Lacie Moskeyto: the Littlest USB Flash Drive You’Ll See Today

Lacie Moskeyto: the Littlest USB Flash Drive You’Ll See Today
LaCie today rolled out an unusual new USB flash drive, which is so tiny you can leave it plugged into your computer all the time and never notice it sticking out of the side. The MosKeyto flash drive is just 20mm long, and 14mm of that is the USB connector – leaving just a 6mm stub sticking out of your computer.

C-3PO USB Flash Drives (Sorta)

C-3PO USB Flash Drives (Sorta)
OK, these aren’t really C-3PO USB flash drives, but they do bear a resemblance. I’ve rarely seen golden robots of any kind, except in Star Wars. This cute ‘bot also looks like it’s got the body of a LEGO minifig.

USB Battleship: You Sank My Flash Drive!

USB Battleship: You Sank My Flash Drive!
Here’s a clever new idea for a USB hub. Designed by Giffin’ Termeer for Kikkerland (and presumably inspired by their earlier Containership Powersupply), the USB Battleship probably isn’t seaworthy, but it is fully capable of connecting your various flash drives and peripherals to your computer.

View-Master Goes Digital

View-Master Goes Digital
For those too young to remember, a View-Master is a device that shows pictures in stereoscopic 3D. The effect is achieved by placing a pair of film slides for each eye to see, to give the illusion of depth.

USB Packing Ac Outlet Concept is Something All Geeks Need

USB Packing Ac Outlet Concept is Something All Geeks Need
My office is probably drawing more power from the wall outlet than some homes do altogether. I have all manner of gadgets, multiple computers, and other devices plugged into the walls. I long ago ran out of outlets in the office and simply daisy chain new surge protectors when I need to plug something in.

Sharp Plasma Cluster Ion Generator: Unfortunately Not a Weapon

Sharp Plasma Cluster Ion Generator: Unfortunately Not a Weapon
So there I was, looking for something awesome for you guys to look at, when I came upon what is possibly the best named gadget – the Sharp Plasma Cluster Ion Generator. I was hoping for a hill-sized cannon copied from Protoss blueprints, but it turns out it’s a skin care device for women.

Ixp1-500 USB iPad Adapter: Cashing in on Apple’s USB Stupidity

Ixp1-500 USB iPad Adapter: Cashing in on Apple’s USB Stupidity
The iPad can be charged via USB using the proprietary charge/sync cable. But on older Macs, and worse, in some modern PCs, sometimes the darned thing won’t charge. It seems that the problem is that the iPad doesn’t get enough power from the USB ports of slightly older machines.

Star Wars Mimobots Use the Force and Enter Generation 6

Star Wars Mimobots Use the Force and Enter Generation 6
If I am to be honest, my least favorite film of the first three originals is The Empire Strikes Back. The bit where Luke gets crammed inside the dead tauntaun was kind of cool. I did like that flick better than say any of the new trilogy, especially the one with Jar Jar Binks.

4-Port PS3 Controller USB Charger for $8: No Reason Not to Buy One

4-Port PS3 Controller USB Charger for $8: No Reason Not to Buy One
…unless of course you already have a charger. Or you only have one controller. Or you don’t have a PS3. Seriously though, while this isn’t the cheapest PS3 controller charger out there, I’m pretty sure it’s the cheapest 4-port charger.

Flash Rods Cram Storage Into Toy Cars

Flash Rods Cram Storage Into Toy Cars
My son has no interest in anything resembling technology at this point in his life unless it has to do with video games or watching Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons on Hulu. He does like Hot Wheels cars though and has collected them since he was really young.

Power-Strip USB Hub Lets You Switch Ports On and Off

Power-Strip USB Hub Lets You Switch Ports On and Off
I’ve never had much luck with USB hubs, especially the cheap ones. It doesn’t take them long to fry so I found that it’s best to plug in/out ports or spend more on a decent hub.

Flipper USB Connector is Pure Frickin’ Genius

Flipper USB Connector is Pure Frickin’ Genius
Let’s be honest amongst friends, we all end up flipping our USB devices back and forth in a vain effort to get the damn things to plug in at some point. You try to push your flash drive into the port, it resists, you flip it over and still not joy, flip it again and finally you cram the damn thing into the port in frustration.

Heinz Can of Beans Amplifer: Musical Fruit

Heinz Can of Beans Amplifer: Musical Fruit
While it’s not as cool as those mini Marshall and ORANGE amps, this is certainly one of the more unusual portable amplifiers I’ve seen. Hand-built by some guy simply going by the name “Marcn,” this isn’t any ordinary can of beans.

Neckey Laptop Stand: Everyone Can See Eye to Eye on This Design

Neckey Laptop Stand: Everyone Can See Eye to Eye on This Design
One of the cons of using a laptop is that the screen is positioned below eye level, causing people to hunch and overall be in an uncomfortable sitting posture. It’s easy to solve this problem if you’re at home or in the office – you can either get a monitor, or use some sort of prop to raise the laptop’s screen and then use a separate keyboard.

Pepper Mouth Punishes You for All Those F-Bombs You Drop Online

Pepper Mouth Punishes You for All Those F-Bombs You Drop Online
The number of just plain stupid gadgets that you can buy and connect to your USB port is bewildering. The new Pepper Mouth concept gadget is one of the dumbest I have seen though. It assumes we want to stop calling the idiots we talk to on IM or in chat session’s names and cursing at them.

Belkin Conserve Valet USB Charging Station: Plug It and Forget It
Now you don’t have to turn on your computer just to charge your USB gadgets. Belkin’s new product, the Conserve Valet, accommodates up to 4 USB-based devices at once.
