Great profile in Wired of ThinkGeek (fun quote below..)

Case in point: ThinkGeek’s manufacturer in China is having trouble grasping the latest toy design—an “action” figure based on the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Chinese have written several times to insist that there must be some mistake with the specs—it’s simply a rectangular slab of black plastic. “We had the same problem with the USB pet rock,” Liotta says. True visionaries are rarely understood in their own time.
