The term geek can mean a lot of things. However, one thing is for sure – most geeks have an affinity for owning the latest gadgets. So, here is a list of four gadgets that are a must for every geek. If you don’t currently own any of these, make sure you get them right away. Otherwise, you’re looking at losing that geek title forever.
As a geek, you probably indulge in a lot of writing, and, like most of us, you’re still doing most of that writing on paper. However, the problem with paper is that you’re going to run out of it at some point in time. Luckily for you, there’s a new product in town that strikes the perfect balance between offering you the convenience of writing on paper and the sustainability of a digital device. It’s called the Wipebook and it’s basically a reusable notebook. You can use the notebook to do all your writing and then upload the content on to Google Drive or Dropbox. Once you’re done, you can wipe out what you’ve written by simply using a wet cloth or by microwaving the notebook.
The Wipebook can be used about 500 times and notes can be “erased” in a single step. 50% of the pages are ruled while the rest are plain sheets. So, you can use the notebook for both, drawing and writing. After that, all you have to do is scan the notes and save them on a cloud-based storage application.
Star Wars Episode VII light-up earbuds
If you’re a music lover who’s always up and about, a reliable and sturdy set of earbuds are something you definitely need. Fortunately, there are plenty of options on the market to help you out. However, most of them tend to be dull and dreary in terms of design.
If you intend to stand out from the crowd, these Star Wars-themed light-up earbuds are the perfect set for you. They come with a First Order Logo that lights up when you put the earphones to use. The red and black color scheme just adds to the style.
They’re also quite comfortable and stay in place even with a few jerks and bounces.
You can buy them on ThinkGeek for about $11.
