Post image for How Animation Movies Became the New Geek Chic

At first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking that kids’ films and adult films were two separate genres; however, the success of witty, knowing features such as Despicable Me, The Lorax, Frozen and Megamind has changed the movie landscape entirely. Family-friendly films have always been popular with Hollywood because their target demographic is so vast, but with their filmic references, dry humor and quick delivery, the new breed of animated features appeal to the geek in us all more than ever.

WaterPebble water saver

There is no better feeling than taking a nice, long hot shower. I personally go through phases where I either try my best to save water and keep the showers short or the phase where I really enjoy the long hot showers.

The Binary Watch is the perfect way show the world your inner geek. What’s more geeky than wearing a watch that displays time on a micro controller/circuit board? In other words, those chip looking things you find in the back of electronic devices.
