From a usefulness standpoint, we're liking the Lisco USB Snake. From a fashion standpoint, we're not so sure. Still, you got to give props to Laurent Hongisto, the Finnish designer who came up with a USB cable that can be worn as a slap-bracelet-inspired wristband.

Hongisto covers USB cables in a silky polyurethane material, making the otherwise not-so-comfy cables comfortable enough to wear. Those who've spent half an hour searching for a USB cable might appreciate this '90s-style bit of peripheral couture.
