Geek Stuff?

Post by Vroqren »

I recently bought something that I have now been wanting for a while now. Aperture Science cuff-links. They were (and still are) awesome. However, now I have no goals.

I have found that, being an American, if I am not specifically saving up for something, I tend to spend my money on junk food instead.
I've been looking for some new item to save up for, that has practical use, and nerdy/geeky humor. Does anybody have any ideas for me?

EDIT: I've already got some money set aside for a Leap Motion once that launches.

That's a cool device. Sure would help with Carpal Tunnel!
Liked the price but couldn't figure out where to find out if it's for Mac or PC or both. It did say app so I think it might be Mac. Is it?

I found this on their order page.

Minimum system requirements: Windows 7 or 8 or Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, AMD Phenom II or Intel i3 / i5 / i7 Processor, 2GB RAM, USB 2.0 port, Internet connection, Leap Motion ID and free download from leapmotion.com/setup.

Hope this helps.

I can't wait for this new toy to hit the app store. Sounds terrific, and I hope it works as well as advertised. Great idea :!:

It does. They released a Beta to a very small amount of people (Not free, it had the fee), and my brothers friend was lucky enough to get one. He actually had to leave town for a couple of days, so he lent it to my brother for that time. I got to play around on Google maps with it for a while, and they are truly excellent.

I'm currently trying to save up for some dental work for my wife, then I need to rebuild both of our computers (we're both heavy pc gamers), and then I will buy me a new laptop. After that I haven't organized anything yet because this will probably take me 2 to 3 years to complete.
