Hey, we're all a little bit nerdy, right? Maybe you don't stay up late into the night writing mathematical proofs (or maybe you do!), but I'm willing to bet that there's something you're passionate about that may be considered a little nerdy. Some of us are book nerds, some are space nerds. Some people love Star Wars, some love Star Trek, and some love them both equally and would never dare try to choose between the two.
Whatever it is you nerd out about, there's something on Amazon that will certainly appeal to you. Amazon carries all kinds of nerderrific stuff, from one of those whimsical drinking birds to a Poké Ball waffle maker! So set down the calculator, push up those glasses, and grab your nearest slide rule — actually, just sit back, relax, and get ready to add a whole bunch of nerdy stuff to your wishlist.
We hope you find these nerdy products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We participate in affiliate programs and may get a share of the revenue from your purchase.
This Solar System Crystal Ball Is Both Classy and EducationalYou might not be able to see the future when looking into this crystal ball, but you can see the whole solar system, which is also pretty nifty. It comes with a sleek wooden stand and can be used as a paperweight or simply as a freestanding bit of decor. Inside, you'll find the Sun and all eight planets of our solar system (sorry, Pluto — you didn't make the cut).
This Bottle of Ferrofluid Will Keep You Busy for HoursAs I'm sure you already know, magnets are the coolest. You know what's even cooler, though? Magnetic liquid! This listing includes both a small bottle of ferrofluid and two magnets that you can use to manipulate the liquid. Undisturbed, the ferrofluid forms a smooth pool. But as soon as you bring a magnet into close proximity, spikes form on the surface of the fluid and make it look like a little sea urchin. Pretty cool, huh?
I Could Watch This Drinking Bird Go All DayDunk the bird's head into a glass of water and watch the magic happen! As the water evaporates from the bird's head, the head cools off, which in turn does a bunch of fancy stuff to the methylene chloride inside and makes the bird continuously dip his head into the glass of water, appearing to drink it. It's science! And it's cute!
This Star Trek Door Chime Is a Must-Have for TrekkiesMount this chime on either side of a door and get ready to be delighted every time you or someone else walks past it. You can set it to either emit a Red Alert alarm or the door opening sound effect you'll recognize from The Original Series. You can also push a button on the front to make it make the Communicator Whistle.
This Apple Watch Stand Looks Like an Old School iMac.Ahh, I remember the day we first got these awesome computers in my school's computer lab. It was like walking into the future. If you also geek out over the memory of the first Apple iMacs, this Apple Watch stand may be for you. You can hook your charger up to it so it charges your watch and also creates a little computer display all at the same time.
This Enamel Pin Lets You Wear Your Nerdery Right on Your Sleeve(Or your lapel. Or wherever else you put pins.) I have to say that the recent-ish trend of collecting enamel pins is one of my favorite things ever. This one has a cool design featuring an arcade game console. Show off your love for video games and arcades with this sleek pin. I love the colors in it!
Make Your Own Video Game with BloxelsFull disclosure: I'm pretty sure this is meant for kids, but it's so cool that I want one for myself anyway. Use the game board and the 320 Bloxel blocks to build game rooms, characters, and game art for your game. Then use the Bloxels Builder app to bring your 8-bit creations to life in an actual video game! Is that not the coolest thing you've ever heard of in your whole life?
This Nanoblock Space Shuttle Kit Is Tiny, yet AmazingOnce it's built, the entire Nanoblock structure is only about 20 centimeters tall! It's basically like a LEGO kit for people who want to make their creations on a very small scale. And I do mean small — the smallest Nanoblocks are a super teeny tiny 4mm x 4mm x 5mm! You might want to grab some tweezers. But don't worry. Even though the completed build is tiny, the satisfaction you'll feel upon completing it is massive.
Thing Explainer Is a Funny Book That Explains Thingsxkcd webcomic. Munroe set himself the challenge of using only the thousand most common words to provide simple explanations for truly complicated stuff — like food-heating radio boxes (microwaves), boxes that make clothes smell better (washer and dryers), and the bags of stuff inside you (cells). Not only is it hilarious to read; it's also truly informative! I got this book for my brother for Christmas and we all had a lot of fun reading it.
This Book Is Also a PlanetariumAnd a speaker, and a perpetual calendar, and a musical instrument... Every page of this unique pop-up book is also a tool of some sort. I actually got this for another one of my brothers last Christmas (I have a lot of nerdy brothers, OK?), and it was also a total hit.
Reading a book is always a great way to stay entertained, but I think this book gets bonus points for also being able to perform actual tasks. This is a great buy for book collectors with curious minds!
