press of your Macbook brightness key... I'm sure some of you geekier Hivers could figure out how!Price: $65Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add the F1/F2 Lamp Shade to the Hive.
