The USB is one of the greatest inventions ever, it gives us so many possibilities to peripherals. The problem with that is that the USB ports are never enough, you will need space for all of your thumbdrive, external harddisk, printer, scanner, webcam and mouse. So somebody came out with the multi-jack USB station kind of spider-looking dock. The problem with these docks is that you cannot simply pull the USB plugs when you want to, the whole bunch of lines will follow. Thanko Japan has come out with this Gold looking and Gold-weighing 2KG USB hub with 8 jacks, this will sit securely on your desk and create some sensation across the office. Now you can look rich and unplug your printer single-handedly because you know the block will stay there, and it doesn't cause you an arm or a leg (50USD).

The problem of wearing a mask is that it's always so hard to breath through it. You might not understand unless your job requires you to wear one (healthcare providers anyone?). If you happen to live in Japan, it is a common practice that whoever gets sick is obliged to wear a mask, so that others won't get infected. So Thanko came out with this idea of having a USB-powered mask to put over your regular surgical mask, the fans will then pump in fresh air for your enjoyment. So you will still be able to work in front of your computer, rush through projects while being considerate and not contracting anyone with your disease.

Ever since the invention of internet, we just can't help getting lazier and lazier, and the price of being lazy in winter would be feeling cold. Wouldn't it be great if we can work with your computer at the optimum environment? Optimum to the Japanese will also mean optimum temperature. So Thanko is selling various products that are all powered by your USB to keep you warm. USB powered sleepers that can keep your feet warm, a warm pillow for you to sit on, heating gloves to keep your typing fingers functional, a warm mousepad for you to shove your hand in there, navigate and feeling all warm and fuzzy at the same time; the company even developed warm eye masks to reduce the puffiness around those over-worked eyes. All these products are sold between 10USD to 40USD each, now how 'bout a USB powered central heating system?
