A ladybug with multiple personalities

This gadget has a bizarre combination of functions, including a UV counterfeit money detector.

We really don't know what to make of this gadget, for a variety of reasons. First there's the odd combination of features--memory card reader, flash drive, USB charger, and a UV counterfeit money detector, of all things. Then there's the $9.99 price, which can barely buy a keychain these days. But weirdest of all is the design: a ladybug.

One can't help but wonder what goes through the mind of an engineer who comes up with something like this. Actually, it's probably just as well that this twisted thought process isn't applied to something even more bizarre. Whatever the case, this gizmo certainly lives up to its billing as a "multi-functional" device. Whether anyone will want this particular combination of functions, of course, is another question.
