Don't just daydream--enter the vortex

Hours of fun with a USB device that's even practical.

Discovery Communications

Acknowledging our generational biases, we've noted our partiality to the lava lamp in its original form, or at least as close as possible . Although we've tried to keep an open mind about more contemporary equivalents, few can even approach the volcanic icon of our wasted youth (so to speak).

But Discovery has managed to come close with a USB swirling vortex that looks good enough to keep us mesmerized even without artificial enhancements . This LED-illuminated item has a practical use beyond its entertainment value as well, housing four USB ports in a 180-degree revolving hub. With any luck, it'll be the closest we ever get to experiencing a tornado , with or without hallucinogens.
