Intresting USB gadgets part 2

The squirming tentacle

The squirming tentacle doesn't serve any purpose other than being a conversation starter. Plug it in and it instantly starts wiggling and squirming as if it's alive. Plug a few of them into a USB hub and it will look like you have a small octopus trapped on your desk. 

Bladeless fan

The USB powered desk fan has a bladeless design — no danger of any injury and nothing to get caught in rotating blades. It has a brushless motor that draws in air from the back and pushes it out through the bladeless ring. The airflow is steady but not too powerful — just enough for personal use.

It includes a removable sponge — soak the sponge in water to get cold air from the fan. You can power it via USB or with four AA batteries.


Heated blanket

Made of plush, comforable material, this heating blanket has two USB cables for power; use it with one USB port for low heat and connect both USB ports for high heating.

It uses an infrared carbon fibre heating wire which supposedly has therapeutic health benefits for people with high blood pressure, heart conditions and arthritis. With both USB cables connected, the blanket heats up to around 50 degrees Celcius.

Desk fishquarium

If you're looking to brighten up your desk & take in the calming benefits of live fish, why not get a Fishquarium? It has an LED light, space to keep your office stationary, a built-in clock, calendar and temperature sensor as well as a tiny aquarium.

The USB connection is required for a low voltage pump and filtration system. The clock and calendar uses three AA batteries.

Folding piano

Nothing like a foldable, hide-away USBpowered keyboard to bring out the buding musician in you. This piano offers different tones and even a built in drum pad.

It's also great for kids because it's pill-proof , unbreakable and has no keys hat can chip or fall out. Can also be powred using three AA batteries. 

Portable drum kit

With this nifty gadget, you can carry six different drums in your backpack - all powered by a USB port. The pads are made of silicon, so you know it's durable.

A pair of plastic drumsticks are included, as is a software CD to help record/playback the drums on a computer (Windows only). It's not really a serious musicians instrument since it only recognises one tap (one beat) at a time, but good for a laugh.
