USB Wrist Watch Almost Sounds Like Good Idea

Some things sound better on paper than real life.  Take, for example, this stylish wrist watch that doubles as a USB storage device.  First, it is so clever, you always need a watch, you always need your USB drive, put the two together and it’s a perfect match.

Aaaah, but wait, there is a flaw.  The USB flash drive is on the wrist band.  This means you [most likely] need to remove the watch from your person to use the USB stick for any length of time.  What a waste.

Couldn’t they put the USB flash drive on the other side of the of the wrist band? Continue Reading

Cigarette Lighter As USB Spy Camera

So what are some basic elements you need to overcome to use the USB spy camera packed up as a cigarette lighter?  First, you need to be someone who smokes…or looks like someone who smokes.  It wouldn’t be easy to use this product on your friends, if they know you don’t smoke.  Second, you need to be willing to let the world know you’re a smoker.  This probably isn’t a big deal for most people in the world, but being from California, it’s something no one approves of.

So if you’ve gotten past the stigma, then the cigarette lighter spy camera is a viable option to bust your best friend, wife or boss with suspicious activity. With 2GB of built in memory, you’ll never have a shortage of memory for audio or video surveillance.  In addition, the video quality is fairly good at 640 x 480 pixels and a respectable 16 frames per second [respectable given the size of the device at just 5.3 x 3.7 x 1.2 cm].  Once your mission is complete, and you feel something good was caught on tape, simply download the content via USB and make your case.

New York Port Authority Approves Statue Of Liberty USB Drive

Not really, but if they had too – they would.  The Statue of Liberty USB drive is a perfect replica of the original at Liberty Island.  The manufacturer put great detail into make sure the smallest grooves and carves match the real Statue of Liberty.

We’ve seen some crazy USB drives in our day, and today I’m dropping a note on the latest update.  Today I bring you the Titleist USB golf ball. I don’t believe the Titleist USB golf ball is available at retail stores – this image looks like a virtual drawing – but sure would be cool.

USB Birthday Cake – Best Surprise Ever

Engadget reported on this just a few minutes ago, “USB cake design worst birthday surprise in history” but I beg to differ…at least for a guy like me.

True this USB birthday cake is ridiculous looking, but for a guy like me who spends most of his days working with, or thinking about USB, I would LMAO if this was presented to me. So good on you, Mr. Birthday Cake Designer. Although Engadget did have some good comedy with their post: Continue Reading

USB For Kids – Construction Site

GetUSB.info has a category called “Useless Novelty” and it’s used for those gadgets that really don’t make sense, or just ridiculous.  Scrolling through just the first two pages we have items like:  USB Breast Warmers, USB Volcano or USB Cabbage.

Today I add to the list with the USB construction set.  Sure the photo looks cool and sure it seems like fun if you’re an 8 year old, but is it really worth it? I guess if you have a train set with a laptop that sits in the middle of the track you could make up “a scene” but that’s far and few between. On the slight chance you are excited about this useless novelty item, you’ll need to source it from an on-line vendor since the USB construction site is only available in Japan.  Cost is about $20.

iPhone Custom Flash Drive

Gizmodo did an interesting post today, it’s as though they knew I purchased an iPhone over the weekend.  Yes, I’m part of the “cool kid crowd.”  Giz did a post on a new iPhone custom flash drive.  It’s a cute little thang, with two eyes, a red dot mouth where the home button is and two munchkin feet.

By pulling the top rubber lid, you expose the USB for connection.  No word on the price, but you can visit the site if you really need one. Continue Reading

Make Your Move: USB Breast Warmers

usb breast warmers

I found this USB powered gadget at Boingboing, and I must admit the author, Joel Johnson does such a great job with the post, I’ve got to publish the whole entry:
Ladies, a question: For years I have offered my services as a breast warmer out of what I must now admit was a desire not for the comfort of your more prominent glands, but instead an attempt to put my mittens on your kittens. But unlike my campaign to make sure your bosom is extraordinarily clean by barging into your shower with gallons of frothy soap — motivated purely by Christian hygienic charity — I was not entirely positive that your mams got, you know, chilly. Do they? That Thanko has created a USB-powered breast warming system has turned my world upside down. In fact, I’m getting a bit dizzy. If only there were some warm, soft place to lay my head.

USB Buffalo Speakers

Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam.  Where the deer and the antelope play. Where seldom is heard a discouraging word And the skies are not cloudy all day.
Might be the perfect song for this USB buffalo speaker system by Gadget4all.  With freaky looking blue LED lights to illuminate the eyes and horns, you’ll be impressed with these speakers even in the dark.  Not the strangest USB powered gadget, but it’s up there.
