We don't know about you, but a peripheral has to earn its space on our over-crowded desks by offering as many useful features as possible.

Our somewhat occasional use of the humble paper-clip then would not necessarily mean this new device is a shoe-in, but some more paper-clip-happy users might find it of interest.

As well as the paper-clip holder section (that Gadget4All usefully comments could also be used to hold other "small stuffs"), this USB-powered peripheral boasts four ports.

It's on sale now from the above-named gadget purveyor for $12.
