Weirdest Computer Accessories that I don't have...

By UncleRob ·
It's thursday today (4/13/06) and since tomorrow's a day off (Good Friday), I thought it might be fun to share some opinions & links to the weirdest computer accessories that you don't have yet & why you don't have them.

I'll start it off with this one,
USB powered desktop tanning center,
here's the link:

I don't have one of these because I burn like a sinner - I'm fair skinned and a few hours in the hot sun changes my skin color from ghost white to dark red/purple. I can only imagine what my face would look like after a day of having this usb powered desktop tanning center running at my desktop.

What's the weirdest computer accessory that you don't have (& why)?

You're right - wake up soap

by Dr Dij In reply to Thinkgeek has them all

I saw their catalog

soap with caffeine in it, absorbs thru your skin, ideal for the lazy geek who finds it too much trouble to make a cup of coffee. (but then why would they take the trouble to shower?)

Apparently I have an unwanted pc accessory - my pens keep disappearing from my desk, so I'm thinking there must be a mini-singularity / black hole PC accessory hidden somehow by my jet black file cabinet, tuned to suck in pens. Possibly invented by Deadly Earnest (see his discussion on gravity wave lasers)

As for particularily lazy geeks showering ... I am guessing their wives force them each week ..

those lazy geeks don't get out enough to meet a woman to get married to! ]:)
their only "action" is the palm sisters.
[most likely the only action they have ever had ]

palm sisters?

by NI70 In reply to wives?

I thought it was Rosey Palm and Mary Fist?

BTW, this geek was once upon a time married, but she couldn't handle me not making enough when I first started out in the IT field. When she wanted a divorce, I would not fill out or sign the papers because I didn't want her know how much I make:) (started out 28K and now 60K!) Take that to the bank now!

Not sure how comfortable it would be, looks big & heavy...

by UncleRob In reply to Thinkgeek has them all

walking around all day long, wouldn't be used to walking around with something so big & heavy hanging from that general area...

....hmmmm... methinks I've said too much

- I think I'll stick to that coffee cup warmer/usb hub discussion

USB easy-bake

by ITgirli In reply to Weirdest Computer Accesso ...

That's the one I want and don't have. Thinkgeek also has USB george forman grill. One of these days I'm going to get them both and I'll never need to go into the kitchen ever again. Now if they could only make a USB toilet......

The USB rockets [ http://news.com.com/2061-10801_3-5980850.html?part=rss&tag=5980850&subj=news ] I think they might be out of stock, (I wonder why) but not sure. I haven't found little nuke warheads for them yet either.

usb powered beverage cooler, who knew?

by UncleRob In reply to Weirdest Computer Accesso ...

http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/electronic/7f5a/

Description: USB Beverage Chiller is the only way to keep a drink cold while you're at your computer - and it looks cool on any desktop. With the USB Beverage Chiller at your side, you can keep your beverage chilled and stay at your computer longer. This translates into greater work or gaming productivity - and what geek doesn't enjoy increasing their efficiency.
Just seconds after plugging the chiller into a USB port (no external outlet needed), the coldplate chills to 45 degrees Fahrenheit, the perfect temperature for helping keep your beverage cool.

Connection via USB
Coldplate chills to 45˚F
Helps keeps your beverage cool
USB cable length: 5 feet
Dimensions: 5.25" x 3.25" x 1.4"
Bottle of Bawls not included

* I've never heard of the brand "Bawls" before, I don't think we can get that here in Canada, but I'm sure other beverage can or bottle drinks would work.

Reason why I don't have it:
.... because I just found out about it today, could be a possible purchase though
