Mmmm… Donut Flash Drives

Mmmm… Donut Flash Drives
What better way to get your day going than with little chocolate donuts? Check out these little USB flash drives that happen to look like Homer’s favorite high-carb treat. In addition to the traditional chocolate frosting, they’re also available in strawberry (my personal favorite) and some weird green shade too (moldy donut?)

Mac-O-Lanterns Light the Way This Halloween
What better way to use a couple of old Macintosh computers? All it took was a little orange paint for the “pumpkin”, and a JPEG viewer application for the face. This is the best use for old Macs since the original MacQuarium.

Monster Piggy Banks Eat Your Money for Lunch

Monster Piggy Banks Eat Your Money for Lunch
I think these goofy guys look more like space aliens than monsters, but you get the point. Put your money in the mouth of these Money Monsters and they’ll gulp it down without so much as a “thank you”. While they might not be polite, that doesn’t mean the Money Monsters aren’t vocal.

Here’s a speaker for your computer that’s unlike anything I’ve seen before. The Nexspeaker FS-701SW sound system is designed to look like a wee sailboat that you can set on your desk. Left and right channel speakers are embedded into the sails, while the boat’s hull serves as the woofer.

By now, we’re all pretty used to game controllers that can provide rumble feedback, but how’d you like to actually feel the impact of every gunshot and punch when playing your favorite video game?

Interactive artist Andrew Fentem created this cool electronic cube puzzle game loaded with colorful LEDs. The Fentix Cube is controlled by touch as well as through movement.

Eek! Speakers That Look Like Mice (Sorta)

Eek! Speakers That Look Like Mice (Sorta)
In the beginning, there were speakers that looked like dogs, then along came some cats, so I guess it was only a matter of time before the rodentia would feel left out of the audio food chain. Like their mammalian inspiration, these Forus Mouse Speakers feature a long snout and rounded ears.

Error Message of the Day

Error Message of the Day
My previous all-time favorite error message was “Transaction Cannot Start in Firehose Mode,” but I think I have a new one to top the list. Apparently this error occurs when there isn’t anything wrong. The head-scratcher of an error message simply reads “Error: No error occurred.”

USB Terminator: Deterrence via Annoyance
Plug this beefy-looking plastic thug into your USB port, and it’s supposed to scare those who approach it away from your computer.
