Puppy-shaped speakers prove not all USB dogs have to hump or crunch to be cute


Humping or crunching USB dogs are out. The newest fad (at least in Japan) is owning puppy-shaped and USB-powered speakers [JP] for your computer. They are brought to you by Japan Trust Technology (what a name), a Tokyo-based Thanko competitor that has just released a USB-powered mini Zen garden.


Buyers get two dogs, a Spaniel and a Dalmatian with 2W of power. Plug a USB cable in their butts and they are ready to go. Buyers can adjust the volume through a mini guitar-shaped controller (pictured above).


The set price for the speakers in Japan is $40. Ask the Japan Trend Shop, Gizmine, Geek Stuff 4 U or Rinkya if you live outside Nippon and really want to own more tasteless USB gadgets.
