Thinking of the craziest yet useful gadget wouldn’t normally involve a couch. But the minds behind the USB Sofa are some special breed of human. I mean, couches do nothing but sit, stationary, never moving unless one of us humans move them. Why not make all of that wasted space go to good use by cramming in some digital storage? Everything else is becoming a USB drive, why not a couch? The only difference is that the USB Couch is actually useful and clever. You see, the concept is simple, a bevy of USB cables from underneath the cushions of the couch allowing users — mere strangers — to share ideas, information, and pretty much whatever data they want. Now obviously anything personal or secret shouldn’t be stored on such a drive as anyone who sits down with a computer can snatch said data. But lets say you need to save something for a friend or college you know is dropping by later.

Some may highlight the fact that simply emailing the information is just as easy and a heck of a lot more secure. It’s all about the options people. You never know, the sharing that goes on between complete strangers via the USB Couch could be quite the ice breaker. One small thing we need to stress is the 14GB storage limit. If you were thinking of anonymously sharing that entire Beatles catalog you torrented with the rest of the world in defiance of stupid labels and big corps botching modern technology, well, sorry to say it won’t happen here.

So how long before I can get two of these for my living room…?
