Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet is Geek Overload
I like converged items. I like my phone to work like a computer and a game console for example. I can also appreciate when geeks converge two of their passions into one extra geeky item. Such is the case with the steampunk Stormtrooper helmet we have here today.

Brodmann Blades: Like Playing Ping Pong With Mittens

Zim and Zou’S Paper Game Boy Won’T Let You Play, but Still Looks Cool
This colorful Game Boy isn’t really an customized old school Nintendo Game Boy. Nah. It’s actually completely made out of paper! Well, it sure fooled me. When I first saw this, I tried to remember if they ever came out with a Game Boy in these colors.

God of War Kratos Blade Replica: Destroy Your Real World Enemies…
…or actually, you probably shouldn’t do that. But you still will look awfully cool walking around with this big, bad-ass GoW blade that looks just like the one Kratos slashes his enemies with. This prop-replica of Kratos’ Blade of Chaos is cast from sturdy zinc-aluminum, and has custom etched textures to give it that war-worn look.

Rock Paper Scissors Glove: Computers Don’T Play Games for Fun, They Play to Win.
Maker/Problem-solver Steve Hoefer made an Arduino-based glove that can play Rock Paper Scissors. Why? Why the hell not! You think a nerd would pass up the opportunity to play with a computer?
