Orbits Electric Church Sweepstakes Makes a Tech Girl Envious

There are plenty of contests and giveaways on the web but Orbit’s “Near Future Dystopia Survival Kit” is a hoot and full of completely non essential but seemingly cool tech items. According to the Orbit newsletter, the Electric Church by Jeff Somers is

A ‘kickass thriller” (1), “fun, cyberpunky noir SF” (2) and “an exhilarating example of powerful and entertaining storytelling.”(3)

To celebrate, they are giving away a Near-Future Dystopia Survival Kit from thinkgeek.com, packed with items that might just help you elude Dennis Squalor’s electric monks. The kit includes:

  • an RFID Blocking Wallet to keep your info hidden from scanning monks
  • a Lazer Tripwire set to help secure your computer from SFF snoops
  • a Wall Safe that looks like a power outlet to keep sensitive info away from prying eyes
  • a Super Ear that can amplify sound up to 50 decibels to monitor chatter outside your safehouse
  • And a Ninja remote –" which gives you control over most tvs, and might even shut down an Electric Church monk in a pinch.

To enter, just send an email to [email protected] with the words "Electric Church Sweepstakes" in the subject line. ()Official Rules)

Did I send in my email? You betcha. I can think of several uses for the Lazer Tripwire and the Ninja remote (not really but they sound pretty cool and I think the tot would love them).

    I love cyberpunk. I’m excited about Orbit’s books, that they’re launching in the US. I was looking at another one yesterday (and of course I adore Lilith Saintcrow’s Dante Valentine series). I hope Orbit does well with these books because I’d love to see more like them on the market.
