The USB Missile Launcher Is Back

Everyone loves a good USB missile launcher and Thanko has released yet another version.  The first thing you will notice is the cosmetic change to look more like an Army missile launcher, but Brando reports hardware changes as well.  The new missile launcher was retooled to have more power for longer distance and the software was updated to be less buggy. As with all previous models, you get four foam missiles, software which controls the cannons up, down, left and right.  You have the option to go into stealth mode and turn off the sound effects and of course, all this powered via USB. Software includes support for Windows 7, although not sure about 32bit verse 64bit.  Priced right at $36 + shipping. Continue Reading

Cleanliness is Next to USB Geekiness

No one likes the dentist and it’s tough getter there twice a year like everyone should.  So to help fight the war against plaque you can invest a bit of money into this USB toothbrush cleaning kit.  Powered by UV light, the USB toothbrush cleaning kit will sanitize your brush while you’re out getting your teeth covered in sugar-bugs.

The UVmini [as they call it] comes in two models.  A USB version and a USB + battery version.  Obviously the second version is geared toward the germ-a-fobes who travel and uses a lithium battery which can cycle 10 cleanings.  I would opt for the battery pack as keeping your toothbrush cleaning kit tethered to your computer’s USB port is a bit ridiculous [yet again, another reason to get a USB outlet kit]. We don’t have any price information as of yet but they should start hitting Pan-Asian vendors shortly. The rest of the world will have to wait a bit longer. Continue Reading

USB Boob – Ya That’s Right – USB Boob

So what could you get a guy who has everything?  How about a USB boob lamp.  That’s right, a LED light in the shape of a single boob, nipple and all.  The USB boob lamp will activate upon touch [of course] and illuminate a soft glow to brighten your surroundings.

This is the first I’ve heard of this product, and interestingly enough, I found it just near Father’s Day.  Granted, it’s not something you’d like to receive from your kid, but maybe a great joke to plan on “conservative” Dad. At just $11 USD how can you resist? So here is the kicker, to make the LED turn on, you simply brush the nipple.  To turn it off, brush the nipple again.  Hmm, sounds about right.

USB Cuff Links For A Spy

James Bond could use a gadget like the USB cuff links.  How else could you slurp GBs of data from a secure area then waltz out without anyone knowing.  Ok granted that’s a poor example of how you could use the USB cuff links, but it makes you wonder, they would be kinda cool. Designer Ravi Ratan is looking to up your geek look with the expensive $195 links and with storage to 4GBs no less.  For those seriously considering this, also consider the possibility for engraving of up to eight letters.

Facade Printer Paints Life Size Graffiti

So here is a new twist on the graffiti art, the facade printer. Technically, it’s not used for graffiti in the traditional sense, but rather a new marketing method for a different print medium. Buildings.

The facade printer is an inkdot printer which looks like a paint gun mounted on a portable deck. The paint gun is controlled via software and connects via USB cable. From here the facade printer uses stepper motors to control the firing position of the barrel and point the end towards it’s next mapped position.

Through this technology it is now easy to make a pointillism type image on buildings, bridges, or any large scale surface. I think this is a particularly interesting method for retails to promote products to the masses much like a freeway billboard. Visit the facadeprinter.org website to learn more or what the video below.

Beer Can Humidifier – Cure Hang Overs?

We all know that hang overs are caused from dehydration.  We’ve all [our loyal fan base] seen USB humidifiers powered by our computers.  Today I’ve come across the combination beer can and USB humidifier, which now begs the questions, could a humidifier help a hang over?  After all, it’s spitting out water all night long which you are breathing in.

USB humidifier

If it could only be that simple. The beer can humidifier appears to be a cool mist product, powered by USB and holds about 8oz of water. The Grunhaus can includes a timer to regulate the time in which you get your “treatment.” The Grunhaus Beer Can humidifier isn’t cheap [but cool] and comes in at $62. Continue Reading
