There’s really nothing to this USB device, the Squirming Tentacle. It won’t store anything, but it might just scare off small siblings from messing with your laptop when you leave it unlocked and running. I’m not sure which I prefer; this or the USB Humping Dog, but there is nothing that says you (or I) can have both.
ThinkGeek sells the USB Squirming Tentacle for $25. Buy a USB hub (a powered one since it draws a minute amount of power) and you can have a whole mess of squirming tentacles.
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."
