USB pendant made of wood (yawn)

Brando gets some points for trying, but that's about it.

Brando

We're not exactly sure if this qualifies as part of the gadget jewelry trend, but it's probably the closest that Hong Kong-based Brando will ever get. (This, you'll recall, is the outfit responsible for the massaging mouse and a pig-shaped USB card reader .)

Yet valiently they try, in the form of a 2GB wooden USB memory strap that's apparently meant to be worn around the neck. Yeah, pretty ugly. Some unsolicited advice for the company: Stick to the stuff you know, like the mouse hand warmer .
