USB Washing Machine Wakes You But Doesn’t Do LaundryJoe from USB Geek sent me an email about his new USB washing machine alarm clock, I thought we hit the mother-load.Â We didn’t.Â But lets stop and think for a minute, could we – one day -Â have a USB washing machine?Â It’s possible if the USB 3.0 spec really boosts the power over the bus to 12v.Â Until then, the USB washing machine can only be an alarm clock.
The USB washing machine plays four crappy alarm clock sounds along with an hourly chime and LED signal.Â Perfect for late night slumber. In case you have a military friend you can set the hours for 12 or 24 and power the gadget via USB or two double A batteries. At just $20 you can please any gadget lover who’s a germaphobic and likes to sleep in. Visit the USBGeek web page and get a sample of the alarm clock sounds.Â Music to the ears [not].
