FlashHarp: Harmonica meets USB flash driveThe Harmonica is a tough instrument to master. So it makes sense to combine it with instructions to learn how to play the harmonica right on the harmonica itself. That’s right, this harmonica is also a USB flash drive.

On the flash drive side there’s a 10 minute quicktime video that will teach you everything you need to know. It’s available in 2GB and 4GB varieties. You’ll be working that instrument like a pro in no time. Who’s buying one?

The microscope can magnify the object from 10x to 200x and comes equipped with 8 white LEDs around the lens for extra illumination. Some other features include a built-in Li-ion battery that can be recharged in the cradle.

Porsche USB flash driveMany of us would love to own a Porsche, but not all of us can afford one. The next best thing may be this Porsche flash drive. At least it’s something to flash around so you can pretend you own one.

The drive offers 2GB of storage, which should be plenty of space for Porsche pictures and other important data. Of course it features the brand logo embedded on it. It will cost you $49 and leave you feeling completely unsatisfied because you are still no closer to the actual car.

Fire Dragon USB game controllerAdd this one to the growing line of crappy novelty controllers. It’s a fire dragon for all of you D and D type dudes and dudettes who like to prance around in Elven armor and decorate your place with pewter trinkets.

It’s laid out like an XBox controller and you gotta love that “ergonomic design”. Apparently the tail is removable, so you can get all stabby with the guy playing next to you.

Warrior USB JoypadYour current game controller is probably a little boring. Why not spice things up with this Warrior USB Joypad? Channel your inner warrior and use his power to conquer your foes, while trying to forget how uncomfortable this thing is.

The warriors eyes light up and it will vibrate with compatible games. It’s compatible with USB, PlayStation PS3 and PS2. To me, this thing looks like a bat with a Samurai head. I think they may have created a new superhero.

Uzi USB Flash Drive

Uzi USB Flash DriveWe’ve seen a Ninja weapon in USB drive form, so why not an Uzi. Of course the drive is in the clip. Where else are you going to load and reload data from?

This bad boy comes from The Get Busy Committee, a rap group who stuck their upcoming album “Uzi Does It” on uzi-shaped flash drives. Pretty clever marketing. I’ve never heard of them and it has me talking about them. This kind of music marketing gives a new spin to the term “Number one with a bullet”.

Western Digital USB drives now display infoIt took them awhile, but drive makers are finally getting hip to the fact that we would like to see how much disk space is left without having to plug it in. About time. Western Digital’s My Book Elite and My Book Studio drives now feature labels on the outside displaying that always-on info.

That means even when it isn’t plugged in, you’ll get a 12 character label, and a second line that displays how much space is left on the disc. In both gigabytes and a graph no less. Simple solution huh? The USB 2TB My Book Elite is $280, and the 2TB My Book Studio with FireWire 800 and USB connectivity is $300.

Hello Kitty Mimobots are an army of darkness headed for USB portsThese Hello Kitty Mimobots look absolutely terrifying when there are several together. They travel in packs you see, seeking out your USB port so that they can feed on your files like cute feline vampires in overalls. They are evil and I’m scared. These are in celebration of Hello Kitty’s 35th anniversary.

Sanrio and mimoco got together one stormy night and brainstormed over what kind of creepy thing they could do next. This is their Frankenstein creation. A 2 GB flash drive sells for $25, while the 4 GB version sells for $35 and there’s an 8 GB version that sells for $50.

LaCie's Sound2 USB Speakers look goodLaCie’s Sound2 USB speakers almost look too good. What are they hiding? Are they overcompensating for something? Hmmm. You don’t usually think LaCie when you think audio, but these look so nice we are willing to believe that they must sound good too. We hope.

The Sound2 laptop speakers are USB-powered, with the audio coming from Cabasse, a French audio company. They were designed by Neil Poulton and will cost you $100. Like Fox Mulder, we “want to believe” that these beauties sound good at that price.
