USB powered chainsaw

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2009

isawWhen it comes to USB gadgets, it doesn’t get any cooler or deadlier than this. It’s a reminder that we can push USB technology further when it comes to power tools, whether for taking care of odd jobs or hacking a fake plastic tree.

Thank you usbchainsaw.com for showing us the way. Sure, it’s likely a hoax, but USB powered saws are something to aspire to. Office arguments can now end in dismemberment. And next time your secretary gets your coffee wrong…look out. Hit the link for a video.

USB Shaking Hip provides desktop booty shaking

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2009

USB Shaking Hip provides desktop booty shakingThe USB Shaking Hip has a single function in life. To shake it’s groove thang for lonely nerds all day long. That’s all it does. It will shake as long as it remains plugged into a powered USB port. Looks like you have your choice of various undies styles as well.

Four different versions to be exact. If you can’t get to the beach and see the real deal, I suppose it will have to do. Personally though, I would suggest you focus on getting a real live girl so you can see this.

Octopus USB Hub

Octopus USB HubChances are you’ve got more USB toys than you have ports. So when it comes to a USB hub, an octopus makes perfect sense. Octopi have eight arms. That’s an awesome amount of gadgets to be able to plug into it. But wait.

This is no Octopus. It only has four arms, giving you four USB ports, not eight. What gives? This is only half an octopus. More of a quadropus really. With googly eyes. At least the tentacles are long.

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on July 2nd, 2009


We first showed you the Beanzawave USB microwave last month. Well here’s the first hands on video of the Beanzawave in action. Sure,when it comes to power and size it’s lacking, but it makes up for those cons with portability and convenience.

It’s powered by onboard batteries that can be charged via USB or an AC adapter. Of course, it’s designed to work with Heinz’s very own single-serving cans of Chef Boyardee foods. We still don’t have any details on pricing or availability.

Elecom Wall Socket USB HubThere are all kinds of crazy USB hubs, but sometimes it’s best to keep it simple and classic in design. Elecom has done just that with its new U2H-TC410B “wall socket” USB hub.

No, it doesn’t actually plug into your power outlet, but it’s designed to be mounted on your wall or on the side of your desk, becoming a kind of wall socket for your USB peripherals. It’s a pretty standard four-port USB 2.0 hub aside from the design.

I see your Artillery USB Hub and raise you an Airplane USB Hub

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2009

I see your Artillery USB Hub and raise you an Airplane USB HubYou thought that you were the victor in the USB wars, didn’t you? With your Artillery USB hub guarding your base camp… You did not count on an even bigger and more powerful USB 1.1 hub. While you were sucking on your stogies in celebration and kissing pictures of your gal back home, the Airplane USB Hub just layed waste to your whole platoon.

It did so due to awesomely impressive specs like these: Airplane design with 5 seconds clear flying-off sound effect, 4 ports, Fan On/Off button, Soft plastic blades for safety, Very strong wind, Blue LED indicator light at the tail, USB 1.1, Size: 158*140*45mm, Weight: 105g.

Artillery USB Hub

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2009

Artillery USB HubThis cannon-shaped USB hub features three ports that trigger an artillery sound effect when a device is plugged in. Pretty cool, but don’t think you are going to win any USB wars with this one. It only supports USB 1.1.

Neat as it is, despite being USB 1.1, it needs to actually fire something and not just look like an old cannon. What would be cool is if it actually held a small USB drive that it could jettison out when you are done with it. If the kids are still saying FAIL this week, I suggest you say it to the Artillery USB Hub. It’s certainly not full of win.

Dane-Elec sells games on USB flash drives

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2009

Dane-Elec sells games on USB flash drivesDane-Elec has decided to sell games in a new way. One that has nothing to do with the optical disc format but instead is in the form of a USB flash drive. As you might expect, these are bargain bin titles.

Dane-Elec will make available older titles like Rainbow Six Lockdown , Blazing Angels and Fashion Designer which are going for just $19.99 or $24.99, depending on the game. I guess the upside is that after the installation, and after you’ve beaten the game in a few hours, you can use them as standard USB flash drives.

Super Mario World USB drives

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 16th, 2009

Super Mario World USB drivesHow we wish that Nintendo would get it together and offer these 4GB drives officially. Sigh. But at least they’re available on Etsy for $55 each. The Mario Brick comes in six feet varieties and costs only $19. There’s also Koopa, Goomba and the mushroom.

Sure, it’s a hefty price, but where else are you going to get one? Plus they are hand crafted with love and star-power, in a small cottage within the Mushroom Kingdom.

Buffalo 4-Port USB Hub/Power strip

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 15th, 2009

Buffalo 4-Port USB Hub/Power stripAt first glance, this 4 port USB hub from Buffalo looks ordinary. But it isn’t. Notice how it resembles the powerstrips that you already use in your outlets. We find it cute in a geeky way. Yes, those are individual switches for each port that enables easy selection of which devices you want to use or not use.

It even features an LED light indication for when it’s dark. The hub itself will come in four colors, with an AC adapter and four USB cables that measure 1.5m in length.
