Turn Your Desktop Into a Top Secret Base

by Paul Strauss

Japanese toy and electronics maker TakaraTomy is now offering this set of crazy USB gadgets that will make your desktop look like some sort of top secret military base.

Takara Emergency Buttons

Start off with the Big Red Emergency Button (¥3990/$34 USD), which looks pretty ominous, but merely shuts down your Windows PC. Then, hook up the Glitter Panel (¥5985/$51 USD), a 16×16 LED grid which provides you with remote access to desktop widgets such as CPU usage, e-mail notification, a clock and a scrolling message board.

If you want to see how these gadgets look in action, TakaraTomy has posted video clips of them here. If you speak fluent Japanese, or are feeling adventurous, electronics retailer Bic has them for sale.
