Japanese Computer Accessories: Cute or Bizarre?

Like many things in Japanese pop culture, what I’m about to show you could be filed under “Adorable but Useless” or “Useful but Odd,” depending how you feel.

First up is a humidifier that’s shaped like a can of green tea. It’s powered by a USB connector and fits right in with the clutter of junk next to your computer. It secretly keeps you hydrated, but what if one of your co-workers decides to recycle the can one night, after seeing it on your desk for months on end?

Next up is a USB memory stick attached to a tiny, sweet-looking white cat. It’s handmade with chirimen silk crepe, the same material used to create Japanese kimonos. (In fact, this fabric is so special it warrants its own museum.)

Good things come in threes, so here’s one more: a USB stick with a Post-it pad attached! You get 100 stickies and 2GBs of memory, and it retails for $30, which is cheap compared to the two other trinkets: the humidifier goes for $60, and the cat stick will set you back $82.
