Foolish USB-powered Thingies

Thu Apr 21, 2005 11:02 pm

I'm gettinga USB model aircraft with a spinning propeller, whereas a colleague has a mini USB-powered vacuum cleaner.

Any other stupid USB peripherals you know of ?

i have two USB 80GB hard disks, one containing my life and everything about it, and the second a full backup updated weekly.

when those two are plugged, and i am downloading pictures from my USB camera, while at the same time refreshing my imate USB pocket PC, things get ...complicated. And slow.

Hey do you have a link to where we could look at that usb airplane. That sounds kind of interesting. Or a link to a website that sells that kind of stuff.

My USB powered laptop should be arriving any day now  crossfingers 
I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.

I got a USB powered mini coffee maker as a present when I visited the computer trade fair CEBIT last time.

I saw something a while ago that would probably be useful for many A.net members.. A virtual sex machine that plugged into a serial port. That was a long time ago so they almost certainly have a USB version by now.

I would post a link but due to content certainly on the site I would probably get suspended.
