ThinkGeek Squirming Tentacle Can’t Even Hold onto Your Data

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 19, 2013

Over the years, we’ve seen some really bizarre USB gadgets turn up. We’ve seen plenty of lights, flash drives, and all manner of other devices.

The product is called the USB Squirming Tentacle, and it does exactly what the name implies. You plug the tentacle into your USB port and it flops around. You can pretend you’re notebook is part Cthulhu if you want.

Honestly, it reminds me more of some sort of alien data sucker gnawing away at your bits and bytes – like a giant leech with suction cups. If you want your own piece of wiggly evil, you can buy one for $14.99 (USD).
