Japan's SolidAlliance earned a warm place in our collective nerd bosom long ago for the sheer lunacy of the products it creates. Today it's offering round two of its Crazy Earphone collection that includes some kind of mushroom (that is a mushroom, right?), the ol' Katana blade or arrow through the

So, you broke the bank (and several credit cards) picking up that uber-stylish Acronym GT-J14 earbud-friendly jacket only to find that no one even noticed? Or perhaps your Lady GaGa-approved beats couldn't endure the Paris Is Burning-style bad craziness you put 'em through? Well, it looks like it's

We'll be straight with you: there's no single expression of bad-assery more potent in the polyhedral kingdom of nerdistan than the USB Skull Ring. Brought to you by Solid Alliance, the 2GB USB drive feels right at home transferring files to your PC or at the end of a fist, deftly buried into the gu

We can't say that no one has ever doled out a USB flash drive with a hint of Lego before, but how could one ever complain about more? This go 'round, it's Solid Alliance doing the deed with its USB Brick Key. The device arrives doused in green, black, blue or red and offers up 1GB of internal stora

We've already seen Sony and Nintendo (er, an avid fanboy) get down with their bad selves and celebrate with cakes that represent their respective milestones, but Solid Alliance is out to make sure no one gets shunned from the festivities. That's right kids, even the USB obsessed can find a reason t

Could it be... why yes, something we'd actually purchase from none other than SolidAlliance. The USB RC Car takes on a charge while parked in the garage. Flip open the door and turn the Mini loose on the mean cubicle circuits of your beige-soaked accounting dreams. Bad news: Win2k or XP PC, only. Go

If the talking heart mouse was the brain child of anyone other than Solid Alliance, we'd probably question its legitimacy, but considering that zany is this company's mantra, we're not surprised in the least. On the surface, this shiny red USB mouse boasts a left and right click, a scroll-wheel, an

We know, you're probably on your third USB hub by now, but even if this forces you to purchase an entirely new machine in order to cram one more USB-powered whatchamacallit into it, it's simply a must. Meet Tengu, the USB lip syncer that politely sits beside your machine until it gets wind of nearb

Oh yes it is a gadget. Look closely -- but not too closely -- into this queasy sea of food-like twaddle and you'll spot a foursome of USB connectors. That's right, that pile of legless larvae Rice-Tomato thingy is the hub while the other courses pack 1GB of flash memory. This USB FoodHub is claimed

The only thing that could be possibly trump an interview with the CEO of Thanko, is an interview with the CEO from Japan's SolidAlliance. You know, SolidA, the eccentric kooks behind the original USB Sushi and other such master crapsmanship. Mister Karahara sat down with Akihabara News to display t

What can we say? The latest mouse from SolidAlliance is so ugly, even the Ristretto coffee mouse retches in disgust. This ain't no SolidA mouse cover, it's an honest to goodness USB \"mouse\" equipped with some kind of motion sensing dark magic; the same sort evoking bile from the pit of your bowels

Mmmm, nothing says \"I'm a dangerous loner\" like plugging a SolidAlliance USB anything into your PC. At least this time, the USB Horse Mackerel Sushi nudges SolidA's novelty flash drives just beyond the free tradeshow schwag range -- 1GB if you must know. But if storage was your primary interest you

It's been awhile since we've heard a peep out of Japan's SolidAlliance. Perhaps it's because the team has been so patiently waiting for their new Rice Omelette (Omuraice) mouse cover to putrefy. The first question of course, is why would you want to cover your mouse? And b... why with this? If you

Oh hell yeah Solid A, do that USB thing that you do! From the makers of USB Sushi, Saki, Spaghetti, and other foodish novelties which amuse adults and make children cry, we bring you Solid Alliance's glowing USB Squid. Mmmm, tasty. Sure, ¥5,980 (about $51) for 512MB of flash is nuts, but then a

We all know that Solid Alliance occasionally strays into non compos mentis, but check this one, childrens. The Kore Ja Nai sure looks like a wooden toy robot, right? But that name translates roughly into \"this is not it\" and is purposely meant to invoke painful feelings from childhood. You know, li

Oh hell yeah! One-upping their own lurid kitsch, SolidAlliance just introduced this ¥100,000 ($850 plus), MOTTAINAI USB flash drive. Obviously, at 2GB it's not about capacity here, this gold and brass drive is a salute to ostentatious pomp with embedded Statsuma Kiriko crystal. Make them crysta

You are getting sleepy, very sleepy. You eyelids are slowly drooping, drooping down. You have seen your fair share of USB flash drives, but this 256MB USB pendant from Solid Alliance is certainly a first. In addition to acting like a plain old storage device, the pendant promises to help you find y

Keeping with our theme of lame and gimmicky USB hubs, we have this little number from Solid Alliance. While we have no idea why someone would make a USB 2.0 hub in the shape of a button that could spark a civilization-ending nuclear war, we really can't fault them for creativity. We're also not sur
