But last year, ThinkGeek included one item in its roundup that was so compelling that many users wrote in and suggested the company should develop a real product. And so they did. Now you can buy an 8-bit tie, which is a necktie that looks like a pixelated representation of a tie from a video game.
Which brings us to today's question. Which of the following fake products do you wish were real?
- The Personal Soundtrack T-Shirt
- Super Pii Pii Brothers
- Spazztroids - Caffeinated Cereal
- NSA Mega-encrypted Tee
- Betamax to HD-DVD converter
- p-Teq USB Pregnancy Test Kit
- Defensius Labyrinth Lock
- ZapCam - YouTube Tazer
Update: In what's starting to look like an annual tradition, ThinkGeek ha decided to make the Personal SoundTrack T-Shirt into a real product.
They've upped the price a bit. It'll set you back $40. But once available, you'll be able to walk around with a T-shirt that sports an embedded speaker and comes with a pocketable remote control for controlling playback of various tracks.
Need some walking down the street music? Just hit a button. A friend tells you some shocking news about her famil? Press another. Going swimming? Take off your shirt for god's sake!
