Unitasker Wednesday: USB guard dog

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

Add this USB guard dog to the ever expanding list of useful desktop gadgets. If you are worried about the safety of the contents of your desk, you may want to protect them with Rex. With Rex you will have peace of mind that no one will mess with any of your belongings while you are away. 

The guard dog uses a motion sensor to activate. Once engaged, the guard dog barks and terrifies any intruder. I have no doubt that this USB beast will keep your co-workers at bay. From the product description:

The Desktop USB Guard Dog is here to protect your desk from any unwanted guests. Just plug him in (or insert batteries) and Rex will let out a menacing growl each time someone comes too close.

Guard your desk and leave Rex in charge, he will alert everyone to those unwanted intruders.

Here are some more great USB unitaskers that Rex can help you protect: Fragrance Oil Burner, 4-in-1 desk lamp, and the USB mini fridge.

Thanks to reader Jeanne for bringing this unitasker to our attention.

    I was thinking the same as Donna – keep my cats away from my computer so I can finally get some work done!

    This is perfect! All the desk- and computer- cluttering of an unnecessary USB device combined with the maddening annoyance and lack of actual security I find in car alarms, wrapped up in a “there’s no way to take this worker seriously” package!

    Gifts for all my coworkers: check.

    Of course, if you don’t like dogs, there’s a USB bouncer…

    actually, this might be a great way to keep my cat away from my keyboard. i know this sounds stupid, but my cat’s greatest pleasure in life is to lay on my laptop or desktop keyboard. i’m a doctoral student, so this causes me much heartache. hmmm…
