The computer is a wonderful thing; it’s amazing how much fun they can fit into one computer – sadly when you’re in the office most of those fun features are off-limits (namely solitaire), as you have to actually do work. That means you might need to enhance your computer’s fun factor in other ways! Luckily many online shops have noted this problem and have begun to provide us with some excellent and unnecessary useful gadgets that either plug into your USB drive or make your keyboard and mouse even more exciting than they already are.
Here are just a few of the excellent computer gadgets that you can splurge your money on:
We love cute computer accessories. No designer ever makes a “cute” computer, so we often have to improvise. This adorable USB Toaster hub is perfect if you need a little extra space for your USB connections, and it’s also highly amusing, with its 4 sweet, toasty companions. If you want to get your mitts on it, it’s from ThinkGeek.
Glow-in-the-Dark Real Spider Mouse
Need to deter would-be Facebook hackers and protect secret files? Well this mouse features a real creepy spider body, lit up for all to see by an eerie violet light. We all know most people wouldn’t like to put their hands anywhere near a spider, but luckily this one is encased in plastic, so it won’t get out… we hope. It’s from Luvocracy.
Some people like the old, some people like the new, but you can have the best of both worlds with the USB Turntable. It’s an accessory that lets you convert all your vinyl disks into digital format, so that old Elvis Presley original will live another day. It’s from Firebox.
Always wanted a pet but you’re not really responsible enough / your boss wouldn’t let it into the office? Well don’t worry; because now you can have this mini, fully working fish tank that provides everything you might need in the office. Yep, not only does this little gadget have a clock, a calendar, a temperature sensor, a phone holder AND a penholder, but it also lets you keep a few fishy friends. Trust us, they’re great office companions. This is available at ThinkGeek.
Light Show Fountain Speakers
Love music? Love lights? Combine the best of both worlds with these futuristic little speakers, they’re a brilliant way of visualising your favourite tunes and adding a little sci-fi cool to your desk. They’re filled with water, that pulses along to the beat of your music, creating some pretty funky waves. They’re available at Think Geek.
Cookie cup warmer
You know the drill, you just make a delicious piping hot cup of tea, then the client from hell calls, and talks until the cows come home. When you eventually manage to get off the phone, all that’s left to greet you its lukewarm brown water – worry no more with this USB cokie cup warmer though! Hot tea can once again be enjoyed at all times. It’s available from I Want One Of Those.
