Get a Tan While You Surf the Web

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  January 28, 2007

Didn’t think you could maintain that deep, dark, tropical tan during these cold winter days? Well thanks to this handy USB gadget, you can keep that (un)healthy glow all year long.

USB Desktop Tanning Center

ThinkGeek’s USB Desktop Tanning Center lets you roast your epidermis to three shades of tan, ranging from Starbucks Vanilla Latte to Ooompa Loompa. It even comes with a pair of those googly eyeball protectors so you can look cool while getting your tan on.

After reading more of the product description, I realized that you’d be pretty hard-pressed to power four 100-watt UV heat lamps via USB. Hopeful that this was an April Fool’s gag, I then checked my calendar, and realized it is indeed January. Then I clicked “Add to Cart”, and I was so relieved.
