To those who have geeks for friends, consider yourself saved ‘cause Friday has uncovered all the best gifts that you can possibly give to your geeky pal.
The good thing is these gifts don’t even cost much (they’re less than $100) and they’re really, really, REALLY cool. You might even want them for yourselves.
So what exactly is it? Well, it’s only frozen smoke. That’s right. How did that happen? Aerogel is made of 96% air. How cool/geeky is that? Holding one would be like holding, well, nothing and poking one just feels like poking an ordinary Styrofoam.
Aside from that, aerosol is also an awesome insulator and it can withstand dynamite blasts of two pounds. HOW AWESOME IS THAT???
Another truly amazing substance is gallium. It’s number 31 on the periodic table. The really cool thing about gallium that will practically blow your mind is its melting point. Holding a solid piece of gallium in your hand can make the entire thing melt. Why? Your body heat is enough to turn it into a puddle of metal.
Once it’s out of your hand, it turns solid again. Plus, it’s not poisonous at all. Don’t eat it though. LOL. Oh, and you can also make a mirror through gallium.
Watch how this guy turns gallium into a replica of his key.
This item is obviously perfect for eco-friendly geeks and even a few hipsters who actually care. An EcoSphere is actually really amazing. This glass ball holds shrimp, algae, and some bacteria in seawater.
All you need to do is put the EcoSphere in a place filled with sunlight and the little ecosystem will continue to thrive for years. Isn’t that totally awesome? Well, at least I think it is. LOL.
This is basically how it works:
If those nerds can’t be satisfied with these awesome gifts, screw them. Ha ha! No real geek will hate any of this stuff, I assure you. Happy Holidays, everybody!
