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...

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...

If you thought Asus' Aura concept phone was otherworldly, you haven't seen anything yet. SolidAlliance is back yet again with another zany and completely unnecessary cellphone accessory that purportedly changes hues based on the planetary mojo that's currently going on around it. There's not much t...

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...
