  • A Universally Serious Ball!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - USB connectivity for use anywhere
    - Comes with a wall-socket to USB adapter (100-250V)
    - Very nice decorative USB device

    Cons:

    - The PS-made base appears fragile (but one shouldn't throw this thing around anyway)
    - Audible booster circuit
    - Would be nice to have a mini-USB interface at the base
    - Mine didn't work without a driver (just kidding)

    OtherThoughts:

    If a USB interface is kept throughout the unit, there is potential to develop a system that allows the user to modify the plasma from the computer.

    The unit draws about 500mA, so a powered USB hub is recommended (if the included power supply is not used).

    Bottomline:

    Great gift for a friend and for oneself.
