1st Prize: Aqua Dance nanotech water slide
If you're looking for something new to take your mind completely off your job at the office, then enter the world of nanotechnology with the cool new Aqua Dance - Nanotech Water Slide. This amazing water fountain / pachinko machine / Plinko game drips water droplets down a nanotech coated obstacle-laden maze-like slide. As the beads of water fall, the high-tech coating causes them to slide, bounce, scatter, break apart and join back together like mercury does (like the Terminator T-1000). The water thens drops into holes at the bottom, where they are then pumped back up to be reused over and over again. No batteries are needed, just press the pump button and swivel the adjustable faucet to aim. This should definitely waste a few productive hours a day

9th Prize: DIY Drinking Strawz
Liquids are fun outside your body (like swimming in a lake or pre-set grape gelatin) and they are fun inside your body (like Bawls, Jolt, and the occasional Zima - just kidding). But really, the big problem comes when deciding how to make fun liquid get from outside your body to inside your body. Our favorite method is drinking. And when we drink, we like using straws. But sometimes a straight straw is boring. So we combined a few chemicals in a test tube and DIY Drinking Strawz were born.
Composed of 44 dishwasher safe components, DIY Drinking Strawz guarantee that liquids get into your body exactly how you want them to. Want to mix drinks? Well, then build your straw to dip into two (or more) cups. Want to share? Then build an extra drinking branch. Want to mix drinks AND share? You can do that too!!! Amazing, ain't it? And hey, if you want to go nuts and really suck, you can buy more than one set and make a mondo-gigantic straw. You could be the Suck-Meister.
10th Prize: Ninja Star Push Pins
There are many nonverbal signs you can use to let those in your office know how you feel about them. You can leave a sticky note saying "Good Job" on their monitor. You can put laxatives in their coffee. Or, you can do as the ninjas done did: stick an angry note on their cubicle wall with throwing stars. Of course not real throwing stars, but Ninja Star Push Pins.
This prize will bring you three Ninja Stars of posting doom. Each star has one corner cut off and replaced with two push pins, so when they are embedded in the wall (or cork board or foam board) they look like they were thrown with great force. And apart from looking cool in the wall, the stories of how the Ninja Star Push Pins got there in the first place will quickly become the things of office legend - because nothing adds emphasis to a sign or note like a Ninja Star

These Origami Sticky Notes provide something fun for those dull moments at the office. You can now re-cycle your old sticky notes and turn them in to paper 3-D models.
12th Prize: Paper E-mail
Ready for a strange fact we discovered recently? E-mail has been around since before computers. At first, e-mails were written on rocks and thrown at neighbors. CC-ing a rock e-mail could be dangerous for an entire village. Then, e-mails were written on paper and put in weird paper things called envelopes and the postal system delivered them. This was slow. Finally, e-mail as we know it came around. Well, for fun, let's take a technological step backwards.
Paper E-mail is perhaps the funniest way to pass messages in your office. Why? Because it will confuse the person you send it to. 'Why didn't they just e-mail this to me?' they'll wonder, 'is their computer down?' Great for sending IT e-mails on - especially if you mention they are a test of the new e-mail servers. Paper E-mails are a great, funny mix of new ideas and old school technology. So take a step back in time and find out how folks e-mailed other folks in the dark ages (that is, a long while ago).
