'Lego-esque' gadgets tap into craze

MP3 players, speaker docks, and now USB keys.

Apparently the Lego-iPod mashup that surfaced last year has tapped into a demand for other brick-like products, though we can't help but wonder if trademark complaints are in the offing.

Yesterday, for example, Technabob passed along a selection of "Lego-esque media players" and matching stereo docks in various colors. And today, Akihabara News tells us of a "Lego-like USB key" that can be joined with other pieces to create a custom flash drive.

The keys have only 1GB of storage space, but don't worry: When it's full, you can still play with them because they are "100 percent compatible" with authentic Lego bricks. We doubt, by the way, that these products are dishwasher-safe.
