Science In The Bath feature for Wired's GeekDad. Her suggestions require only food coloring, spoons, and tin foil, but if you want to go a step geekier, here are some bizarre and beautiful bathtime goods:
- Listen to this- "The Famous Sega Toys' Planetarium is also available in a Bathroom Version." I had no idea there was a famous Sega Planetarium, but I'm so glad there's a bathroom version. Available from GeekStuff4U, it floats, is waterproof, and has three modes: Planetarium, Rose Petal, and Deep Sea. I tried to find a photo of it in action, but every single one featured a lady taking a bath in a towel.
- ThinkGeek carries Squishy Baff H2Goo (none of those are typos), which looks awesomely weird. The baff goo comes in a bunch of colors, and the magic dissolver powder washes it neatly down the drain.
- The Drop LED Bath Light from Japan Trend Shop is a waterproof teardrop that lights up when it touches water, and proceeds to cycle through a glowing spectrum of colors. Many sites are promoting it as "romantic", but what little kid wouldn't love a rainbow bath?
- Okay, this GeekKryptonite Soap from Bubblelanesoap doesn't really do anything- except look awesome.
- These Ashland Submersible LEDs from Michaels don't look too exciting, but Play At Home Mom says they are incredibly fun for bathtime.
