More Cool Inventions! Top USB gadgets and Cool USB Toys

USB has always fascinated me — it’s amazing how you can transfer both data and power through USB. And many companies have leveraged on that to create some really cool inventions! Just check these USB gadgets that I found..some of them are positively zany – like the USB Chameleon, while some can really promise serious fun, like the USB Laser Guided Missile Launcher!

I think they make fantastic gifts too, because anyone can get a kick out of them. Especially since computers are so common too.
