Looking for some geeky visual diversions to help make your coffee break even more enjoyable? Well, look no further because we're starting a new Geekend series in which we feature the nerdy and off-topic photo galleries published within the past week or so. We'll also showcase TechRepublic member picture galleries of costumes, tattoos, and pets.

This week, we highlight technology from Battlestar Galactica, the maiden flight of Terrafugia's flying car, news from the 2009 Game Developers Conference (GDC), geek chic, and more.

The technology of 'Battlestar Galactica'

This gallery shows some of the advanced technology found in the TV show Battlestar Galactica, and the editors compare it to things that actually exist in our world. A data-font, Cylon Raiders, and the DRADIS radar are just some of the tech featured.
