USB gadgets gone mad....

Post by neil » Wed Dec 17, 2008 8:28 pm

Got an email off a company I've bought from in the past and found the following:

Product Information
Here's a handy gadget that competitive typists everywhere will love - the USB Speedometer.
More than just a novelty, this Speedometer plugs into a USB port and can keep track of both typing speed and total word counts.
Great for anyone who wants to improve their touch-typing speed skills, it's also a must-have for writers or journalists who need to keep track of their word-count or train themselves to be speedy and efficient at the keyboard.



Features:
* Words-per-minute counter
* Total word-count counter
* Keystroke-per-minute counter

Have to admit I was tempted !

Also available:

USB Exercise mouse
Image
USB Boxer
Image
USB Shredder !

I've seen the USB cup warmer - and met someone who'd bought one - apparently it was so effective that if you left it plugged in it heated the cup up so much you couldn't pick it up !!

The world's gone mad
