We are massive gadget geeks here and love USB gadgets. Here we showcase just a few we’ve enjoyed using over the years.
USB Beverage Warmer and Cooler
This cool USB gadget warms or cools a plate for your drink, so you can have a cold coke or hot chocolate…how cool is that!
USB Panic Button
This cool USB panic button can be used with any computer with a USB port. It’s a pretty simple idea but works a treat. When you boss walks past, simply slam the big, red, James Bond style panic button and it puts a document on your PC screen, making you look like you were very busy working. Cool Gadget! I want one of these ASAP!
USB powered Air Refresher
This cool USB gadget produces active oxygen and clears the air with the touch of a button. The Air Refresher is designed to refresh your environment by purifying the air, getting rid of all sorts of particles, smoke, odours, pollen, germs and bacteria and reducing the levels of allergens and electromagnetic radiation. Great if you accidentally slip out a smelly one! Cool!
USB Plasma Ball
Plasma balls are really cool gadgets. The God-like harnessing of the power of electricity is something everyone at Paramountzone attempted at a child, only to get a burst of 240V DC straight through our fingertips, which send us packing in no uncertain terms.
USB Powered Massage Ball Blue
Is you boss stressing you out at work? Then this USB massage ball will help you.
USB Aromatherapy Oil Burner
Scent is one of our most unusual senses because it can affect our moods without our conscious mind realizing it. Olfactory neurons are slower to absorb information and also slower to give it up – which means the when a smell affects you, it lingers.
USB Pregnancy Test
The process starts off like most pregnancy tests. You pee on a stick, specifically the absorbent test strip at one end. But everything’s different after that first step. Remove the cap from the other end of the stick (cleverly provided to keep you from accidentally contaminating the wrong end) to reveal the USB connector. Pop it in your computer. The power from your USB port starts the electrospray ionization process, creating a spectrograph of the various masses for your analysis.
You don’t actually get to see the spectrograph yourself. The mass analysis happens inside the device. And p-Teq’s device only analyzes for specific chemical makeups, so you don’t have to worry about this thing busting you for that “poppy seed bagel” you had yesterday. The mass spectrometry software on the device comes with several sequenced hormones, including hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin), hCG-H (hyperglycosylated hCG – for detection before your first missed period), and LH (luteinizing hormone – for detection of your most fertile days). We like the fact that it does all three. After all, if you’re not pregnant and you wanna be, you need to know if now’s the time to be gettin’ it on.
While most home tests can detect a level of 15-50 mIU/mL of hCG, the enhanced methodology of the USB Pregnancy Test Kit can detect 5-50 mIU/mL, and will show you the exact concentration via its friendly onscreen interface. In addition, the LCD display on the device itself will light up and show you the symbol of a baby, no baby, or multiples and your Estimated Delivery Date based on the concentration of hCG, hCG-H, and LH in your urine. So you can clear your calendar in advance.
After you’re done reviewing your test results, just pop the device out of your computer and change the test strip. The display will remain lit for five minutes and then automatically power off. Note: We recommend the use of horizontal USB drives for this product to prevent accidental moisture transference.
