ThinkGeek sinister USB Snowbot


Christmas must be coming – I suddenly feel myself drawn to seasonal gadgets I wouldn’t ordinarily have in the house – like this ThinkGeek USB Snowbot.

So, how can a snowman be sinister? Well, looks for a start, along with a slightly disturbing scanning LED robotic eye. The LED eye scrolls in a choice of red or blue, with the rate of scroll controlled by you. If that’s not enough, the Snowbot has its own rather sinister sound (no carols here) and if you hadn’t noticed, some rather nasty rotating claw-like hands.

However, on the plus side, it should be a head-turner in the office and would make a welcome change from the tired old USB Christmas tree, which is probably still in your drawer from last year.

Available now, you can pick it up for $14.99.
