I want to know if anyone owns a USB gadget (e.g. Fan, fridge, travel mug, light)
tell us about how much you like it, and a picture if you can.

I own some USB gadgets. Ive even made my own.
Heres Mine.

Disregarding devices with actual practical use, I've got a little guy named Tengu. When there's music playing he moves his mouth and "sings". If you blow on him his face changes to something else. He looks like this:

I have a flash drive, a lamp that's shaped like a lava lamp, but has bubbles in it, with changing lights...I have a thingie that has 4 USB ports on it...A laptop mouse if that counts...Oh and a NES controller so I can play ROM's with it on my computer

Does this count? It's a boarduino hooked up to an LED display over USB. Built it over the summer, programmed it myself, mostly sits in my desk drawer doing nothing, unless I take it out to show it off :D

The coolest USB gadget that I ever saw was a USB Flash drive that changed size! If it was empty (had little sorted on it) then it was small, but as you added stuff to it grew and grew. :D
Now that's just cool!

For USB I have:

-External 2.5" hard drive (80gb)
-External 3.5" hard drive (200gb)
-Empty external 3.5" enclosure
-About 32GB worth of thumbdrives kicking around
-USB Bluetooth dongle
-Multiple USB hubs (some powered, some not)
-Webcam (old digital camera), new digital camera, iPod(s)
-Mouse, keyboard, controller

I also have serial (yes, serial) winamp controller I built years ago. I have it hooked up near the couch (in the living room) so I can change songs from there.

I also have a project back at my parents' house that was a USB based 16x2 character LCD winamp readout, based on a PIC chip. It sort of works :/

Does this count? It's a boarduino hooked up to an LED display over USB. Built it over the summer, programmed it myself, mostly sits in my desk drawer doing nothing, unless I take it out to show it off :D

I've been meaning to order one of those - they look awesome!

Umm...

Mouse
Keyboard
External hard drive (160GB)
Sony MicroVault Click 4GB flash drive
(old!) Verbatim 1GB flash drive
PSP charging cable (OK, it's for a car charger and doesn't *really* work with the PC since there isn't enough power)
HSDPA modem
Card reader

I need a hub, yes... I might as well list my other crap that's coming out the back of this thing...

10A power cable
2x Gigabit ethernet cables
Monitor
2x audio plugs (same jack, splitter)

And.. that's it really.

Also, I should explain, USB can only deliver 500mA at the best of times, fridges, cup warmers/coolers, chargers, speakers, etc, that are traditionally fairly high drain devices probably won't work too well, but they will work. Just make sure the +5V rail in your power supply has plenty of amps.

I would like to make a couple of nifty USB things in the future.

Well...lemme see...I have

  • 7-port USB Hub (or I'd never have all this other junk)
  • laptop cooling fan/pad thingy (has 2 fans and sits under the laptop)
  • wireless mouse (also re-charges through the USB)
  • headset (although right now only the mic is working...need a new one)
  • 120g external harddrive (connect to PC and power are both through USB)
  • webcam (okay, it's really my old Hitachi video camera...works great with an a/v to USB connector thingy that I bought from some guy in China on E-Bay)
  • various mini USB cables that connect and/or re-charge my Blackberry and my mp3 player

I need to get a card reader, but I need a new headset even more!
