Feather or spectacles: New USB sticks double as bookmarks


For some strange reason, USB seems to stimulate the imagination of crap gadget makers. This is especially true for Japanese companies, i.e Thanko, or (in this case) Solid Alliance. The Tokyo-based company, which just last week brought us the USB Ninja Star, now sells two weird USB sticks [JP] doubling as bookmarks (for real books).


Next to a USB feather, you can also get a USB stick/bookmark that’s shaped like a pair of glasses. Both sticks have 2GB of memory.


You can get these gadgets here for $42.64 each (plus shipping) if you live outside Japan. But why should anyone want this?
