Strange gadget of the day: USB tape dispenser

If it's possible to incorporate a USB plug into a device, chances are someone will do it.

We've seen USB Snowmen, USB teddy bear flash drives, and USB-powered lights by the dozen.

However, we've never seen a tape dispenser that doubles as a USB hub. The 4-port hub doesn't power the tape dispenser; it merely cuts down on the amount of desk real estate taken up by having separate USB hub and tape dispenser.

These gadgets, which come in a rainbow of colours, will be available soon from Earth Trek in Hong Kong.
