It’s a proven fact that 95% of us here at Synthesis are complete nerds. I mean if Daniel Taylor spent as much time trying to find a cure for cancer as he does looking up conspiracy theories about God knows what, the entire world would be cured within hours.
I was doing a little geeking out today on the ThinkGeek online shop, and I wanted to turn you on to some super 1337 shit that I found.
First up is a sick little USB device known simply as the USB LED Beverage Cooler. This single can cooler uses USB power to chill a can of your favorite nerd fuel, which is probably Mountain Dew. It’s moderately priced at $19.99, so even if you spent all your hard earned money buying Warcraft gold, you can still afford to have your drink a few centigrades colder.
The big refrigerator in your office cools a lot of stuff. Food, science experiments once known as food, and your secret stash…of drinks. Of drinks! But what happens when you just want one can at your desk and you want it cold? Well, plug in this small single-can beverage cooler into a USB port and chill a can on your desk. Then you won’t have to get up to get your drink.
Next up, we have a great way to fuck with your coworkers. Here’s the Phantom Keystroker V2, and it’s no bigger than a thumb drive. The Keystroker can be set to make mouse movements, random keyboard garbage text and other annoyances, with additional controls to set the time between the ‘events’. The best part? This little unit will only put you back #12.99.
The Keystroker emulates a keyboard and mouse and periodically makes random mouse movements, toggles caps-lock and types out odd garbage text and phrases. Switches on the side allow you to choose between keyboard garbage typing, caps lock-toggle, annoying mouse movements or all three. An adjustment dial sets the duration between “events”. We recommend you don’t set it too frequently so as to extend the agony. Your hapless co-worker pal will think his computer has been possessed or infected by a destructive virus. As he writhes in anger and furiously dials tech support you can rest easy with a job well done.
I could go on forever, but I think I’m going to stop at 3 for this edition of Nerd Stuff. For the alcoholic nerds among us, I present to you the Chugalug Fridge Drink Mixer. This slick little device allows you to poor in 2 or more drinks, cool them down with the built in ice pods and watch the whole thing happen through the translucent plastic. Again, this sucker is cheap at $19.99.
