Culture: New ThinkGeek Finds; From Pickle Rick Sleeping Bag To Phaser Controlled Rock Light

ThinkGeek is always full of great products, this time we found two great mood lights, some out of this world earbuds, and fun Pickle Rick Sleeping Bag.


Star Trek TOS Phaser-Controlled Rock Mood Light:



Let’s chat about “The Enemy Within” from Star Trek: The Original Series. Everybody focuses on the dog. Or how Other Kirk treats Yeoman Rand. But we’re here to remember Mister Sulu’s situation: with Alfa 177 headed for 120° below zero, he and the landing party are stuck on the planet with nothing but blankets, phasers, and rocks. So you know what we’re in for: huddling under blankets next to rocks superheated by phasers.

And while rocks can hold heat for a while which is what makes hot stone massage so relaxing, in our own attempts we haven’t managed to make one hot enough to glow. But we do have the next best thing: a “rock” that glows when you point a “phaser” at it.

It’s a rock-shaped shell with an LED inside that comes with an I/R remote shaped like a Type-1 phaser. What that means is that in Survival mode, you can fire your phaser at this rock and it will glow red. Not hot. You’ll have to use your imagination there. And as soon as you stop firing, it dims. Just like on the show.

But wait. There’s more. We predict the Atmosphere mode will make you say, “Oh my!” With five different settings, you can choose to have your rock glow one color, cycle through colors, glow with maximum brightness, or dim over a period of ten minutes to allow you to drift peacefully off to sleep and have sweet dreams of boldly going where no one has gone before.

Star Trek Wireless Vulcan Earbuds:



Don’t call it a comeback
I been here for years
With my pointy ears and havin no fear
Cryin no tears (well, some) like a Farr – Pon
Listen to the Kirk go KHAAAAAAAAAAAN!
Emotion, overpowerin
Despite my detachment, I’m glowerin
Romulans stop, when I drop these lyrics that’ll make you gimme props
Evil chin hair, I can disprove
Don’t ever compare
Me to the rest that’ll all be sliced by a plot device
My mind meld’s also real nice

I’m gonna Spock you out.
Mama said Spock you out.

So you don’t HAVE to listen to LL Cool J while wearing these, but we’re just sayin’. Maybe use these Spock-ear earbuds to jam to some Vulcan lute or take a call. Or perhaps their inspiration will help you tap into some of that Vulcan cool when you’re on the phone with your cable company (if you still have one of those… ours brings us the Interwebs). They come with 3 sizes of silicone eartips, and you can use them for 4-5 hours on a single charge (depending on the volume). We’re going to wear ours when we go running, because watching people do a double-take is fun.

Rick and Morty Pickle Rick Sleeping Bag:



Pickle Rick: Uh, here’s something that’s never happened before: I’m a pickle. I’m Pickle Rick!
Morty: Are you going to, I mean, you know, is this the first part of some magic trick?
Pickle Rick: I don’t do magic, Morty, I do science. One takes brains, the other takes dark eyeliner.
Morty: Well, can you move? Can you fly?
Pickle Rick: I wouldn’t be much of a pickle if I could.
Morty: All right, well, do pickles live forever or –
Pickle Rick: Morty, stop digging for hidden layers and just be impressed. I’m a pickle.
– “Pickle Rick”

We all have things we don’t want to do, right? It’s high time you turned yourself into Pickle Rick to get out of attending awkward family therapy or going to stupid class or having to run boring errands. Pack this Pickle Rick sleeping bag and take off for another dimension – one in which you sleep. A lot.

It’s not just a sleeping bag. It’s also a great costume. No, you can’t move in, but then that’s kind of the point when you’re a pickle. Just make sure you have somebody around to help you change back. Maybe not so much with a random syringe as with the double zippers.
