USB Basketball Dunk Game

USB Basketball Dunk

Clearly, computer and laptop users are bored. They are bored, and they need something to play with. That is why Perpetual Kid has made the USB Basketball Dunk, a game taken from arcades and amusement parks and brought directly to the user, in miniaturized form.

The USB Basketball Dunk is a tiny little basketball hoop that attaches to the computer via USB cable. It has four little basketballs, and counts your shots with an LED scoreboard.

I can’t help but wonder if you have to install software on your computer for this. Then again, I don’t see any reason why you would, unless you want your computer to track your highest scores. I’m not certain why you would that, unless you think your score would be high.

I’m guessing that this game would probably do nothing to help your game in real-world basketball. I mean, the balls are the wrong size, the weight is all wrong, and its just not the same. You might want to try Nerf Basketball for that.

Still, I’m guessing this game does what it is designed to do, and that is relieve the user of boredom. You should be able to pick this up at the Perpetual Kid site for about $25 USD. I would say it is worth it.
