Quirky Calendar for Nerds Goes on Sale in Germany

A group of three self-confessed nerds hired a photographer to create a calendar that would appeal to fellow gamers and vintage technology fans. The 2013 Nerd Dreams Calendar recently went on sale in Germany but is available to geeks worldwide.

Are you a big fan of iconic devices like the Atari ST, Commodore C64 or Steve Jobs’ NeXT Cube? Would you like to see them in the hands of attractive girls that don’t have to take off their clothes in order to attract attention, and more importantly, share your passion for nerdy stuff? Then you’re bound to appreciate the new Nerd Dreams Calendar for 2013, imagined by a group of German nerds tired of having their interests passed up by calendar makers. They created their very own company, Nerd Dreams, hired a photographer and put together the calendar they’ve always wanted, making sure every photo was “suitable for work”. ”We sub-contracted everything that had nothing to do with computers,” said Henning Schneider, one of the brains behind the nerd calendar, so the models were provided by an agency, and the pictures were taken by photographer Anna Schnauss in Frankfurt. Nerd Dreams 2013 features girls sporting geeky glasses and playing with old gadgets, as well as girls dressed as iconic video game characters like Lara Croft.

Henning Schneider: “Katerina with the Robotron KC87. If you don’t know the Robotron KC87 that’s okay, it was East Germany’s computer built in 1987. Some say the GDR was planning to get a Trabi and do an East German version of Knight Rider. Thankfully, the wall collapsed just in time.”

Henning Schneider: “November: Laura is tied to the NextCube, just like we’re all tied to the internet. Steve Jobs built the NextCube after getting fired from Apple 1988/89. Tim Berners-Lee then used it to program the first server and browser and gave birth to the WWW as we know it.”
