Light Bulb USB Flash Drive from Green House

Green House Light Bulb USB Flash Drive

It comes with 2GB storage capacity and is available in 3 light colors : Green, Orange and Blue and it blinks when writing or reading. The flash drive works under Windows 7, Vista, Xp and Mac OS X and can reach a maximum transfer rate speed of 480 Mbps.

Dust Vacuum Mouse Keeps Your Desk Clean

USB-Dust-Vacuum-Mouse

Play video games or clean your desk, what will it be? Now, thanks to the USB Dust Vacuum Mouse, you can do both at the same time.

A simple 800 dpi optical mouse, with a cleverly built-in miniature vacuum cleaner, the Dust Vacuum Mouse won’t blow your mind when it comes to performance, but it’s perfect for cleanliness freaks who can’t stand dust on their desks.

The 100 grams-heavy USB mouse features a dust-bin at its back end, but it’s very small and you have to empty it pretty often, unless you want it to burst in your face. It’s not the world’s greatest gaming mouse, but I think it’s worth $12.69.

”Lockface” USB drive with Facial-Recognition

The Lockface USB flash drive has been created by Futen, a Japanese company, and features something new and different than other USB drives. It takes several pictures of the user’s face in order to verify if it’s the same user who logs in.

The facial recognition is useful for someone who possesses valuable information or for someone who wants to keep his personal things at safe. The Lockface USB has a 98% correct recognition, but if you don’t like this facial-recognition thing you can also use a passcode for it.

For the moment, you can find it just on the Japanese market for $110.

Fur-Covered USB drive

Magnhild Disington, a Danish textile designer, said that USB sticks are things that we carry with us most of the time and she decides to cover them with fur because they are ” neutral in appearance and lack emotional appeal”. So she uses pieces of leftover fur, providing ”unique character and sensory experience which create emotional value” .
