10. George Foreman USB iGrill
Did you know that the former boxer and twice Heavyweight Champion of the world George Foreman were into USB devices? Well, neither did I. But for $99.99 you can get your own USB powered grill standing next to your computer. For whom is this product meant to be? The boxing interested chef who also is a computer geek? I mean why make an item like this USB powered? To get some extra press by appearing on lists like this one? You tell me. Weird is the word.

9. USB Air darts
This product was on and off the list a couple of times, but I finally decided to let it be within the final 10. This is actually a quite cool product, and the basic idea is that you aim the darts with your mouse and fire them off with the mouse button. They are currently sold out at Marks & Spencer though…

8. The USB ghost radar
I wish I could have been in that brainstorming meeting where the idea of producing an USB ghost radar came up. Ok - someone can always come up with a really crazy idea - but it’s not that often when a quite unusual idea like the USB ghost radar actually hits the production line…I mean, is it often you want to scan the area around your computer for paranormal activity? Hehe.

5. USB self destruction button
Why on earth would you want a USB powered self destruction button? You can read that it can be used to block access to certain applications. Ok. That’s really neat. This one is so weird that I don’t even know how it’s supposed to be used. It’s definitely worth a place on this list. Update! I’ve got a few mails saying that that this might not be a USB device after all. Stay tuned.

4. USB Flower pot speaker
Take a look at this nice little flower. Wouldn’t it be funny to have one of those plugged into your computer? It’s actually a speaker, and it comes from the same manufacturer as the USB heating gloves and the heated slippers…The guys over at Thanko.jp sure has an eye for usable USB devices. Hehe. It’s so totally crazy that it becomes awesome.

3. USB heating gloves
Do you often feel the need to heat up your hands while sitting in front of your computer? Wow. This is a VERY useful product. Hehe. Especially since the USB cable is 1.5 metres long. I guess there can be a lot of Kodak golden moments when people forget they are wearing their ‘heating gloves’ and gets up in a hurry to answer the phone or open the door - and crashing their laptop to the ground. Don’t forget to wear these gloves together with the heated slippers…

2. The eye massager
Ok, let’s read that again, but take a look at the picture to the right first. Eye massager. Is that red hand supposed to be an eye massager? I mean, doesn’t it look like something that might get you blind? I don’t want this one anywhere near my eyes. Phew. “Hey dude, come over here - I’m gonna massage your eyes with THIS!”
