The term “geek” has developed significantly through time and now refers to someone who is captivated with a complex subject — be it mathematics, video games, fantasy literature, science fiction films, or any number of others — and knows practically everything there is to know about it. They may even be like our experts and know about making a custom smart home. So, on this Geek Pride Day, why not honor all of the world’s geeks? Check out some fun ideas we came up with!
Have a Geek Meet
If you’re more on the anti-social side, maybe going out to a geek-fest isn’t your thing. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun! Play nerdy games with your fellow geeks or online. This might be a perfect day to go back to a good old game of “Dungeons and Dragons.” Or join the relevant Watch party on Facebook or any other nerdy event you are interested in. You could also join an online discussion about your latest movie or show obsession with your fellow geeks.
And if you want an in-person meet-up with some friends, you can do that too. Maybe you’ll binge-watch your favorite anime or watch a marathon of Marvel films. Alternatively, you might spend the entire day playing your favorite video game. And if you can’t spend the whole day geeking, you can still take some time to show off your new projector or your home audio system you just added.
Geekify Your Home
Don’t feel like your home really showcases your inner or outer geek? Take the chance on this Geek Pride day to rectify that. So if you’ve been thinking your video game setup needs some work, it’s time to go for an upgrade! And while you’re at it, you can completely transform your home theater experience with a custom solution that matches your geeky soul. You can even take the opportunity to geekify your backyard patio with an outdoor theater setup—the choice is yours!
Perhaps you’d want to use your creativity and set up some home automation lights to recreate Harry Potter scenes or as the backdrop for your next cosplay. It is Geek Pride Day, so why not get techy with it!
If you’re a sci-fi lover, you know what a tricorder is, but did you know that with home automation, you can almost have the real thing? The tricorder was the pinnacle of efficiency and simplicity. It was a small machine that allowed access to an almost infinite amount of sensor data and automation. Like how a smart home hub or app is, nifty isn't it?
Motion sensors, light sensors, contact sensors, and a slew of other tricorder-like devices now power our smart homes’ automation. It’s an amazing experience that only fellow geeks can truly enjoy. And you can celebrate Geek Pride Day by simply creating the home automation of your geeky dreams! The options are endless from speakers, audio, lights, and security! You get brownie points if you can create your own personal home automation app.
This national holiday is in honor of all the unique and wonderful things technology can do. So if you know any geeks, it’s time to celebrate them (and yourself). We hope you have loads of fun!
