I’m not at all happy that it has been nearly a year since I’ve been able to watch some new Stranger Things episodes. If you are trying to hold out until the new season debuts in 2019, perhaps playing with some geeky toys will help tide you over.
Boston Dynamics continues to crank out creepy robots of questionable value to humanity. We’ve seen its SpotMini robot navigate around a warehouse before, looking for human souls to consume and heads to wear. Now the quadruped is doing something even more scary – dancing to Uptown Funk.
Looking to take your Christmas tree lights to the next level this holiday season? While there are already plenty of LED light strings on the market, the ones I’ve seen in stores generally offer very basic color selections.

These ornaments mixed with some Star Wars or Star Trek ships and a Doctor Who TARDIS will make your tree into a science-y sci-fi scene that will have Santa excited to visit again next year.

We recently told you guys about LiteZilla, a sweet giant-size Lite-Brite that I wish I could have in my game room. Alas, I can’t afford one for my house, but I did recently get a chance to play with a LiteZilla up close and personal, and it’s pretty awesome.
Take note, sneaker collectors. Game Boy Air Jordans are here. They may not have a cartridge slot, but these kicks look great. Johnny Barry’s Freaker Sneaks produces super-small runs of custom sneakers and fans can’t get enough of them.
Candles are good because they make your room smell nice… and because fire. But if you want to mess with people who like candles, you might want to get some of these to give your friends at the office Christmas party that will be here before you know it.
