3rd Prize: USB R/C Mini Car w/Garage
Every morning you do the same thing. You get up, brush your teeth (hopefully), get dressed, and drive to work. You sit looking at the same cars and the same tired faces also participating in the great morning commute. You get to work and sit at your desk, a new day of the same old sh...stuff. Wouldn't you just love, for once, to drive during the week and not hit traffic? Well, now you can - right on your own desk - with the USB R/C Mini Car w/Garage.
Just plug the garage into your USB port, load up the software, and give the car about 10 minutes to charge (inside its garage). Once it's done, open the garage door and drive the car out using your keyboard's arrow keys. And if that pesky coffee mug gets in the way again, hit the space bar to honk your horn. But really, there isn't any traffic on your desk, so you should enjoy a wonderfully relaxing drive. Take a right at the coffee mug, then a left at the stapler, and cruise on to Funsville (population: you).
4th Prize: Engine-gear Clock
This fascinating clock will keep you captivated, entertained and on-time. Glass face reveals the intricate moving gears and pays homage to the intricate beauty of the clock’s mechanism. Elegant and stately timepiece stands on desk or mounts on wall.
5th Prize: TIX Led Clock
Patterns can be found everywhere in life. In our DNA, in cloud formations, during a chess game, in your code, in your deviant behaviors, and even in your bottle of Bawls. Patterns give us clues. Clues give us information. Information makes the world a happier place (not necessarily a safer happier place though). In the case of the Tix clock, the patterns can give you the time.
Millions of patterns are possible with the futuristic-looking Tix clock, yet the clock is extremely simple to read once you grasp the basic concept. The four seperate fields act like the four digits of a digital clock. The value of each digit is simply the number of illuminated squares in each field. So any given time of the day may have thousands of different ways of displaying the time. The clocks in the image are displaying the time 12:34. It's that easy! Of course your friends are just going to take a look at your Tix clock and think it's just modern LED art. Dullards...
Please note that the image to your left shows the clock static. However, you can set your Tix clock to update every second so that you end up with a constantly evolving change of patterns that reveals to you the time.
6th Prize: Office Space Milton Bobblehead
Rumpled, disgusted and filled with cataclysmic rage, Milton is anchored to reality by his red Swingline stapler. Even as Milton is indirectly fired from his job, his office possessions ransacked, his office cubicle downgraded to the storage basement, Milton hangs on to his precarious sanity---until Lumbergh decides to take the coveted Swingline too.
Milton complains and mutters incoherently, incubating inside his narrow office cubicle while he clings relentlessly to his stapler, having no idea that he’s been fired because no one will broach the actual subject. The taking of the Swingline officially pushes Milton beyond the brink. Milton returns to start a fire, jabbing Lumbergh at the empty core exactly where it hurts by destroying a massive swath of the Initech building

13th Prize: Mini Rubber Band Artillery
