USB hamster works out as you type


Here’s proof that USB-powered gadgets are getting out of hand and that the typing test as we know it is on its way toward becoming obsolete.

After installing the supplied software, plug this small (14 x 13 x 12 cm) hamster wheel into your USB port and just start typing. Each key press gets the wheel spinning and the plush hamster running. Hunt-and-peck typists will set the hamster on a slow and steady jog, while speedy folks will send the little one on a sprint. That’s right: the faster you type, the faster the hamster runs.

The job-application process will never be the same! So don’t be surprised when employers start looking for applicants who can type at least 60 RPM.

The USB hamster wheel requires 2 AA batteries (included) and retails for about $50 at UK-based online shops like crazyaboutgadgets and I Want One of Those.
