Cel­luon Epic Laser Key­board ($149.99)

Those trans­par­ent pop-up dis­plays made popular by films like Mi­nor­ity Re­port un­for­tu­nately don’t yet ex­ist; how­ever, you can recre­ate the ex­pe­ri­ence with this in­no­va­tive de­vice! The Epic projects a fully func­tional laser-im­age key­board onto any flat sur­face and pairs with your iPad or iPhone via Blue­tooth. When paired with a Mac, it also serves as a mouse by re­spond­ing to sim­ple hand move­ments. This is an ideal gift for the friend who wants to geek out but still stay pro­duc­tive. Yan­touch IceDi­a­mond+ Blue­tooth Speaker ($149)

The IceDi­a­mond+ Blue­tooth and in-line speaker is sure to trans­port any sci-fi fan on your hol­i­day list to other worlds. The beau­ti­ful shim­mer­ing sphere pro­duces ex­cel­lent am­pli­fied sound and con­tains a 1300mAh bat­tery that lasts up to 10 hours. You can con­trol the neodymium mag­net-driven speaker by app or re­mote, al­low­ing you to fully im­merse in the speaker’s beau­ti­ful LED light­show as it pours color through its patented galaxy dif­fu­sion shell. ThinkGeek Flux Ca­pac­i­tor USB Car Charger ($24.99)

Of course you want to give some­one a Flux Ca­pac­i­tor (the key to time travel from Back to the Fu­ture)— who cares if they don’t own a DeLorean! ThinkGeek ful­fills your friend’s geeky fan­tasies with its ex­clu­sively li­censed Flux Ca­pac­i­tor USB Car Charger that can charge two phones or tablets at once—and look damn cool while do­ing it. En­joy the beau­ti­ful light se­quence, or flip the switch to turn it off while driv­ing to stay fo­cused. Sphero 2.0 ($129.99)

For those who have won­dered what fu­ture en­ter­tain­ment looks like, think “robot ball.” Once you connect Sphero to your iDe­vice via Blue­tooth, sim­ply take con­trol of the de­vice with the Sphero app (free) and let the fun begin! Play in­ter­ac­tive games with in­cluded ramps or watch the ball chase your dog (don’t worry, Sphero is both wa­ter­proof and pet proof!). Adding a rub­ber Nubby Cover ($14.99) will turn it into an off-road-wor­thy play­mate. This is a must for the geek who has it all and is look­ing for a new gad­get to pass the time.
