Technomancer Wizard Hoodie

1 04 2012

 

Ok, I totally need this. Really. I could finally channel all my vast occult knowledge gleaned from my years of playing Warcraft and rain fine down on people! I really could!

This is an offering from those wacky code monkeys at Think Geek and man is it ever cool!

Wild Mage. Wizard. Sorcerer. Illusionist. Enchanter. Invoker. Necromancer. There are so many words to describe people who wield magical powers. We have one word: badass. Let’s look at your average adventuring party: The fighter swings her greatsword, cleaving through two orcs. Sweet. The rogue pops out of the shadows, backstabbing the hobgoblin. Nice! The ranger fires an arrow through the throat of The Bandit King, right in the middle of his monologue. Love it. The cleric is adept with both a mace and a bandage. Phew! But the wizard sets entire battlefields on fire without so much a singe on his velvet robes.

You have the Will to be a spellcaster in real life, and ThinkGeek is here like a wizened oracle to deliver you the way. Introducing the Technomancer Digital Wizard Hoodie. Donning this unique garment will transform you into a powerful mage ready to blast off spells at a moment’s notice. The sleeves of the Technomancer contain dual accelerometers which sense the movements of your hands. Move them in one of the pre-programmed spell sequences and the sleeves of the hoodie light from within, the internal speaker booms, and the hood illuminates your face in an eerie glow.

Of course, a seasoned wizard has a variety of spells in their repertoire. The Technomancer Hoodie offers ten different spells including fireball, healing, and lightning bolt (lightning bolt, lightning bolt!). Each spell is accompanied by unique light and sound effects powered by the embedded speaker and over two dozen bright multicolored LEDs. Of course, you’ll have to train daily to learn the right sequence of movements to cast each spell. We hear the College of Winterhold is accepting applications.

Welcome 2012

3 01 2012

Happy New Year Everyone!

So, has anyone else made resolutions? I prefer to set goals for the year. Here are a few of mine. If you have any you want to share, please do so.

  • Get rid of the rest of the books. 

I’ve gotten my book collection down to a manageable level but I still have far too many. My goal is to have only one bookshelf full by the end of the year. I have a digital copy of every single book I possible could have and have stored copies on a hard drive so my Kindle isn’t overloaded. As it is, if I live to be 150 I will never get through all the new books I have yet to read….and that is if I stop today. Oh well, I can think of worse problems to have.

  • Improve my health.

I know I’m a geek but running through Azaroth and killing Orcs does NOT equal a fitness program. I need to actually step away from the computer (shudder) every now and then and actually venture outside. I actually live in a really cool place. I’m not out on my porch for 5 minutes before I see other humans actually walking around. Kids play, pets roam. The last place I lived I never ever saw that. In 20 years I never saw kids playing outside. Spooky. Anyway, my goal is to get in a walk at least every other day. Outside. I’ll take my phone. LOL. Me without technology is NOT pretty.

  • Go to church more often

Bet you didn’t see THAT coming, did you? Yes, the resident Techno-Geek, holder of advance science degrees is a Christian. It’s okay; I’m Catholic. That means I’m from the branch that believes in Evolution, Medicine and all of the other advantages of the 21 century. I’m also a firm believer that a healthy spiritual life is as important as a healthy body and education. It’s all about balance my friends.

  • Read more books

Again, it’s about balance. A little less time sitting in front of the computer screen and a little more time sitting and…oh, wait. Anyway, reading on my Kindle is a good break from the instant communication world of the Internet. Oh, heck, who am I kidding? I just need to get some of the books read so I can buy more.

Well that’s it for now. See you all soon!





Angry Birds Pork Rinds: It’s about time!

1 04 2011

This is one of those things that I didn’t realize I wanted until I saw them. This is even better than microwave pork rinds (which I still don’t grasp).

From the website:
Need to make three stars on every level of Angry Birds? Then you’d better pop open a can of Tiger Blood and a bag of Angry Birds Pork Rinds! Taste the crisp, salty, inspiring, savory flavor that only green pigs can produce.


Get them before the lawyers beat you to them! You can find them, where else, but over at Think Geek.





Think Geek does it again!

1 04 2010

Once the moodInq canvas is implanted, you can change your tattoo in less than five minutes. Choose from professional artwork or upload your own files, run the moodInq Wand over your canvas, and voila! New tattoo!
Another hit from those Code Monkeys over at ThinkGeek!
You know, I think I just might need one of these. 




Visomate Vision and Posture Reminder

11 07 2009

Unless Mom pays you to be her personal assistant, your boss probably doesn’t nag you much about your bad computer posture — that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be mindful of it. Propped on your PC, this $26 ultrasonic sensor lets you know whether your back, neck and eyes are at a proper position and distance from the computer. Red light means you’re too close, blue light means you’re in the recommended range. Just remember our helpful rhyme: “Flashing red, back up your head. Flashing blue, no scoliosis for you.”

Ok, even I have to admit this is weird. But it’s a gadget and I’ll bet no one you know has one!





A Techno-Geek Watch

22 05 2009

This watch is an innovative and especially Geeky gadget that actually gives accurate time as long as you can read the 28 LED’s that illuminate in sequence to tell the current time, day of the week, and date. You may think that this cool looking watch is hard to use, but honestly it is easier than you can imagine. Arabic numbers are used for hours and tens of minutes while Mayan numerals are used for the numbers 1 through 9, which are engraved into the case beside the LED. You can amaze your friends by telling them the time and letting them try to decipher it without giving them the specifics. To learn more or purchase click here.





Bionic Contacts

15 01 2009

The University of Washington’s Babak Parviz has created a prototype “bionic” contact lens that creates a display over the wearer’s visual field, so images, maps, data, etc., appear to float in midair. The lens works using tiny LEDs, which are powered by solar cells, and a radio-frequency receiver.
