Finding useless and shallow ways to spend your money is extremely easy, but it takes some serious productivity-killing time to find cool (aka nerdy) things to shell out for.
Today's awesome and unecessarily over-the-top gadget is the Star Wars USB hub! Not only fulfilling a high-level dork quotient, at $75 a pop, this tasty item is wallet-shockingly expensive. Plus, it's Japanese! This fact not only makes it extremely cool, it bumps the cost factor up 10 fold because you have to import it and pay the third party importer as well as the absurb shipping costs!
Of course, it's definitely worth every penny because Japanese don't just make USB hubs that look like Star Wars characters, they light the damn things up, throw in some mechanical doo-hickies to give 'em movement, and add in random authentic sounds to boot! Holy SuperFanLove Otaku-style, gunm! Order me up a Vader and R2 stat!
Look closely and you will see Japanese Artoo has his own onomanopeia. Pi pi pi!
