If GeekTech had an animal mascot, it would obviously be a cat. Not only are they a geek's go-to pet (and just plain cool!), but there are also a ton of fun and/or stupid accessories out there for them (mainly for our entertainment). Take the DJ Booth scratching post, or the cardboard tank--they're fun for cats (maybe) and hilarious for humans. That said, a true geek wouldn't settle for anything but the CAT-AT Luxury Condo.
The CAT-AT, as the name suggests, is a replica of the Star Wars AT-AT walker, kitteh style. Reddit user "BillyAppletini" created the ultimate cat house from items such as plywood, and piping along with the material used to make scratching posts. He spent an agonizing 27 days (!) creating the "imperial" condo in his loft, which not only features a ton of places for your cat to scratch and climb, but also a neat relaxation room inside.
You have to love the level of detail included in not only cutting all the bits to make a perfectly-formed AT-AT, but the room itself. Your kitteh can unwind under a disco ball, stare at a few cat-related paintings, or admire the bird heads on the wall. Or, most likely, your cat will lay low while watching the world go by through the windows.
Cats aside, it would also be a pretty impressive addition to your home to show off to your friends. After all, every geek's cat deserves an equally geeky home, right?
