Chick-a-Dee Smoke Detector
This lovely little bird “passes as art” but can save lives. It sounds a warning “chick-a-dee-dee” at the slightest threat of danger, and if smoke thickens, the song grows louder.
Fuuvi Digital Camera
Your friends might not mistake this “heart-meltingly sweet” key-chain fob for an actual candy bar, but none of them will guess that it’s actually a camera with a 0.3-megapixel CMOS lens and a built-in rechargeable battery.
Cork USB Drive
This USB drive carries 2 GB of memory, so “it’s probably best not to make it pull double duty” as an actual wine stopper. How you keep from throwing it out is another question.
Candy MP3 Speaker
This lollipop speaker makes it easy to share music anytime, anywhere. Sure, it “looks good enough to eat,” but it also “packs sonic punch”—providing six hours of continuous play.
