"geek" news and stories
I'm not quite sure if this concept could be a functional keyboard because really, wouldn't the chocolate melt from the heat of the computer, and get all over the user's fingers?
Okay, so even though it's a concept, it isn't really meant to be a working keyboard anyway. It's just something cute for that special geek in your life who happens to love chocolate. Hopefully, they'll actually make these in time for Valentine's Day!

It looks like you can have your chocolate molecule and wear it, too. This t-shirt has the representation of the molecular structure of theobromine, the ingredient in chocolate that acts as a mood elevator and stimulant and helps to make chocolate so popular. Unlike the chocolate molecule we looked at before, this particular form of chocolate has no calories and is a more technical and more accurate representation of a chocolate molecule than the elegantly artistic truffle version.
Theobromine, by the way, is found in cacao, so dark chocolate has more of it than milk chocolate. Although it is a stimulant, its mood-elevating effects have been shown to be mild and long-lasting, unlike the rush that is usually associated with caffeine, a stimulant with which theobromine is often confused.
So because this tee is packed with theobromine, although it lacks cacao, you might just get a mood boost from wearing it - especially if you get the occasional rush from being just a little bit geeky (Not that there's anything wrong with that!).
Today, March 14th, is Pi(e) day. Why pi(e)? 3-14 is the date that happens to correspond to the mathematical number pi. A slashfoodie (or a math geek) does not need to look beyond the fact that "pi" sounds just like "pie" to get a craving for a slice of crisp, sweet pie. The two terms are combined to make Pi(e) Day and to give everyone an excuse to have an extra slice of pie for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Of course, the creator of the Pi Apple Pie pictured here may have taken the concept to an extreme, but it is a delicious and amazing dessert all the same.
