I feel like this product has been kickin’ around for a while, but what the hell:

There are products you use and there are products that you gift. In the case of the Fundue its the product you gift (kinda like those damn Urban Outfitter books). The Fundue (as in Fun…geez) is a USB based Fondue pot. That’s right, it sucks the power from your computer to melt cheese and chocolate. Stupid? Yes. Useful? No. Sit on your desk for years to come as a mere ‘dash board’ ornament? Definitely.

I am hard pressed to believe enough power can be derived from the USB port, but maybe one of our readers will purchase and test.

Available at ThinkGeek for $29.99 – TURNS OUT ITS FAKE. Just try adding it to your shopping cart.

  • 1 Fundue™ pot with blue LED regulated heating element

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
