Adding a little geek flare to your house never hurt anyone and with a surge of stylish and modern designs, it no longer has to be clunky and awkward. From LED lights, circuit-board art and even vintage tech prints, adding a hit of geek to your surroundings can be done in a simple, classy way that says "yeah, I'm a geek, but I don't wear a pocket protector or have an elaborate shrine to Star Wars in my bedroom."
A favorite at quirky shops around the states, the Welcome In Binary Floor/Door Mat is not only pretty and artistic, but it actually reads 'welcome' in binary code. "Your UPS delivery guy is going to think it's just a cool, funky, retro pattern," says ThinkGeek. "And he'll be right. But your uncle from NASA will see that pattern as a collection of seven other patterns at which point he'll quickly decode the message, chuckle, and slap the knocker on your door." ($39.99)
The Numbra House Number System created by designer Matt Carr is an inexpensive and classic way to infuse your life with a little techie-ness. The numbers come with adjustable tabs for customizing numbers and can be reversed to expose either brushed metal or black finish. ($11)
