10 unusal gadgets and gifts for geeks By Evan Narcisse, Crispy Gamer Nerds. Geeks. Fanboys. Whatever you call them, the comics aficionados, movie buffs and videogame enthusiasts who dwell amongst us can be really hard to shop for. But it gets dramatically worse this time of year, when everyone revisits their love/hate relationship with the holiday shopping season. On one hand, so much cool stuff hits the shelves that it’s hard not to have a brain explosion. On the other hand, who has the time to wade through all of it to find just the right gear for that special someone? Let this humble gift guide serve as a cheat sheet for the loot you’ll either be picking up or dropping hints about.

1. Cinemin Swivel, $349, What it is: A handheld, pocketable projector that you can hook up to laptops, game consoles and iPods. It can throw up images that are up to 60 inches wide and its hinged design allows you project onto ceilings, too. Why they’ll want it: Sure, you can use it for boring tasks like office presentations or vacation-photo slideshows. But, can you resist staging giant gaming sessions that dwarf the biggest television in your home? We didn’t think so. Another option: Without a hinge, it’s not as versatile as the Cinemin, but the Optoma PK102 ($229) packs 4 GB of internal memory for storing your presentations or video clips.

2. Marvel Comics’ Digital Comics Unlimited, $49.99 for 12 months, What it is: This virtual initiative by the folks who bring you Spider-Man and the X-Men offers up access to more than 5,000 comics via the Web. You’ll get choices from recent releases like “Invincible Iron Man,�

back-catalogue classics like “The Infinity War� or online exclusives like “Spectacular Spider-Girl.� Why they’ll want it: Take it from me, comics take up lots of space. But Marvel’s DCU means you don’t have to give up your superhero addiction to clear out space for a yoga nook. It also features rare comics from the ‘40s and ‘50s that would cost a fortune for the physical versions. So, you’re saving square footage and money! Another option: If your favorite fanboy or fangirl wants their paperless comics on the go, the Comixology Comics app ($0.99) on iTunes lets them download full issues of great titles like “Irredeemable� and “The Unknown,� and cues up loads of free comics to boot.

3. Logitech Driving Force GT Racing Wheel, $149, What it is: This wheel-and-pedals combo adds even more realism to racing simulators like Gran Turismo 5 Prologue for the PlayStation 3. Why they’ll want it: That car in the driveway? Face facts: The morning commute will never show you what it’s really capable of doing. So it’s off to the virtual tracks, where the force feedback on the Driving Force wheel will translate every bump and serpentine turn into hours of excitement. Another option: The Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel ($99) offers a similar experience for folks who’ll be putting the pedal to the carpet in Forza Motorsport 3.

Why they’ll want it: The Blu-ray release gets two new features sure to please hardcore Fight Clubbers. A Hit in the Ear gives you the ability to remix four scenes from the movie, and Insomniac Mode promises to let you access the disc’s bonus content with interactive search tools.

4. iHome Studio Series IP1, $299, What it is: Developed with the input of engineer Tony Bongiovi, who’s recorded Madonna, the Rolling Stones and Bon Jovi, the IP1 iPod speaker system aims to satisfy any audiophile’s picky ears.

Another option: If your would-be giftee leans toward more cosmic fare, then you won’t go wrong with J.J. Abrams’ triumphant reimagining of Star Trek (three-disc Blu-ray set, $39.99). The deleted scenes and commentary tracks will energize your beloved Trekkie like nothing else.

Why they’ll want it: Advanced digital processing makes your tunes sound like

6. Justice League: The Complete Series (DVD) $99.99, What it is: This 15-disc set collects five seasons of awesome action

they did in the original studio environment, with crisper highs and deeper bass tones. It’s not an eyesore either, unlike some other fancy iPod docks we could name.

from the series based on DC Comics’ premier super-team. Tons of fan-favorite characters show up to help Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman stop threats to Earth, the universe and beyond.

Another option: For exceptional acoustics on the go, Logitech’s Pure- Fi Express Plus ($99.99) will fill any camping tent or hotel room with 360 degrees of crystalclear sound. It’s an alarm clock, too, so you won’t have to worry about missing your return flight either.

and surprising characterizations in “Justice League� thrilled young viewers and oldschool fans alike. 2009’s slate of superhero movies delivered nothing but weaksauce - so use this massive collection to wash that bad taste out.

Fight Club (Blu-ray), $34.99,

son Three DVD set ($29.99) juggles action, drama and a metric ton of laughs as the adventuring family of Hank, Dean, Brock and Dr. Venture trample everything older geeks hold sacred.

What it is: Everyone knows paper photos have gone the way of the dodo, but the problem with most digital frames is that they need to be plugged into a computer for you to upload new pics. Don’t worry about losing another remote, either, since the touch-sensitive strip lets you smoothly navigate through menus right on the frame.

when all of a sudden there was quite a beerfest. It was good Ol’ St. Nick and his sleigh full of cheer, dropping off over 400 kinds of beer. There was Coors, Miller and Bud to name a few, but don’t forget about those great selections of coolers, imports and microbrews. We heard him exclaim as he exited the store “Shop at Beverage Express where the selection is greater and your dollar buys more!”
