Bakery mistake results in the creation of a USB Flash Drive Cake

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2009

Bakery mistake results in the creation of a USB Flash Drive CakeWe like geek cakes ’round these parts, as evidenced by our not one, but two compilations of geek cakes. But if you want a custom cake from a bakery, you better be specific about what it is that you want. Otherwise you end up with cake fail.

So check out this funny incident. Some guy orders a custom cake and asked that a photo of a friend be integrated into the decoration. Simple enough right? So he delivers the photo as a .JPG on a Lexar Jumpdrive Trio flash drive. And look what ended up on the cake.

USB bookmark nerd glasses

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on January 23rd, 2009

USB nerd glassesLooks like the good old nerd glasses are back. They never left really. Worn by the likes of Buddy Holly in years past and every other hipster in the present, nerd glasses are all the rage. Among nerds. Here they are in a new form. Beginning in March, this 2-mm thin 2GB USB bookmark can be purchased for $29.

Bullies might have to change their taunt of “Four eyes” to “Four eyes, two gigs”. These will likely fly off the virtual shelves as everyone loves nerdy stuff. But, a bookmark? Really? What the hell. You saw what dork specs did for Superman. They fooled everybody into thinking he and Clark Kent were different people. Of course there’s always the chance that people in Metropolis were just plain stupid too.

Cyber Fox USB drive

Cyber Fox USB driveMeet Cyber Fox. You get to decapitate him every time you use your flash drive and shove his lifeless body into your laptop. It will serve as a good warning to all of those other cute and furry critters out there. Great for the dude with the anger problem. Might be therapeutic to use this thing whenever you get mad.

It would be pretty funny to see some guy get all agro and give a grunt as he rips this fox’s head off, flings it across the room and jams the body in the USB port. Just repeat, whenever you get mad. Sadly this fox doesn’t even look like the Firefox fox, or it might be cool.

Drive someone nuts: USB Phantom KeystrokerApril fools day will be here before you know it. Get prepared now and be ready when the day comes. This USB Keystroker is all about messing up your victim’s keyboard and mouse movements. Just hook this USB Keystroker into one of the USB ports of his or her computer and it will start randomly locking the CAPs button of the keyboard, making keystrokes and jiggling the mouse around the screen.

The poor sucker will think their computer is possessed. It also allows you to choose from three levels of speed for it’s phantom activities. It looks just like a flash drive. Just plug it into any USB port in the back of a computer, where it’s hardly noticeable. At only $13 it’s almost too much fun not to purchase.

Poken USB figures exchange contacts with huge hands

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2008

Poken USB figures exchanges contacts with huge handsThese weird little figures are called Poken. They let you exchange contact details with someone else in a physical way. With high fives. And hey, Poken are cute. Why the hell not? The USB device comes in four varieties: bee, alien, panda and flaming skeleton. Odd combination to be sure, but I’m assuming they all get along just swell.

Just put your Poken’s hand up to your buddy’s, then when you plug yours into a USB port later, your friend’s contacts will automatically sync to your Poken account, which propogates to Facebook, MySpace and other networks. I’m sure it will all work out fine, because surely everyone that you know also has a Poken. Which is a requirement.

H-Bouya USB toy is creepy, confusing, baldThe latest USB toy to come out of Japan is named H-Bouya. We’ll be honest here, it leaves us with a creepy, not safe feeling, mixed with confusion and please don’t stab us with a usb stick.

Okay, so what does it do? We are not really sure. One thing we know is that it turns red and blinks its eyes every time you hit the letter “H”. For some reason. Mostly it will just give you a crazy-eyed staring, mental beat-down without moving a limb. The objective may be to put you in a coma and report back to HQ via USB. When enough of us are asleep at our desks, it’s plan will be enter the next phase, whatever that is.
