What is the coolest science merchandise out there?

What is the funniest, nerdiest or most beautiful science merchandise out there? Let’s vote!

In recent years, the market for merchandise conveying nerdy humor has exploded. Not only do major players like Amazon and redbubble offer loads of t-shirts, smartphone cases, pillows – there’s an international plethora of small companies and basement designers doing great stuff.

To celebrate this multitude of ideas and creativity, Crastina will run a pre-Christmas science merchandise vote. The nomination will take place Tuesday 17 December to Friday 20 December, and the voting will follow right after. (It’s a bit improvised, so these dates may be modified.)

To nominate a product, write a comment on this web page. Write a descriptive title (e.g. “Periodic system coffee mug”) and a fun description, including a motivation. Don’t forget a direct link to the web shop. To inspire you, we have included some of our favorites!
