ThinkGeek iCade 8-Bitty

iCade 8-Bitty

The ThinkGeek iCade 8-Bitty is a classic styled, pocketable D-Pad style controller for your iPad, iPhone, or Android device.

With 4 face buttons, select, start, and two shoulder buttons, plus the D-Pad for movement, the 8-Bitty also features Bluetooth connectivity for gaming on the go.

It’s fully compatible with all iCade games, so there’s plenty of gaming options right out of the box, and as more and more people buy these external controllers for their mobile gaming, expect even more game developers to add support.

…ThinkGeek makes the best flying saucer?

Micro R/C Flying Saucer

ThinkGeek’s Black Stealth 3-Channel R/C Helicopter is a fun way to start flying, but if you really want to be in control, then check out their Micro R/C 4-Channel Flying Saucer.

Described as “the smallest, most sophisticated R/C flying vehicle around”, it gives you control over altitude, direction and rotation, and features a solid-state accelerometer that senses tilt on two axes and adjusts the power of each propeller to keep the Flying Saucer rock solid in the sky.

In addition, a built in automatic trim means no trim dials or buttons to adjust, so you just power-cycle the remote before you begin to fly, and the Flying Saucer references the accelerometer to auto trim itself.

…It’s Things Thursday: Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets?

Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets

The Miracle Fruit (AKA the Miracle Berry) is a food that makes other sour and bitter foods taste sweet.


By bonding the protein miraculin to your taste buds (or something like that; science isn’t too sure) the Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets can change the way foods taste for up to an hour.

Though the obvious test is to grab a lemon and chomp away like some sort of crazed mad man, another option is to order a pack of the tablets, gather a bunch of strong tasting foods, invite some friends over and host a “flavor tripping” party.

Whatever you decide to do with them, a pack of 20 servings will set you back just $20 from ThinkGeek, so order a set and start tripping today!

…It’s Things Thursday: Black Stealth 3-Channel R/C Helicopter?

Black Stealth RC Copter

I’ve played with one of these small R/C copters before, so I can vouch for the fun that can be had with one of them, but ThinkGeek’s Black Stealth 3-Channel R/C Helicopter looks like it opens up a whole new world of possibilities with full 3-channel control.

Unlike most small R/C copters (like the one that I played with) which can only be controlled on two channels (up and down and rotate right and left), the ThinkGeek copter gives you full 3 channel control over up and down, rotate right and left, and move forwards and backwards.

In addition to the extra channel of control, the ThinkGeek copter features a dial trim adjuster (rather than the buttons that you find on most copter controls) for precise trim adjustments, and counter-rotating blades for amazing hover ability and stability.

The copter charges in just 10 minutes, and you get a full 7 minutes of play time out of a single charge, so you’ll never be left empty handed, and you can even change channels and fly with a friend, since each features two different channels that you can program it to.

All that fun for just $29.99?

I’ll take two.
