It’s been 100 years since Einstein proposed his theory of general relativity. To mark the occasion, Eoin Duffy, Jamie Lochhead and Anais Rassat created an awesome little animation that will educate you on one of the biggest scientific breakthroughs of all time in a little over three minutes.

And they got the next best person to Einstein to narrate—a Time Lord.

loot crate galaxy

With December being the month Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally arrives in theaters, you might have guessed that Loot Crate would go all out. This is what you have to look forward to in the “GALAXY” crate for December 2015:

December is going to be GALAXY themed, with items from Halo 5: Guardians, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and Galaxy Quest. The crate is going to have FIVE exclusive items, including a t-shirt and a Funko POP! that you can’t get anywhere else. This is the best crate of the year!

Plus, every Loot Crate starting with GALAXY is going to have a t-shirt inside.

If that sounds good, you’ll be happy to know that you can get 10% off your subscription when you use the code “NERDAPPROVED” at checkout.

You can also check out our monthly reviews to see what a Loot Crate subscription is all about.

Signups for the GALAXY crate end on December 19th at 9pm PT.

Also, Loot Crate has added several new crate options including Anime, Level Up (Apparel), Pets and Limited Edition specialty crates that revolve around a single franchise. On that note, look for a Star Wars Limited Edition crate to arrive on November 30th! (Note that the 10% code does not apply to the specialty crates).

nerdy mood lights

These Star Trek Borg Cube and Star Wars Death Star Mood Lights can hold up to 190 pounds if you choose to sit or rest your feet on them (though that doesn’t make a damn bit of sense with the Death Star), but they are undoubtedly most useful as mood lights.

They feature 16 different colors with strobe, flash, or fade settings (Borg Party Cube!) that can be controlled with the included remote. Plus, they have an internal, rechargeable battery so you can place them just about anywhere.
