Ben and Rik did a bit of brain storming and we came up with the following list of stuff that we think is cool. We're not saying that you should buy it for us necessily ... but if you're ever stuck for birthday ideas for your favorite boys, then take our advice and buy something from this list.
An alternative - and this might sound a bit mercenary - send us an Amazon Gift Certificate. And we can decide what to buy...

Great way to make notes that I can then put online. I want one of these smart digital pens mainly as a way to put my dive logs both in my log book and online. I would also use it to publish some of my ideas onto my Workbench site. You know, for those invention ideas that I think up, but never get chance to implement.

I've seen products by these Livescibe people and they make really good pens that automatically capture everything you write electronically.

You can even interact with the pen (which contains a tiny computer) by writing keywords onto the pad. The pen even contains an audio recorder so you can more efficiently take meeting notes.
