The USB Ghost Radar

by Liam

I have to say this is one of the more odd gadgets I’ve come across. The USB Ghost Radar supposedly does just as it says, detect ghosts. This USB gadget might be perfect for any of the psychics out there. The device itself seems to be quite complex, with an array of sensors and alert lights, as well as a very complex algorithm for detecting the paranormal which analyses the …

USB RC Car Simulator

by Al

USB RC Controller

I’m not sure if this is cool or not. It’s a computer simulation of a remote control car with a realistic high end controller. The Controller connects via USB and is used to control the remote control car on screen. It does look cool but I’m still left with the feeling that this type of simulation is overkill, I can understand racing games and flight sims as Mr Joe Public …

Webcam with Night Vision

CD carousel with USB support

This CD carousel is a real find for me. Being a music as well as a gadget lover, I have about 600 audio CDs. As you can imagine, organising them is somewhat problematic.

USB memory armband

by Paz

USB memory armband

I’m currently compiling the definitive list of pointless USB gadgets, but this one won’t make it because it could actually be useful! It’s a 1 GB USB memory stick that can be worn on the wrist as an armband. OK it’s looks a little functional; some might say uncool even, but it does have practical uses, especially if like me you’re sometimes doing lots of presentations and keep losing USB sticks in different offices.
