Welcome to another fun-filled installment of This Week in Geek, where we round up some of our favorite stories from the past seven days (or so). Enough with the formalities; let's geek out.
Not all of us at GeekTech are Mac users, but we couldn't miss out on going to a trade show a few blocks away--especially one with Batman flash drives (see above), Bluetooth meat thermometers (???), and what might be the nerdiest jacket we've ever seen.
While on our little field trip to Macworld Expo, we found one of Yahoo's interactive touchscreen bus stops--giant screens where you can play games while waiting for your (late) bus to arrive. Hit up the link to see it in action!
We teamed up with our friends at GamePro and fooled around with some of the many hacks out there for Microsoft's Kinect accessory for Xbox 360.
Hacking a Kinect is cool. What's cooler? Using one to make holographic images.
Picture this: You're about to celebrate Valentine's Day. You have a romantic dinner at a fancy restaurant. Your significant other pulls out a package. You open it. It's full of microbes. Giant, plush ones at that. Is your reaction a) "WTF?", or b) "Will you marry me?"
