This is an odd USB gadget that doesn’t come from Thanko for a change. A company called Japan Trust Technology is selling a mini Japanese style garden [JP] (OK, it’s just a couple of plastic bamboos) that includes a watering system and is powered by USB.
The so-called USB Hakoshishi is weird, but it looks kind of cool. It costs $25 and is Japan-only. Ask the Japan Trend Shop, Gizmine, Geek Stuff 4 U or Rinkya if you live outside Nippon and ask if they can get it for you.
