In NBC’s new show The Cape, Vince Faraday is an ex-cop and father who is forced to take the guise of his son’s favorite comic book hero to bring down a corrupt police force. Faraday has his cape, made of Kevlar-like spider silk, which he can snap like a whip to disable foes. What do you have in your GeekDad utility belt?

You might have an iPhone. You might have a cool Dick Tracy watch. Maybe even a tiny computer that you can whip out at a moment’s notice. But nothing is as portable or versatile as a good old fashioned notebook.
From our friends at Maker Shed comes the Maker’s Notebook. Put your own ideas, diagrams, calculations & notes down in these 150 pages of engineering graph paper. There’s also 20 bonus pages of reference material, from useful stuff like electronics symbols, resistor codes, weights and measures, basic conversions and more, to really useful stuff like the amount of caffeine in different caffeinated beverages and how to say “Hello, World!” in various computer languages. It even has stickers!
We’ve got six Maker’s Notebooks to give away. One will go to our lucky Ultimate GeekDad Utility Belt winner. The other five? Well, we’re sending them out, too, as consolation prizes to those who don’t win the whole shebang. Use ’em to sketch out and manufacture your own utility belt!
