Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

We've all had that moment where we wanted to be able to check on different world times at a glance, or be able to launch a program with the push of a button, or maybe even just play with a fake slot machine. While all of these are easily possible from any computer, there's a new accessory out there that makes you use up a USB port to have the same controls.

It's the Optimus Mini Keyboard, and I guess the real attraction about it is that it is quite the eye catcher. We've reported about it a couple times before, but now it's actually out and there's a video of it in action.The video is over at Gizmodo, which shows all of the different functions you can assign to the multi-button device, not the least of which is being able to turn it into a virtual slot machine. Considering how strict the government has gotten about Internet gambling, this may be the new way to just waste hours of your time.

It's available from ThinkGeek for $160
