I know it’s mostly meant for novelty purposes, but I like the potential this fake USB cable has for prankery. The end opposite the USB connector terminates in a plastic nub which can be convincingly attached to anything that the included double-sided tiny adhesive discs stick to. So besides attaching it to hilarious items like a banana, milk carton or even a toddler, you can also attach it to more plausible items like electric staplers, desk phones or other electronics that seem like they should be detected when connected to a PC. But when they’re not, there’s the potential for driving your IT person crazy when they can’t get it to show up and can’t find the proper drivers either.
