    Weird and Wonderful USB - Light up Your Life with USB Devices


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Even lighting isn't safe from the evil clutches of USB. Is nothing sacred?  USB desk lamps have been around for a long time and have helped many people from having to get out of their seat to switch on the lights, but now, you can add a touch of retro coolness to your workspace by connecting one of a variety of mini glowing lava lamps to any spare USB port.  

    Additionally, the lighting category also sees the festive introduction of this USB powered funky disco ball that spins around and sends multicolored beams of light around the room.

    As well as relaxing you with light, your USB ports can be put to excellent use relaxing you with massage too. For the very reasonable price of around $18 you could be the proud and well-soothed owner of the aptly-named USB Massager.  This small and unusual looking device promises to ease the strains of chronic computer use by vibrating very quickly:

    Don't think that the world of USB massaging stops there however.  You know how, after a good few solid hours of gaming, your vision begins to go a little strange?  Well, with the USB eye massager, you can quickly and easily sooth your sight back to normal.  They may even be an interesting addition to the iBuzz (see below).

    Desk-based guerrilla warfare has been taken to new levels with this innovative product from the UK retail giant Marks & Spencer.  The USB Rocket launcher holds three felt rockets and can apparently be controlled and fired via software and your mouse.  For some reason, this claim has been received with some dubiousness, although I have seen a video of one working.  The rockets seem to go off pretty fast and the range looks good.  I actually saw these for sale at Christmas and thoroughly regret not picking one up.  Your productivity rating will be rock bottom, but your amusement level will be through the roof!

    Speaking of Christmas, all the fun of the holiday season can now be enjoyed while you work or play with an array of Christmas themed USB products including glowing Christmas trees, sparkling Christmas lights, glowing snowmen, snow globes and even a drumming Santa Claus.
