Wild! Wacky! Weird!

Ever found yourself struggling to find the right gift for a friend, partner, kid, colleague, etc? All the obvious choices for a gift are boring and expected, but nothing new comes to mind... Not only is it inconvenient, but it's frustrating. Lately I have been searching for new gift ideas, and not forgetting this blog is about gadgets, I happened across a great site that has every gift you will ever need. At, you will never run short of new and exciting gift ideas for just about anyone.

Wild! In the Sun
Heard of the Solar Powered Laptop Case? I didn’t think so. Looking at the picture, you can tell the designers threw fashion out the window... but the technology speaks for itself. It uses high efficiency solar cells to generate maximum power in the limited space available. It includes a battery pack custom designed to efficiently store and convert the electricity generated. This case holds up to a 17" laptop and is the first that is powerful enough to charge a laptop. Comes in orange, green, charcoal, and silver. The price is even wilder, but for the sake of technology and cool gadgets, this solar powered case made it to my impressive list.

Wacky! Little Human
Hubman USB port. What is there to say? Take one look and know it is meant for you! Cute, small, helps organize your life and did I mention it was cute? Smiley faces never hurt anybody, though it could get annoying after awhile. Anyway, as you can imagine, the ‘hands’ and ‘feet’ are USB ports. And it’s white, for all you Mac lovers out there! This gift is good if you want to send a smile without wrinkling your face.

Weird! Ducky
Don’t get confused when you see a rubber ducky in the mouse, it is not your bathtime… it's just something that someone somewhere thinks is cute (and I wouldn’t take it in the tub with you, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t float). Last time I checked, the rubber ducky belonged in the bathroom. Anyway, they say there is real liquid inside! Aside from the unique look, the Rubber Ducky Optical Computer Mouse (say that 5 times fast), functions like a normal mouse with the works (scroll button, right- and left-click, USB plug). Actually, I could see where this mouse may come in handy… I have a friend who loves ducks. Well see, it’s not totally useless! truly redefined uncommon.
