 USB LED Beverage Cooler from Think Geek – $19.99 

Who says you gotta wait until five? – Ty

 The big refrigerator in your office cools a lot of stuff. Food, science experiments once known as food, and your secret stash…of drinks. Of drinks! But what happens when you just want one can at your desk and you want it cold? Well, plug in this small single-can beverage cooler into a USB port and chill a can on your desk. Then you won’t have to get up to get your drink.

The LED Beverage Cooler is retro styled and has a small blue LED inside. The LED helps your drink stay cool by tricking it to think the air inside the cooler is from the Arctic, because everyone knows that blue lights make you feel cold. So add a little style to your desk and keep your drink cold at the same time. Chill, dude.

I’m a really fidgety person and so when my friend told me about the neocube, my world changed. I became mesmerized while I watched a bunch of youtube videos of people making crazy things out of it. It’s so awesome! Also, apparently it’s not as easy to make as youtube videos suggest.
