WiFi Hotspot & Flash Drive Cufflinks Connect More Than Your Cuffs

by Lambert Varias

Last year we featured a pair of flash drive cufflinks. Luxury cufflink maker Ravi Ratan ups the ante this year with an even geekier pair of fasteners, perfect for those of you who are known by your loved ones as Support… Tech Support. Not only are these linkers of cuffs a pair of 2GB flash drives, they can also act as WiFi hotspots.

If like me, you thought that the cufflinks would give you a mobile hotspot on their own, prepare to be disappointed. You have to plug either of them to a computer that’s connected to the Internet before it can create a network. You do know you can do this for free with software like Connectify already, right?

It would have been awesome if they worked like the MiFi and could turn a person into a walking wireless network. You’ll surely be a hit at parties. People will flock to you so they can go online and post about this dude who has a Wi-Fi hotspot on his wrists. Eh, I guess they’re still useful, but I’m just not sure if they’re worth the price – Cufflinks.com is selling them for $250 (USD) a pair.
