By Tonya Thompson on Dec 8, 2015

We don't hide our geekdom here at RocketFuel and neither should you, which is why we've put together this cool geek wish list for the holidays. Whether it's for that impossible-to-buy-for person on your shopping list or your own request to Santa, you will definitely find something here to make your holidays (or someone else's holidays) full of intellectually clever cheer.

Happy Holidays from our RocketFuel family to yours!

Ihuu Chainmail Satchel

Knight's Chain Mail Satchel

$99.99 at ThinkGeek

Few things are more precious than a geek's laptop, and few things are more stylishly protective than chainmail. So, logic would put the two of them together, wouldn't it?  We think so, too, which is why we love ThinkGeek's new Knight's Chain Mail Satchel. This unique faux leather messenger bag is covered with aluminum chain mail and celtic designs tooled into the polyurethane, making it as much about form as function, and the perfect gift for someone who prefers both. 

 

1f45 Starcraft Pylon Power Station Desk

Starcraft Protoss Pylon USB Charger

$39.99 at ThinkGeek

This Starcraft II Protoss Pylon Desktop Power Station is an ambient light and charger based on the wildly popular, top-selling Blizzard game, StarCraft2. With an AC adapter and two USB ports, it can power your devices with a micro-USB cable (included) or other USB cable (sold separately), although reviewers suggest giving it awhile to do its thing. While slow, this great psionic energy matrix emanating from Aiur is a conversation piece that looks great in just about any room and is sure to be a hit with any gamer on your shopping list.

Litter Robot LRII Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter Box

$349 at Amazon

You know how much we adore cats at RocketFuel and we're pretty tempted to get this for the office, especially considering the frequent (and fun) visits from our feline interns. The Litter Robot is an automatic, self-cleaning litter box that begins a clean cycle exactly 7 minutes from the time your cat enters and its weight is detected. With simple, durable construction, The Litter Robot rotates slowly and counter-clockwise to separate waste into a large capacity drawer that can be lined with trash bags.  It operates on a 12V DC and requires nothing more than adding litter to the globe and plugging it in. You'll also get an 18-month warranty and 30 day money back guarantee with it.

iPad Pro

From $799 by Apple 

Okay, we have to admit, we're absolutely drooling over this one.  Hailed by CNET as "a dream machine for graphic designers and media mavens," the iPad Pro has set the bar for the future of tablet technology.  With 5.6 million pixels and a 12.9-inch screen, the iPad Pro offers the clearest image you can get on any iOS device and comes with a fast, accurate, pressure-sensitive stylus that just makes art easy -- even if you're not an artist.  On top of that, the new A9X third‑generation chip with 64‑bit desktop‑class architecture offers up to 1.8 times the CPU performance and double the graphics performance of iPad Air 2.
