Are there spies and sleuths reading our blog? Silly question. Of course there are. They monitor everything. From a nondescript white van no doubt. Listen, you didn’t hear it from me but Brando is selling flash drives that look like a lipstick.
If you’re looking for an easy way to stream music to your stereo, you might want to check out the playGo. The 4″ x 4″ x 1″ box looks like a nice little device, but the $450 price tag is definitely a turn-off.
I’ve seen speakers come in a bunch of different shapes, but stiletto heels? While these Gimme Tunes speakers aren’t a new product, they are certainly distinctive, and a must for every fashion victim. The only thing missing is a brand name on them, like Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin.
While I doubt that Brando asked to license these from Namco, they’re certainly fun lamps for your work area. These USB Light-Sensitive Ghost Lamp’s light up like a Christmas tree whenever it senses that you need more light, all the while looking vaguely like the ghosts from Pac-Man.
You! Shinobi! I can’t see you but I know you’re there. I’ve already shown you the kunai USB drive, which is definitely fit for a ninja but is priced for a shogun. If you need a stealthy and pointy flash drive but are strapped for cash, just follow the instructions of Instructables user eyefail and you’ll end up with something like this:
Oh Brando. I just knew you couldn’t stay practical and logical for long. One minute I’m writing about a perfectly sensible product with your name on it, the next you’re sending e-mails about… about this:
Music lovers and enthusiasts will remember the Roland TR-808, that was actually one of the first programmable drum machines ever made.
It was introduced in the early 1980s, which actually makes it several years older than I am.
I often knock Brando for their crazy gadgets, but the truth is the company does sell a lot of practical and cheap devices. Take this thoughtfully designed cooling pad for example. It has a USB-powered keyboard attached to it and is fairly adjustable.
Here’s a flash drive that will fit right in with Computer Choppers‘ and Stuart Hughes‘ luxury gadgets. Speaking of both manufacturers, did you know that the two have an ongoing spat? Anyway. While we’ve featured a gold brick-like flash drive before, this one really does have gold on it.
The mainstream news outlets may have moved on to cover more current issues, but the damage done by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan will take years and millions of dollars to repair. If you want to help, you can donate to the Japanese Red Cross and get a 2GB flash drive with Incubot’s Japan Relief Series.
Ring another death knell for the optical drive. While still popular, the optical drive’s days began to be numbered when netbooks came out. Apple is slowly but surely leaving them out of their new computers. Now an upcoming product aims to make them even more obsolete.
This USB flash drive can be clipped anywhere, thanks to the clever way that it was designed. Since USB drives are becoming smaller and smaller, it’s gets easier to lose them. This is one of the reasons why this design makes good sense.
