Everything the nerd heart desires

Gadgets are especially popular among nerds. But what exactly is a nerd, and how is it different from a geek? This is because the two terms are often used synonymously, although there are definitely differences.
Although there are self-evidently nerdy geeks and geeky nerds.
Nerds and geeks have certainly become famous through the popular TV series The Big Bang Theory. Here, nerds and geeks are portrayed so beautifully and taken for a ride. On the other hand, as a normal person, you also get valuable insights into the workings of the nerd and geek brains.
What's a geek?
In the early 20th century, traveling fairs were very popular. And on these you could always admire people who performed some bizarre and somehow different or deviant tricks. These performers were referred to as geeks. Interestingly, this very often involved biting off the heads of live chickens.
Now of course, fortunately, you can assume that the geeks of today, no live chickens bite their heads off, geeks are rather people who are very knowledgeable about a subject - to the point of obsession.
At first, geeks were mainly found in the technical field, but now it has become more universal. So there are car geeks, wine geeks, comic book geeks, etc. What they all have in common is that they typically tend to be obsessed with the subject of their choice.
Geeks are generally social and enjoy socializing and doing activities together.
What's a nerd?
The word nerd was invented in 1954 by a young doctor named Seuss. This one delivered the following line, "A nerkle, a nerd, and a seersucker to boot!" Meant to be a bit of a nuisance, unattractive and unpopular person. However, this person is typically also highly intelligent, brilliant, and a true expert in his or her field.
Nerds are usually more antisocial and introverted. They prefer to deal with their subject rather than petty social banter.
A funny - and often very correct - definition of the term nerd is: "A four-letter word with a six-figure income".
Can you be a geek and a nerd at the same time?
In general, there is significant overlap between geeks and nerds. Therefore, you can definitely be both. So people who love Star Trek may also be interested in the much more serious string theory. As Star Trek aficionados, these geeks may well be very social, whereas when it comes to string theory, they may be more introverted and reticent about communicating. An avid tomato gardener who geekily rambles on to those around him with details of his hobby may secretly have a degree in biochemical engineering.
In the already mentioned series The Big Bang Theory you can definitely observe this.
That's why nerd gadgets are typically also geek gadgets - so both are sure to find what they're looking for here!
