I have to confess that when I first clapped eyes on the USB massager, I did think that it was some bizarre bolt-on for use in adult chat rooms. Whilst I'm still not convinced that it won't be used for that purpose it turns out that it is actually a massager and not a "Massager" as I originally thought.
This latest contender for the "most off the wall USB device" award allows you to tackle the aches and pains of the modern workplace without even having to leave your ergonimically failing workspace.
The device itself is palm sized disc covered in pliable nodules. When hooked up to your the USB port of your PC / Laptop it vibrates at a soothing 3600 rpm ready to be applied to whatever area is in need of massaging.
The USB massager comes with a 1.8m lead, allowing you to kick back from the desk a bit whilst enjoying your massage, and an instruction book that tells you where to stick it (so to speak).
"Why is it pointless?"
Not as much fun as a massage from a work colleague and control via web software does not appear to be available.
"Why is it cool?"
As well as being quite funky looking, the USB massager has to be the weirdest USB device we have seen so far. (watch this space - this is a hotly contested title).
