Computex 2007 – A Whacking Good Time


Thermaltake made the mistake of giving us air hammers during our booth visit. What started off as a nice formal business meeting turned into a whacking good time as out of the blue, I would whack Stephen fung on the head while he was asking a serious question.

We had a great time walking the show floor and spontaneously whacking people over the head. Most people laugh when they got whacked – lucky for me. The hammer does a good job at scaring booth babes. Most would cover their heads and scream.

Everything was going great until I came across some MSI booth babes with their own hammers. The picture below shows two girls with hammers, but there were really four so I was severely outnumbered. Can you imagine getting into a hammer fight with four girls?


During the meeting with MSI, the PR rep gave us all MSI hammers. I thank the MSI rep by whacking her over the head with it. Here’s a video of how a hammer fight normally breaks out.

  18. “Booth Babes” I never knew that someone had coined the phrase. Very funny. . . .

    How the heck can you function with that hammer. I would be smacking people as a way of introducing myself to them. . . .

    Very fun way to keep busy that’s for sure

    1. John Chow says:

      In Asia, they’re call Show Girls. However, in North America, we use term Booth Babes.

  19. Gotta have some rules for this game! Like who hits first buys the drinks later!

    Or no double hitting!


  20. Sofcore says:

    “Can you imagine getting into a hammer fight with four girls?”

    They should have been giving away pillows… Can you imagine how many people would have had their fantasies fulfilled the very moment the fight broke out? πŸ˜‰

    Nice booth babes!

  24. Dog Breeds says:

    I should probably start going to this kind of stuff just for the women.

  25. Did you feel less manly because your hammer was smaller than the show girl? πŸ˜‰

  26. Bob Buskirk says:
