Japan Making Electronics Fun

One of the local Macromedians has a USB Flash disk. I know what you are thinking, “so what, we all do”. True, but does yours look like a duck? I am serious, this Flash disk is in the shape of a small rubber duck, the kind a kid would play with in the bathtub. But this rubber duck has a little USB plug sticking out of it, and when inserted into your computer the duck glows blue. That is it, just a Flash disk. But in the shape of a duck? I can’t even imagine why anyone would create such a device, but honestly, it is so silly that I just have to get one.

    Heh, this brings to mind the "rubber ducking" technique from The Pragmatic Programmer 🙂
