We’ve seen a couple of official Minecraft merchandise from ThinkGeek, but this is by far the best one yet – a USB-powered, miniature Nether Portal. It emits a hum that, together with its serene purple glow, is sure to calm you down as soon as you plug it in. Oh and it can also send items to hell.
That’s right folks. Other companies offer cloud storage, but the desktop Nether Portal offers underworld storage. What are the advantages of storing items in the Nether? With cloud storage, you’ll be compelled to store important files to maximize the space, but the Nether’s hostile environment is also the perfect place to destroy or banish actual objects! It goes without saying that you have to be careful using the portal’s capabilities.
I hope someone else in their office has a Nether Portal.
ThinkGeek is selling the Minecraft USB Desktop Nether Portal for $40 (USD). Or not.
