Credit card sized digital voice recorder

Credit card sized digital voice recorder

This credit card sized digital voice recorder is not only anorexic, but white as a hospital. A splash of color wouldn’t have killed them, would it? Anyway, despite it’s ultra white sanitary look, it’s pretty easy on the eyes. In fact, it reminds me of why I love Nurses, all dressed in white, nice curves…

It measures just 6.5 millimeters thick and has 1GB of built-in storage, a handy flip-out USB connector, and flush-mounted controls. But it’s not just a Voice Recorder, it can also be used as an MP3 player and USB flash drive. The recording is in high quality WAV file format and files can be handled easily, just copy or delete like a typical USB storage device. Of course the advantage with this device is that you can take it just about anywhere. Pick one up for $69.99.

Wooden USB clock radio is easy on the eyes

Wooden USB clock radio is easy on the eyes

This retro looking radio has a very simple design marrying the old with the new. It’s powered via the USB port on your computer and will give you the current time and weather conditions. It features two round portal like displays on the front. One display shows you the current week on the top, the hour and minute, and the bottom part displays the year, month and date. The other display gives you information about humidity and temperature.

It’s also available in a smaller version with a few features missing. Instead it has a count down function and a birthday reminder. I just like the fact that these remind me of my grandfather’s electronics. They are basic with no bells and whistles. Sometimes it’s nice to have something low-key.

USB credit card launched in South Korea

USB credit card launched in South Korea

Shinhan Card, a South Korean company, unveiled a new kind of credit card yesterday. A USB credit card. It functions as a contactless credit card in stores. To use it online, you just insert it into your USB port. It enters your credit card information for you.

It should be noted that the USB device itself cannot be used as a portable storage device. In other words, money out/No data in. The company is hoping that it catches on among the franchise stores. I can easily see this taking off, especially if they make it so that the device can actually be used for storage.

Getting cozy with the USB Hand Warmer

Posted in USB by Nino Marchetti on December 14th, 2007

usb-hand-warmer.jpgThe never-ending flow of gadgets which use USB for power can sometimes cause my head to hurt. Especially when I see ones which promise to warm parts of your body. One of the most recent to journey down this road is the USB Hand Warmer, priced at around $11.

The USB Hand Warmer, as the name implies, warms your hand. You plug this little device into your computer’s USB port to draw the 5v necessary to power it. You wait it appears close to half an hour for it to heat up to 50 degrees. You can then unplug it if you so desire and you have a heater to wrap your cold hands around.

The USB exercise mouse tests your typing speed

USB exercise mouse

We’ve all seen mice running round and round on their treadmill in cages. This is a similar concept. But in this case the mouse is fake and it peddles on an exercise bike instead of running wildly in a circular carousel. Just plug this little guy into your USB port and the faster you type, the faster he pedals. The speed is displayed on an LCD display screen

This is a fun way to improve your typing speed. Just don’t make it your life’s goal to turn this guy into Lance Armstrong. And try not to abuse him too much. I can see great office competitions, as people vie for the fastest speeds.

iMONO USB hub with individual power switches

Posted in USB by Reuben Drake on December 7th, 2007

iMONO 4-port USB hub has individual on/off switchesiMONO took the simple USB hub a small step further by adding an individual sliding switch which turns on and off each of the 4 USB ports separately. It also has LED status indicators for each port and for the source cable so you can see what’s on and what’s not at a glance. At first this might not seem like too handy of a feature but you’ll be thanking me when the person on the other end of your Availabot can’t seem to maintain a connection or you get tired of plugging in your eye massager every day. It also could help save some electricity by conveniently turning off those peripherals when your not using them.

USB Digital Video rocket camera

What could be better then launching objects via your USB port? It doesn’t always have to be foam darts aimed at your co-workers either. This rocket is made by Estes, the famous makers of model rockets for the last 50 years or so and it comes ready to fly. What you get is a view of the rocket’s liftoff and flight from the rocket’s point of view. That’s because it has an impact-resistant digital camera in the nose cone.

It can reach as high as 300 feet and the onboard camera can record a 12-second video at 640 x 480 pixel resolution. The other option is to take up to three pictures per flight.(It can store 15). Just connect it to your PC with the USB cable to download the flight video.

Keep your data safe with the Maria USB drive

Virgin Mary USB Drive

Finally, a USB drive for geeks who want to put some religion into their USB port and their lives. Normally it’s only after you’ve lost your important data that you would pray to Holy Mary, Mother Of God. Now you can do it at your leisure and hopefully she will listen and keep your data safe.

It will act as a good reminder to geeks to keep some religion in their lives. When she is hooked up, her red LED heart will beat, indicating how the Holy Mother watches over your computer’s innards. (If only she sang “Turn On Your Heartlight, huh?) Her halo is engraved with the prayer “Oh Maria, keep my data safe!”. So, it must work.

usb-christmas-tree.jpgHow do you spruce up your office space around the holidays? Is there a Christmas tree in the lobby of your building? Christmas lights hung down the corridors with care?

And if you want to be the envy of your department then the easiest way to do it is by getting your own USB Christmas tree.

Best of all it’s easy to put away when the holidays have gone; disassembly time is roughly 10 seconds or less.

Logitec answers the Stage Rack

Posted in Adapters,Dock,Hard Drives,USB by Reuben Drake on November 25th, 2007

Logitec Cradle eSata HDDBecause of all the attention gained by the HDD Stage Rack which gives users a convenient “dock” for their hard drives, Logitec has answered with a version of their own. The eSata HDD Cradle from Logitec seems to work very similarly to the Stage Rack supporting 2.5″ and 3.5″ SATA hard drives, but no IDE. This model also looks a little bit more stylish and additionally houses a 4-port USB hub through it’s existing USB connection, making it a little more useful.

GeekStuff4U has the Logitec hard drive cradle available for pre-order now priced at $72.31 and will start shipping at the end of December, but unfortunately without support for IDE it doesn’t look like it adds much more value for it’s significantly higher price.

USB Snowbot will assimilate your cold geek heart

I’ve seen alot of cool robot toys and desk accessories over the years. I have to admit, I have never seen the combination of robot and snowman. It pleases me.

Not only is this robot bent on taking over the human race, it apparently has the winter season in mind for it’s objective. It’s got articulated arms and an eye scanner like a cylon from Battlestar Galactica, which can change color. You can also control the speed of the scanner with a knob. They say that it also has Authentic Snowbot Sound.

USB optical liquid aquarium mouse

USB optical liquid aquarium mouse

I’m not sure what the fascination with putting fish(fake or real) into strange devices lately is all about, but combining fish with gadgetry is getting a little out of hand. The other day I told you about the Fish In Space aquarium. Now I bring you the aquarium mouse, complete with fake fish.

Apparently, you can order a mouse aquarium with fish OR one with a little rubber ducky. I suppose if you really love fish and have a fish themed life, like sea-life wallpaper and a cabinet full of fish figurines, you might want to point and click with a liquid mouse.
