Yes, you can do that! Like Kryptonite says, just make it your own.

As long as you used parts or pieces from our current (or old) offerings, yes indeed.

I only read the reply that said "Yes, you can do that! Like Kryptonite says, just make it your own. " I've been working on a DIY Datalocker, but it doesn't have any pieces from the thinkgeek store in it, does this mean it doesn't count? :S -Yon

We're working on the international shipping situation, so yes, hopefully--but can't say for sure right now, or how long that would take. We're sorry for the inconvenience!

Cool! you have such good products and it's a shame I can't buy any of them because my country isn't on the list... Good luck! Thanks you!

To get stuff before we got it mailed to a friend in the US who then posted it on to us, could be a notion to help with the shipping issues...

Does it have to have been purchased from them? Or could it be the same product, bought somewhere else?

I think he's asking if it's legal to sell the things that he sees on instructables (The products, not the instructions) I'd say yeah, go ahead, so long as it's not a copyrighted device or anything.

I don't think so, if I am thinking what you are, I think they want you to mod one of their products, not make one of them yourself

I believe your post is correct. My interpretation from the instant replay is: You must buy a thinkgeek product or have one previously purchased from them. Hack that item using at least one bit or piece from the original thinkgeek product. Probably a good idea to post the thinkgeek percentage of product and origin in your instructable. You can duplicate an existing thinkgeek product as long as you used a part from a real thinkgeek product that you had purchased or aquired earlier. But mod or add a new feature. Bottom line: I think a purchase is necessary. Dunnos will have to buy a laser pointer or some other item from thinkgeeks to make his pocket laser show device, maybe a stuffed toy?

I reckon if you made one but infinite times better I imagine you could, but try to make it mostly your idea. Hope it turns out alright!
