The coolness in you... a USB lava lamp
Are you in need to relax but can’t really lift your doubles off your chair because of a deadline coming up. Sure you can resort to soothing screen savers, but what if you just need to punch those keyboards. Screen savers just couldn’t handle that.
Try the USB lava lamp!
Not the gooooey lamp you are accustomed to, it’s not even colored to soothe, but in a way, it somehow just lets your mind escape even for a few seconds to stare at the slow moving glitter flakes. If the colorless light is straining your eyes, you could always wrap it in colored plastic anyway. Nonetheless I think this may yet to the job of de-cluttering your mind even for a short while.
It’s sold for about $4.99 at www.thinkgeek.com by the way. By May 2008 they’re promising a blue hint or a purple one. No batteries required because this is a straight up USB powered device. IF you have USB ports to spare and you’re connected to the outlet most of the time, you should check this out.
Will it clutter your workspace? No, it consumes less than the lot a mouse needs. stands about 6 inches with a cable stretching to just about 4 feet. That means you can share the ambiance!
