Top Christmas Gifts for Geeks – 2012


If you’re like me, then you haven’t even started your holiday shopping yet. If you’re still looking for a great gift for that special geek in your life, then look no further. All items after the break are King of All Geeks approved. Gift ideas are in no special order.


The List

Necomimi Brainwave Cat Ears – $100

I first saw these at NYCC and was pretty impressed. You wear them on your head and the ears move based on your emotions (brain waves). They also have different ear covers so you can mix and match based on your style.



Here are a few of my top picks, covering both the Apple and the Android fanboys. In my opinion though, the two Nexus contenders best their Apple counterparts in both specs and price.

Nexus 7 – $249 and up


iPad Mini – $329 and up


Nexus 10 – $399 and up


iPad With Retina Display – $499 and up


ODROID-U2 Android Dev Kit – $89 and up

Anyone looking to mess around with an Android Hardware developer’s kit should look no further. The ODROID-U2 provides some awesome specs at a great price.


Ouya – $99 and up

For those of you looking for an Android set-top box without the hassle of assembly, the Ouya might be perfect for you.



Here are some of the top geeky Blu-Rays that are sure to please.



The Dark Knight Rises


The Amazing Spider-Man


The Dark Knight Returns


MOGA Android Game Controller – $45

The MOGA Android Game controller is just that: a bluetooth gamepad for your Android device.  The benefit of this controller though is that MOGA provides an app that collects all games that work well with the controller. Other controllers are hit-or-miss when it comes to compatibility.


Video Games

The Walking Dead for XBOX 360


Halo 4

Call of Duty: Black Ops II



Marvel Now Comics

Marvel Now is a fresh start for a number of Marvel Series. Here are a few of my favorite:

Uncanny Avengers


Indestructible Hulk

All New X-Men


Action Figures

Black Spider-Man / Dr. Doom 


TMNT Classics


Batman Unlimited


Star Wars Wampa Ice Scraper
