If you’re a child of the 80’s like me, some of your fondest memories revolve around movies like ‘Real Genius’ or Hughes-ian bits of brain candy like ‘The Breakfast Club’ or, better yet, ‘Weird Science’. Oh, for the halcyon days of wrist-watch calculators and pocket protectors—when nerds first began to rattle the bars of their cages and shout their skinny-armed superiority from atop a mound of servers—the true first days of ‘nerd-chic’. These beer-steins of science are hand-crafted from Pope Scientific bench top dewar flasks which should ring-true for any hard core science geeks out there and help you drink your way back to your childhood. So strap a bra to your head, fire a laser through the wall, and fill your favorite college prof’s house with popcorn. Then get trashed in the name of SCIENCE!!!!
Watch out, mimobots. Funko has their own 2GB flash drives based on the Star Wars characters Darth Vader, Yoda, Stormtrooper and Boba Fett. Decapitate your fave to get to the connector. While mimico’s designs are limited edition art, come in differing storage amounts and pre-loaded with content, Funkos have a little more detail and look more like the originals. The quartet will be available this October for $24.99 each.

We didn’t know this, but apparently Star Wars fans are in need of even more things to collect! Luckily for them, the US Postal Service is releasing a poster-like sheet of 15 Star Wars stamps on May 25 (the stamps will not be available individually.) The 41-cent stamps—the new price goes into effect May 14—commemorates the 30th Anniversary of Lucas’ classic, and will feature the series’ most popular characters, from Darth Vader to the enigmatic Boba Fett. Even the Millennium Falcon gets some love! Fans will even get to vote for their favorite stamp at the appropriately-named www.uspsjedimaster.com, and the top vote-getter will be released as an individual stamp later this year. Sadly for Billy Dee Williams fans, there’s no Lando Calrissian stamp.
