Good ideas with bad execution, or good execution of what should be bad ideas - an analysis of inferior, off-beat or malfunctioning products, and how other people's failures can help us design better stuff.

I can’t believe someone makes… USB skullhubs

usb-skullhub.jpgApologies in advance for the poor taste of these products. USB connectors have just gone too far – I can’t believe someone makes USB skullhubs… They’re ‘Scarily fast’, says the promo.

With Halloween – of course – being the excuse for this latest development in universal serial bus connectivity, the skullhub features four USB 2.0 ports, and a USB cable that is 56 inches long.

As if that wasn’t enough, how about some “Lung and Liver Head Figurine USB Drives” (pictured left)? What’s the capacity of those lungs, or livers? 4GB. Courtesy of USBGeek, they’ll set you back $20.

As is conventional, blue is for livers, orange is for lungs. Hang on, it’s the other way around.
