Adidas USB flash drive looks like luggage

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2010

Flash drives all the look the same for the most part. But Adidas has their own USB flash drive, which stands out from the crowd. These drives are used for marketing purposes and sports a unique design that resembles a miniature roll-on suitcase with three stripes.

It’s different and you have to love the way the USB connector hides away when not needed. If they made this one available to everyone, they would do well.

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on April 15th, 2010

Right now this is still a rumor, so take it with the usual grain of salt. There is speculation that the iPad Camera Connection Kit might allow USB audio output, since it’s offering you a USB port. If true, it’s an interesting development.

It might even allow you to connect some useful devices to the iPad. It also might allow you to charge your USB devices from it, like your Mifi. Then again, we are just dreaming right now. We’ll see what happens.

Looking for something new in a microwave? Well, these combi-ovens are pretty popular in Europe, because they are a bit more versatile and they look good. They offer up a USB port and menu-creating software.

The kitchen will never be the same now that you can program the mode and time of cooking for your favorite meals and store them on a USB drive. But what we really want to know is, will it charge our gadgets or not?

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on April 13th, 2010

You certainly have your choice of USB flash drives, but this Iron Man flash drive is pretty damn awesome. They don’t get much cooler or geekier than this. It has some nice detail.

For $39.50 you get a 4GB capacity. Sadly that’s all you get. No multimedia special clips. No secret message from Tony Stark. Just the drive. But that’s cool, this drive looks great and we are just waiting for the movie.

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on April 12th, 2010

Looking for something a bit different in a mouse? This new mouse from Brando might be up your alley. It looks like a lame Sci-Fi gun in a low budget movie, but who knows, it might just help your wrist.

All the action takes place in the air, not on the desk. And it’s all pew pew pew as you navigate the internet while looking incredibly silly. I mean, they could have at least made it wireless.

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2010

Imagine if the old SNES controllers had accelerometers inside. You won’t have to imagine any more. Someone with some extra time on the hands has done it. This controller has been programmed to play Portal. You can watch a video of the controller in action here.

Obviously it can be programmed to play other modern games as well. Pretty neat. I can think of a few PS3 games I’d like to try it with.

It’s sad, but all of those neat uSb toys that you bought are now obsolete. That’s because the USB-IF has announced the completion of SuperSpeed USB (3.0) compliance on 50 devices. That’s nothing compared to the amount of USB 2.0-compliant devices available, but it’s a start.

The new products range from PCIe adapters to ExpressCard adapters. The list includes things like HP’s Envy 15 laptop and WD’s My Book 3.0 external hard drive, but most are adapters right now. 45 of them are listed on the site and five are unidentified.

Infinite USB Connector concept

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2010

Here’s a simple but very cool USB plug concept design. Why no one has thought of it before, we don’t know. It should certainly solve the problem of running out of USB ports on laptops. This USB connector has both the male and female connectors, so you can daisy-chain several together and live happily ever after in USB toy land.

Of course, they would get unstable very quick once several are plugged in. The color coding is a nice feature though. This could be very useful.

Buffalo Lipstick USB flash drive

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2010

When a company wants to appeal to women, they go straight to mimicking makeup colors and design. In this case they have dressed up a flash drive to look like lipstick. Males will be adverse to this one like a Vampire faced with a cross.

But women might dig it. So Buffalo is targeting females with the RUF2-JWS series of flash drives. It comes in 4GB or 8GB sizes and in four different colors, including Rich Brown, Glossy Pink, Royal White, and Shiny Coral.
