                                                  Here's a bizarre product on sale in Japan along with a load of other odd USB peripherals for your PC. Why anyone would need a toothbrush that only works when plugged into their computer is beyond me, I mean, how many people would actually keep their PC in the bathroom ?

Also up for grabs is the impossible-to-miss USB Coffee Cup Warmer and USB electric blanket.

I agree Celtic, as the microwave seems just a little bit too far to walk to get a few
more degrees into my warm coffee...

                                                  those silly japanese                                                  

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

                                                  Maybe they're thinking ahead for when you can start wearing your computer around. Then you can bruch your teeth on the go too, now if they could only invent the USB powered Soda Pop Dispenser.

Wabi-sabi is the quintessential Japanese aesthetic.

It is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.
It is a beauty of things modest and humble.
It is a beauty of things unconventional.

                                                  Well. in Japan the living quarters are a bit cramped, so maybe to them it makes perfect sense.  Of course, this is a country with a theme park devoted to toilets.                                                    

Nothing to see here.

                                                  we do?

i really think this forum needs someone Japanese.   their culture is so strange, it could actually use like 3 people posting constantly about it, and i would still be baffled.

                                                  No the toilet theme park is in Japan.  I'm sorry I should have been clearer on that.  It's like a giant bowl the size of a house, and if I remember correctly it's a major tourist attraction.  Just wait until a kid gets flushed accedentally....  laugh.gif  laugh.gif

                                                  Its probably used for all the gamers that never leave their computer like the guy who died in an internet cafe after  being on for 85 hrs straight. That was sad sad.gif
What's even worse is that I know some of these people who are always on games and that is all they do even at work.
