ThinkGeek just announced a slew of new products to kick off this April, and they’re all either unique new concepts or surprising takes on popular brands. It starts with stats and spit, and ThinkGeek’s new 4d6andMe Stat Discovery Kit.4d6andMe is like a genetic analysis kit, only useful. Just send in a saliva sample and in six to eight weeks ThinkGeek will send a full analysis of your stats. STR, DEX, CON, INT, WIS, and even CHA can be measured with an easy swab and a prepaid mailer. ThinkGeek partnered with RPGenotech for this service, which seems to be using the most up-to-date measurements from 5E. You can even get extra reports for your race and alignment, and I’m not sure whether that’s problematic or not.If you want to go into the other direction of gamification, ThinkGeek’s new Quest Management Kit helps produce artificial satisfaction for millennials in the workforce. This is specifically for managers looking to connect with their dissatisfied subordinates by turning tasks into quests. It even comes with a Convertible Status Hat with a yellow exclamation point to indicate you’re ready to give your employees a quest. And if you haven’t gotten the joke of this story on this day, I have to say that I’m terrified at how feasible this is as a genuinely marketed and wildly misguided product.Speaking of kids these days, Fortnite Battle Royale is the hottest streaming fodder for certain Twitch personalities and Toronto rappers, so ThinkGeek made a remote control blimp. Well, bus. Well, bus-blimp, or blusp. The Fortnite R/C Battle Bus is a flying drone modeled after the Battle Bus from the game, and even connects to your smartphone or tablet to give you AR navigation with the Fortnite Battle Royale map.ThinkGeek reached into some deep nostalgia for its Bluetooth Pet Rock. The Pet Rock was released in 1975, but that was years before any consumer digital wireless standard was established. The Bluetooth Pet Rock connects to any mobile device over Bluetooth 4.0, and even supports Qi charging. ThinkGeek says it can last eight hours on a charge, but we’ll have to test it to find out.It’s still pretty chilly up here in New York, but spring and summer will be coming soon, and eventually you might want to hit the pool. That’s why ThinkGeek released the Alien Facehugger Snorkel Mask. It’s exactly what it sounds like: a snorkel that looks like a Facehugger from Alien. On that note, Alien: Covenant suuuuuucked.Just in time for Jurassic World: Lost Kingdom, ThinkGeek also announced the Jurassic World Dinosaur Detection System. Just fill the container with any compatible liquid and set an IFTTT recipe to send you a message if it ripples! Other tricks up ThinkGeek’s sleeve include Tesla vs. Edison Rock ‘Em Shock ‘Em Robots, a Rick & Morty screaming sun clock,  and Klingon language fridge magnets.
