Stocks in this article: GKNT





FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ThinkGeek's (NASDAQ: GNKT) covert product division known as GeekLabs has just launched a product that will change the fabric of audio reality forever: the Mega Stomp Panic.

Designed to be worn by itself or as part of a costume, the Mega Stomp Panic is a first-of-its-kind audio reality costume.  By simply attaching the palm-sized device to a belt and turning two dials, wearers can select one of nine different sound profiles that generate unique sounds with every step and stomp.

"The idea is to take costumes beyond just what we see," said Ty Liotta, Grand High Marshall of the ThinkGeek Costume Parade. "Wearing the Mega Stomp Panic turns your footsteps into an incredible audio experience."

In "Rainstorm" mode, the Mega Stomp Panic makes every footfall sound like the wearer is walking through puddles, while a stomp sounds like a jump into standing water. Try "8-Bit Gaming Hero" mode to turn your steps into a run through an 8-bit landscape.

The nine unique sound profiles are:   

  • Hydraulic Giant Robot
  • Rainstorm
  • Zombie Attack
  • Gigantic Monster
  • Gunslinger
  • Medieval Knight
  • Pegleg Pirate
  • 8-Bit Gaming Hero
  • Steampunk Giant Robot

The Mega Stomp Panic will cost $39.99 and be on display for the first time to the public at New York Comic Con, taking place October 11-14 at the Javits Center.  ThinkGeek will be sharing a booth #1851 with Nerdist Industries.
