Different Ways to Take Your Lunch to School or Work- Geek Style

Since it’s back to school I was looking for unique lunch boxes that are tech designed or oriented for my niece. I was blown away on how many different options and designs on the market for tech geeks. It was almost overwhelming since it’s just not tin lunch boxes anymore (like back in my day) and now have to choose if you want a lunch box, a heated lunch box, bento lunch box, lunch flasks, lunch jars, lunch totes, or lunch pouch. After picking out your new lunch mode transportation THEN you will need to choose design, size, and several other options.

To help my fellow Hi-Tech Chic Geeks and ease some shopping anxiety below is a list of some unique and geeky lunch box options. Please note all specs were derived directly from each companies individual sites and  Amazon.
