  • Wiggly evil

    Out of every odd USB stocking filler you could find, the "Wiggly Evil" Squirming Tentacle is up there in the top ranks of weird and pointless.

    For $14.99, you would be forgiven in expecting an element of storage. But no. It simply.. squirms once you've plugged the product into a USB port.

  • Mini Robot Vacuum

    The Mini Robot Vacuum is quite an odd but cute gimmick that actually does have a use -- sucking up the crumbs and dust no doubt covering your laptop's keyboard. Powered by AA batteries, a user simply needs to press the top button and the irritating problem of hard-to-reach debris on your computer is gone. 

    You can purchase each vacuum for $18 at FredFlare in three colors.

  • The Hapifork

    "I'll start my diet tomorrow."

    Many of us have said these words, but a new if slightly peculiar gadget may help you reach your health and weight goals. The HAPIfork is a smart piece of cutlery equipped with Bluetooth radio, sensors and a vibrating motor to track your eating habits.

    The fork detects how many bites you take, warns you if you're eating too quickly, and sends data to an application which can be used by the owner to take stock of how much they are consuming. The idea behind the design is that by logging your eating habits, keeping potion sizes under control will be easier.
