SolidAlliance, makers of wacky things like USB drives that look like sushi and other edibles, has just revealed their latest creation.
The Tengu is an interactive device that displays an animated face using an array of LEDs.
Here’s a combo gadget that seems like a pretty good idea on paper, but I don’t know how practical it really is. This USB device from Lexibook mixes an optical mouse, a calculator and a numeric keypad in a single package.
Here’s another strange USB device from the Far East. Designed to massage your cares away, these USB-powered eyeball massagers look like they’ll easily poke an eye out if you’re not careful.
Available in wholesale lots from Sundayo, I’m not sure how much they cost.
The answer to that question is not “with it’s nose.” Instead, it smells like roses or peppermints thanks to this weird new USB device.
As if smelly colognes and incense weren’t bad enough, now we have to worry about odoriferous computers.
This add-on for the Nintendo DS not only lets you play MP3 files, but it lets you run tons of homebrew games on the portable console.

Here’s a cool way to keep cool at your desk.
These retro USB fans from Willstyle look like some sort of cage fan from an old computer, but they’re all new. They have a substantial ball-bearing fan motor, and can really crank out some wind.
Fresh off the shelves from Hong Kong’s Brando come these new multimedia speakers with a strange name.
They may be calling these “Angel Speakers,” but I actually think they look more like twirling ballerinas (or Whirling Dervishes for that matter.)
Do you long for the days of the simple, elegantly designed gamepad controllers from Nintendo’s classic gaming systems?

Here’s a fun one that must have slipped past my radar screen when it hit the circuit last year. This USB-powered clothing is designed to keep you cool on those warm Summer days.
As long as you don’t mind looking like a complete fool, the air conditioned shirt plugs into your computer and blows air onto your sweaty body, keeping you cool all day long.
Sometimes you just have one of those stressful days where nothing goes your way. Now you can take out your frustrations using this device that attaches to your computer.
Just open up the cover on the USB Stress Panic Button and smack it with your fist.
I know these new webcams are supposed to be playful and cute, but their zombie-like gazes and weird headgear just creep me out.
Their belly-mounted cameras and butt-mounted USB connectors really push the weird factor over the edge.
Speakers are often be the most boring, utilitarian looking devices on your desktop. On occasion, however, a set of speakers will come along that looks as good (or maybe even better) than they sound.
Case in point, these Boynq Blox speakers.
