Remember last November when I posted an entry about USB powered Christmas trees for decorating your favorite PC with? Well there’s a new version available from the folks at Mr.Gadget Australia that is less of a stylish interpretation as much as a miniature reproduction.
This USB Christmas Tree actually looks like a miniaturized version of those that you would see displayed in the windows of homes during the Christmas season. The USB Christmas tree has green leaves and a wooden-look-alike pot. The beauty about this USB Christmas tree is that the leaves won’t fall off and that it doesn’t require a huge effort to put up or pack away – it’s just a matter of finding a free USB port on your PC or notebook and then plugging it in. A great addition to the office and will definitely get people stopping by to talk about this neat USB gadget!
On a sturdy plastic base this USB powered Christmas tree will flash through a rainbow of colors(4 of them) and encourage festive spirits all day long.
It looks OK, but I’m not sure if I like it better than the other version I posted last year or not. Both will cycle through various colors, but the older model also includes an option to play back various carols in wonderfully tinny monophonic sound for a few bucks more. Either one is guaranteed to give your office’s PC Tech Support guy fits when he sees it plugged into your PC.
