The folks at Art Lebedev Studio are having a little April Fools’ fun once again, with funny and just slightly absurd designs with neat concept art. One of their “latest designs” is the Cylindrus, a USB hub shaped like a magician’s top hat and, well, actually that’s all there is to it.
Chargers and data cables are very useful but it can be quite a pain to lug them around. Scosche presents an elegant solution for iPhone and iPod Touch owners, with the flipSYNC USB charger and transfer cable.
I have about 163 different USB gadgets on my desk at any given time – all fighting for the six USB ports my computer has. To fix this issue I have a USB hub plugged in that more than quadruples the number of USB devices I can connect at once ensuring my humping dog flash drive has all the juice it needs to defile my computer.
Apricorn’s latest USB device is perfect for people who only have a netbook for a computer. In exchange for one of your tiny computer’s USB port, the Aegis NetDock gives you 4 USB ports – 2 of them powered – a dual-layer DVD burner, and a 2.5″ SATA hard drive enclosure.
Are you addicted to making your avatars and Miis that look like tiny doppelgänger of yourself? Then you might want to check out these cool USB minifig people that can be ordered to your own custom design specifications.
If you’re in the mood for some tasty treats, you’ll probably need to eat more than these USB flash drives, masquerading as tiny little portions of food.
These Mini Plus flash drives are available in a variety of styles, ranging from a relatively nutritious portion of sushi to a plate with one jelly, one glazed, and one chocolate-frosted with sprinkles.
I’ll start out by saying that I had no idea what a Dodobongo was before I wrote this article. But from what I can tell, he’s some sort of goofy-looking animated dog from Japan. Whether or not you know what they heck he is, this USB version of the disproportionate mutt looks like it could be fun sitting on your desk.
From the House of Insane Ideas comes this feature packed peripheral for geeks on the go. The Rii Mini Wireless Keyboard has 69 LED-backlit keys, and what Brando claims is the “World’s First Touchpad”. Oh Brando.
Unveiled at CES 2010, mPower Technologies‘ Emergency Illuminator is a powerhouse of a flashlight. It contains two rechargeable and replaceable CR123 batteries for normal use. But it also has a reserve battery, which can hold its full capacity for up to 20 years.
Isn’t it funny how businesses seem to love and hate their customers at once? Take Apple. Their OS is extremely easy to use and is in my experience just a tad more dependable than Windows. Yet all that user-friendliness goes out the window when it comes to hardware, what with the limited (or missing) ports.
With Apple’s insistence on being different, Macbook-owners like me have to pay extra for video adapters if we want to connect our laptop to a monitor. Wisair’s wireless USB DisplayDock aims to simplify the transition from a mobile to a desktop environment by offering a single device that not only connects a Macbook with a monitor, but also with a keyboard, mouse and even speakers.
Hey guys, remember the Cideko air keyboard/mouse combo I was lusting after last June? According to German site Netbook News, Cideko has partnered with MSI to be able to reach out more customers.
For those too lazy to read my first article, screw you.
I was thinking to myself just the other day that the only way my flash drive could possibly be better was if it looked like the polar bear from Lost. Even better would be if I had to rip the bear in half to plug it into the USB port on my computer.
I think that’s actually an understatement. The Rotobotmouse is one of the stranger computer mice that I’ve seen in my travels – and I’ve seen lots of mouses.
Created by artist Aaron Ristau, the Rotobotmouse definitely has some steampunk underpinnings, but it’s really got a look that’s all its own.
