Pic from ThinkGeek

Talking about geekiness, this gadget from PTeq (US$17.99) definitely ranks amongst the top of the list. Imagine this, you pee on the absorbent test strip on the end of the stick, remove the cap to the USB connector on the other end, connect it to the computer, the power from your USB port starts the electrospray ionization process, creating a spectrograph of the various masses for your analysis.

According to ThinkGeek, “the mass spectrometry software on the device comes with several sequenced hormones, including hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin), hCG-H (hyperglycosylated hCG – for detection before your first missed period), and LH (luteinizing hormone – for detection of your most fertile days).”

Other features –

  • No batteries required – draws power from USB
  • USB 2.0 compatible
  • Plug and play, easy operation
  • Operating Systems: Win 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, Linux 2.4 or higher, Mac OS 8.6 or higher
  • 20 test strips included
  • 99% accuracy*
