Here’s a great gift for Rubik’s Cube fans – the officially-licensed Rubik’s Speaker. Fortunately – or unfortunately for hardcore fans – the speaker isn’t puzzling to use. It’s powered via USB and has a 3.5mm jack.
I have to admit that these lights are kind of cute, especially if you spend a lot of hours in front of a computer and love Super Mario Bros. While I can’t say if they’ll give you an extra life or make you grow bigger, these new green and red mushrooms from Super Mario Bros still look pretty cool.
It’s great that more and more gadgets are compatible with USB chargers, but if you don’t have enough ports or outlets you’ll still be stuck with a dead device. Fortunately CableJive, the same company that makes the convenient duaLink USB sync cable, has a solution: the dualCharge and dualCarCharge chargers.
To the best of my recollection, the Atari 400 had one of the worst keyboards in the history of computers. I was always convinced that Atari made the 400 suck so badly so people would buy an Atari 800 instead.
These 35mm film canisters-turned flash drives are probably the closest we’re gonna get from that neat digital film concept. If you really miss lugging canisters around whenever you go out and take pictures, then these are the flash drives for you.
This new adapter from Thanko lets users output video from an iPad, iPhone 4 or 4th gen iPod Touch to any HDMI-equipped display (via an HDMI cable of course) without fear of running out of juice, as long as you have a spare powered USB port nearby.
This concept design isn’t that far off. Almost everyone has some spare memory cards that need to be used in some form or fashion. There’s not much you can do with one once you get a newer, bigger one, so this concept that collects these microSD cards and turns the combined storage into a larger USB flash drive makes a lot of sense.
If you are a Mac user that likes to record things like live music or podcasts, a new device has surfaced from Apogee called the Duet 2. This is the follow up to the original Duet and is designed specifically for Mac users.
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.
I’ve certainly seen my share of unusual digital cameras, but this is definitely something I haven’t seen before. The pint-sized (and badly named) Fuuvi Pick isn’t much larger than a flash drive, but it’s actuall a digital camera, capable of capturing both stills and videos.
Here’s a fairly future-proof hub for USB-gadget hoarders. Chinavision’s Warp Speed hub has 12 ports, 6 of them USB 3.0 compatible. Unless you’re really an early adopter, I think that’s more than enough.
I have never liked working on a notebook computer if I can help it. I know a lot of people that work from notebooks exclusively in the office and out. I want room to spread out and a nice thin keyboard and a high sensitivity mouse when I work.
There are lots of ways of accessing your files remotely, the easiest of which in my opinion would be to use Dropbox. But if you need more storage, or are just too stubborn to learn how to set-up your own Dropbox account, then you might want to check out iTwin.
After all of the different hacked LEGO USB minifig flash drives out there, LEGO has released official USB minifigs, and they look pretty good. They can only store up to 2GB, but the flash drive is hidden inside the minifig.
