Merry Pixelmas!

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or any other of the myriad of End-of-Year holidays (or none at all, for that matter) one things is true: if you’re a geek, you love/crave/gotta have sweet geek loot. Be you a collector of comics, a hoarder of Hylian artifacts, a proponent of the PlayStation 3, a dastardly DM, a fan of Farscape, a connoisseur of Conan, or an aficionado of all things Aliens, you KNOW you have a deep-seated desire for the one gift to rule them all this holiday season.

Well here at PixelatedGeek, we’re no different, and we’ve put together a list of our most coveted childlike-squeal-of-glee inducing Perfect Holiday Gifts, one in a (relatively) reasonable price range, and one so far from the pale of believability as to require an in-flight meal. Feel free to throw in your two-cents in the comments section, or love, hate, adore, mock or drool all over our selections.

Without too terribly much in the way of ado, here we go!

Canon Thermal Mug Lens

I’ve always called my big camera lens a thermos. I guess its a standard joke among photographers.  During this year’s Winter Olympics, media personnel were given this cool piece of swag.  A Canon photo lens that is actually a thermal mug. Today, Vistek is letting us regular non Olympic media folk pre-order these cool mugs for $29.99.  They start shipping out on April 16th.

Old School Drunkeness

Remember that one time when you were at that one party?  Ya know… the party where you wrote your name on your cup with a Sharpie, but the condensation made it come off, so you were forced to guess which cup was yours and hope you weren’t wrong? Yeah, that one.  Well no worries, just take these Classic Atari Pint Glasses to your next shindig and you’ll always remember you were drinking from the Missile Command cup, NOT the Centipede cup.

At $40, these cups are slightly more expensive than one would hope, but kind of too awesome to pass up if you’re an Atari fan.

Put Something Mighty In Your Pants

Posted by: |

Sick and tired of all the latest video games and gadgets burning a hole in your wallet? Sounds like it’s time to get a tougher wallet.*

Dynomighty Design’s Mighty Wallets are, well… mighty. They’re made from Tyvek®, the same material express mail envelopes are made of, and are completely water and tear resistant. These have been around for a while, but they recently introduced a couple new designs that instantly appealed to my inner-nerd. I really love the “Color Bar” and “Dot Matrix” designs featured above, and with over 25 designs, I’m sure you’ll find one to help you display your own geek-pride at the checkout counter.

*DISCLAIMER: Mighty Wallets won’t actually stop video games and gadgets from burning a hole in your wallet. It’s just a figure of speech, after all. Try some self-control and discipline, why don’t you?!
