Zap And Kill USB Sticks With Rfiddler Modified Nerf Gun

Some guy in Germany had a bit too much time on his hands and modified a Nerf gun into a electromagnetic USB stick stun gun.

This gun is by no means subtle and was modified from an old Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6. Added to the mod was an MP3 player and amp for sound effects, a flash unit and 50-turn copper spool. The completed gun, including accupack, chips, LEDs, paint, and primer, cost around $75 to construct and still works as the original N-Strike gun. The video shows several RFID products killed so the signal no longer works, and the author also claims it will destroy USB sticks, and I would assume, many other electronic gadgets. Clearly a fun and interesting product for the hobbiest, but very little particle use. Source:  Pocket-Lint.com Continue Reading

Lavish Gresso USB Drive

MSN did a fun article on 8 lavish gadgets for the holidays, and of course, a USB flash drive made the list.

Gresso introduced a 64GB USB flash drive which is F1 racing inspired with sleek design, look and material.  Gresso used the base material to be carbon fiber [the black] and titanium alloy as the accents [silver] then glazed the entire device with a special ceramic coating.

The Gresso branded USB stick will set you back 6,448 Peso’s or about $500 USDs.  Still small enough to be lost in any coat pocket, but a perfect stocking stuffer for the well-to-do.

So the question becomes:  would your friends be more impressed with the Gresso flash drive or a $500 bill?

500 bill

I’d pick the cash.

Mister Rogers iPhone App

TouchScreen Preschool Games has just released another iPhone app; Mister Rogers. GetUSB.info doesn’t make it a habit of reporting on iPhone applications, but when you know the author and game publisher it’s worth taking a moment and saying “good job.”

Murtha Design had their first block buster iPhone app, ShapeBuilder and from that success Murtha Design has teamed with PBS.org to develop the Mister Rogers iPhone app.
Mister Rogers Make a Journal encourages children to identify and talk about their feelings about their everyday experiences like school, playtime, and friends. The App features an animated version of favorite Neighborhood of Make-Believe character Daniel Striped Tiger, who invites children to make a journal to help them reflect on the things they do and to express how they feel.
What is amazing about this application is the goal of establishing Emotional Development truly works.  I have a 4 and 6 year old child and they both create journals about their day and from simply listening to their interaction with the program, I can learn about my child’s day without pressuring them for daily activity reports and grilling them on “how was school today?”
