Geeks never seem to get enough sun light so always look a bit pale next to “normal” people, well that could be about to change thanks to the all new USB Desktop Tanning Center (with protective goggles).
Can you imagine a gadget that tells you when someone is bored talking to you? Well MIT labs have come up with just such as device, which uses image recognition technology to read a person’s body language to see if they are paying attention.
I need this gadget. For instance I’ve often tried to explain to my wife the importance of installing the latest hardware drivers for a stable operating system.

Behold the power of USB devices! There are so many wonder stuffs you can do with USB drives, and the most popular usage is of course as a memory (thumb) drive. For some, a 512MB drive is quite good enough to store necessary personal data, but for others 2GB may not be enough. What can you do with such a huge capacity of USB flash drive? Well, what do you do with huge harddisk storage on your PC? The answer is just plain simple.
Anyway, what we have here is not 2GB, not 4GB, rather we have 64GB (Gigabytes) USB Flash drive from the Buslink Drive Pro 2 series.

I think this is one of the wackiest gadgets I’ve ever seen.
If you can’t decide which flavour of drink you prefer then why not buy a bottle and choose the flavour later. Thanks to an invention by Sudbury based company IPIFINI, this may soon be possible thanks to it’s Programmable Liquid Container(TM) technology.
We’ve already discussed the anachronism that is the PC-102 button keyboard and its possible brainwave-activated replacement. Alas that was one gadget that won’t be ready for another 5 to 10 years, but this fantastic-looking, futuristic, touch sensitive keyboard is available now for £130 ($230); appropriately enough from “Amazon.com”.
