Best. Device. Evar. ??

There are some crazy yet impressive gadgets out there. Many of them USB, but some other just creative designs.

Here are a few that I find cool, impressive, and useful:

USB Battery - Now you can recharge your AA battery and power your devices with the same unit.

Lithium ion (rechargable) MP3 Flash drive - Yes I know mp3 flash drives are a dime-a-dozen, but few are actually the size of a normal flash drive because they usually require AAA batteries, this one charges itself while you browse the files.

PowerDome - Portable Power (came in handy more than a few times)


What devices do you find to be "the best thing since sliced bread" ?

Post them here!

Roboraptor. I mean, come on - fluid bio-mechanical motion, three programmable behavior modes? You can't get that anywhere else.

Pterodactyls sold separately.

This is best device ever.

Before you laugh, ask yourself: how many of those fancy gadgets you're posting will still be usable 60 or 70 years from now?

No pictures of it online, but it was a combined toilet roll holder, FM radio and ashtray.

Classiest gadget I ever saw

Not really, if your out "fishing" as it suggests just go crap in a bush - unloading into a plastic bucket is just unecessary.

But what if you're not out fishing?! pwnt

and if you line it with a bag its even easier to just tie a knot and toss it.
