TAKE THE 3-MINUTE QUIZ

Express Your Tech Love (The Stylish Way)

In the past, we have told you about silly, geeky tech paraphernalia like those t-shirts that say “There’s no place like 127.0.0.1.” Funny, yes, and you gotta love the Wizard of Oz reference, but hip? Not so much.

In the past, we have told you about silly, geeky tech paraphernalia like those t-shirts that say  “There’s no place like 127.0.0.1.” Funny, yes, and you gotta love the Wizard of Oz reference, but hip? Not so much.

Fortunately, things have come a long way in the past 5-10 years and techy accessories are way more styling then they used to be. With that in mind, we went out hunting for beautiful and fashionable ways for you to express your love for all things code.

Wear: Ascii Heart <3 Necklace


Adafruit is a fantastic online retailer that sells all types of electronic computing bits and pieces. You may remember it from our post about Lilypad Arduino, or you may have caught wind of Adafruit’s founder, Limor Fried, when she was nominated for Entrepreneur Magazine’s Entrepreneur of 2012.

Well it turns out that Adafruit also has stuff for you to wear, and some of it doesn’t even need an electrical current.

Communicate: My love for you has no bugs, just random features


We love email as much as the next lady. But, as we learned yesterday, when GoDaddy took our website and email server down, sometimes its good to have a paper backup.

Send this card to someone you love so that they know that you took care to de-bug your love, even in Internet Explorer 6, just in case!

Wear: Black Tie


Got someone in your life who happens to love neckties and have trouble remembering his or her hexadecimal colors? Well thank goodness for this super fly looking tie that will subtly make sure they never forget.

Wear: You’re the CSS to my HTML


Sure, you can have HTML without CSS, but really it just makes things seem gray…live your life in technicolor in this cute tee.

Decorate: 404 Hearts


Sometimes, you just need pure whimsy. Pure whimsy and hearts. Nothing wrong with those two, even if they bear the marker of the most feared error message (404!).

Now, if only we could find a teapot that could tell us it’s a teapot

Wear: Typeface Tattoos


Why express your love for all things type and technical on your clothing, when you can write it on your skin? Mix and match these Tattly typeface tattoos and make sure everyone knows that you are 100% serious about pixel-perfect type design.

If you are ready to go for something more permanent, we can always recommend a </head><body> tattoo.

Decorate: Keep Calm and Code On


You know when you are tired and frazzled and everything goes wrong? Well nowhere is this more true or more damaging than in code. Ask any developer and they can tell you a horror story about a small punctuation error that caused hours of distress late one night, only to be resolved in minutes the following morning.

So when you get stuck, remember this: Keep Calm and Code On (and maybe it’s time for a nap).
