So you’ve just got your brand-spanking new computer. It looks amazing and runs faster than Frankel. But a horse is nothing without a jockey, shiny new coat, horse muffs or saddle. Just as a mobile phone is nothing without its cover, a computer isn’t worth a byte without some funky gadgets to go with it.
Touchscreen technology is wonderful, but while you are out and about in the Arctic, the last thing you want to do is take your gloves off so you can jab your frozen stump of a finger at your computer screen. So wear Smart Gloves instead and lovingly caress your screen in the wonderful, freezing outdoors. Conductive material is cunningly sewn into the tips of the index finger and thumbs, so your digits don’t need to stay idle when you are out and about in a blizzard. Imagine, you can use your iPad in a snowstorm without losing your fingertips. Great stuff! They are so endearingly soft you’ll never want to take them off. Good thing you can wash them easily too. Round of applause please.
Computer mice are almost as superfluous as the real thing, so it’s hard to find one that really stands out. Here’s one that is leaps and bounds above the competition. You will really feel like the big cheese when you start to scanning with this mouse. It works by taking images of objects when you manually drag the mouse over segments of documents for example. The image can then immediately be sent across to your screen. There is also OCR technology to handily convert your scanned text in case you wish to edit the content.
Key to the kingdom
You will feel like royalty with the Logitech diNovo Edge Keyboard. It is surely one of the swankiest keyboards out there. Made from a translucent piece of black Plexiglas it literally gleams with style. It’s not just a pretty boy either. Features include a TouchDis navigation which allows you to manipulate the cursor simply by moving a finger over the disc. You can also change the volume by using a touch-sensitive slider. The PerfectStroke™ key system protects your fingers as well, and works silently no matter how hard you bang the keys. It is rechargeable and gives you two months of use for every two hours of charge.
USB gadgets are coming out fast and thick, but you’ll be hard pressed to find one as cool as this USB-powered fridge. That’s right, a fridge powered by your computer. So maybe it’s not the most practical piece of kit you’ll ever find. That doesn’t matter because when you need an ice cold beer you won’t have to get up and go to the fridge to get it. Let the others in the office laugh. You know that secretly they envy you more than Elton John envies Madonna.
You will never feel like a fish out of water with this USB-powered fish tank. In fact, you will feel positively golden as you watch your fish lazily swan around safe in the knowledge that your quad-core i7 processor is powering their home. Your fish’s confidence would be justified as the tank has a calendar function, and a digital display screen showing time, date and temperature. There is also a musical alarm function to remind your brain to function enough to feed them. That’s about all you need to do, as it can automatically turn on the faucet and filter the aquarium’s water.
