Title: Geek toys you would buy if you had too much money
Post by: Bates on November 05, 2006, 08:50:57 pm
omg, just discovered this on the web. A laser-pointer like laser with visible beam, a range of about a hundred miles and the ability to ignite fire and burn holes into stuff. And it's just $1999.99!

What more or less useful tech toys would you like to have?

If I had far too much money to spend responsibly I'd probably buy myself an Optimus Keyboard (http://www.artlebedev.com/everything/optimus/) just because I'm a sucker for input devices.

I'd also buy the moon, which would be pretty cool to have.

Haha! That's the first thing I too was thinking of. Kinda explains my current money situation, eheh...
I've never been very fond of gadgets, but... I've never been good as a hacker, so maybe a key catcher (you know, the little pluggy thing that records everything that's typed with the keyboard) could be ideal. And an evil plan is born!

Seriously... if I had that much money, I'd spend it on other things and just get a "I Never Finish Anyth" t-shirt. ;P

You should put the missile launcher to aim at the red button and get friends to come over. Then just tell them not to push the big red button and wait for it to happen...  >=d

You know, I didnt even read the link when I clicked that. I now know not to click anything he posts however, seeing as I'm at work 80% of the time I post and that's not exactly something I want on my screen at work.

My friend owns three of them, but they didn't cost him $1000+ a piece he got his for 1 psp and $500. They are really awesome, they pop and ballon instantly.

The oversized dildo is VERY funny.

But since there are no people in the picture for reference, how do we know it's oversized? It could be a very small dildo that the evil dildo salesman has made to look like it's oversized on his webpage, so Cerapter would buy it.

You're "special"...

Well, let's see.

1. Those lasers are lame. I bet they won't even burn your eyes out from specular reflection. No weakling Class 3b lasers for me. I want Class 4 ones! Several. In a gatling setup.

2. If I had way too much monies, I would buy at least one Realdoll. I would then dress her up in weird clothes, and put her in a corner of my room as decoration. It would be awesome. Also, people would think me a pervert eccentric*.

3. I want a set of iron and a set of bone dice. These can be found at thinkgeek. I will not bother to search for them. They cost about $30 and $40 respectively. Well within what I can afford, but too costly for a set of dice.

4. A GAU-8/A Avenger would be nice as well.

So, into weaponry already, are we? In that case, sign me up for a couple of Leopard 2s. That should persuade the people downstairs to keep the noise down. The sheer shockwave from the 120mm cannon alone should be enough to shatter most windows nearby.

Depleted Uranium rounds are just super-heavy penetrators with a nice side effect of being pyrophoric. There won't be much of a hole, as the stuff explodes, ignites itself and burns the occupants inside alive. As well as possibly igniting fuel and stuff, causing the vehicle to explode. So yes, in a way, the holes it will make from things coming out will be larger than the hole it makes when coming in.

That mecha-thing (which I have seen video of somewhere) reminded me of one of my dreams. It would be so cool to have full-size customizable simulator someday. I mean one with hydraulics and all. Interiors could be modified as tank, race-car, mecha or plane. By that I mean that control devices were exchangeable. Just thinking how it would feel like to have multiple screens and hydraulic movement of chassis (like full-body force feedback!). Of course it would be custom made but just to think how cool that would be...  ::)

Well, as long he does that only with dolls... On the other hand it might be that he tried to emulate the love swing, neat toy (but not geek) which can be used the way he did with doll. Engineers never cease to amaze me.

Powerballs are really funny. It was surprise to me that they were so fun. But then again, I do like weird stuff. I have no idea are they any good to muscles but it's fun to make it roll and hum. It feels good when it vibrates and hums in hand and sound is quite funny also. To feel that ball jerking, pulling and twitching in it's own rhythm... It's hard to describe. It's getting on muscles of arm really quickly and harder you make it spin harder it gets. I love to make it spin so fast it start hurting and then loosen up the pace. Making it start is not so easy, thou.

Post by: Torp v2.0 on December 31, 2006, 01:49:57 am
Powerballs are not only fun, they're really good training for your wrists, and probably quite allright for your grip. Just rev it up to 9000 rpm or more, and keep it there for a while. I guarantee you will feel it.

And you'll soon learn how to make it start. Actually, your first goal should be to be able to start it without the thread. Just spin the inner ball with your thumb and work on it. It's not only possible, once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy.
Title: Re: Geek toys you would buy if you had too much money
Post by: Gravehill on December 31, 2006, 01:59:40 am
Yes it is... But before you get hang on it it's really frustrating. It took about six hours to learn how to make it spin with thread every time. I have tried that finger thing already dozen times, so far no luck. But I will keep practicing!

That's what happened in Moonlight Sonata 2 (finnish horror comedy). It's story about family where one of the brothers resurrects his dead brother and mother (both killers from first Moonlight Sonata). resurrected brother moves to big city and gets into life of vice. That meaning : has inflatable doll. Mother visits his apartment and finds doll, start screaming and calling doll "whore" and slashes it with knife. As she stabbs it doll keeps moaning in "sexy" fashion. That's only movie thus far where I've seen murder of inflatable doll.
