Thanko USB-powered cat nose fan makes me wonder WTF

Thanko offers another thing that makes you go hmmmm

I have seen some weird crap that is supposed to attach to your computer over the years. Thanko sells a lot of that weird crap too. One of the stranger things was a microscope that you could use to look at your zits up close. That one made me go WTF. The latest form Thanko is another of the WTF items that the company offers.

I always wonder why I see the Japanese folks in footage of Tokyo walking around in surgical masks everywhere. I assume they are afraid of germs. Thanko has a new gadget that will plug into the USB port on your computer that you wear over that surgical mask. The name is in Japanese so I don't know what it's really called.

 

The device is a USB fan that looks like a cat nose and mouth. It even has whiskers! I spent many a year working in the medical world and I can tell you it gets hard to breath in surgical masks. I guess the point is to blow some cool air in there to keep you from getting too hot. The downside is you will look like some sort of perverted weirdo wearing this thing. It sells for 1980 yen on Thanko.
