Cinephiles and tech-heads have been known to go to great measures to own the latest, cutting edge items. Whether they wait in long lines or shell out top dollar, there are some items that are essential to their enjoyment of home entertainment or their movie-going experience. But do they really need all this stuff? Especially considering that 11 times out of 10, these gadgets make people look like huge geeks.
There’s only one person who can pull this off, and his name is Dick Tracy. However, Dick Tracy’s watch is infinitely cooler because of its Skype capabilities. This dorky little doodad boasts 8GB of internal flash memory as well as a full color 1.8″ screen and is made completely from shiny stainless steel for the ultimate in
style and coolness not rusting when you cry your nerd tears upon it. Honestly, you can wait until you get in front of a television to watch the latest episode of Alphas.
Are you frustrated that your movie-viewing experience doesn’t make you look Lawnmower Man-y enough? You can breathe a sigh of relief because the future of home entertainment is here. The Sony 3D Head Mounted Display uses twin HD OLED displays as well as 5.1 surround sound for an entirely immersed viewing experience, and utilizes a sleek, space age design to make you look like an absolute dinkus.
Of course, there also needs to be a gadget that makes you look geeky while enjoying a snack at the movies. The Darth Vader Bread Imprinting Toaster is exactly what it sounds like, a toaster that imprints the image of Darth Vader on your tuna melts. Not only is this really, really nerdy but it’s also an obvious sign that there are no lengths to which George Lucas won’t go in order to make money. Go ahead and buy one now but be forewarned, about two years from now another will be released that creates toast of a much crispier quality.
