Shake those pinkies with the USB Dance Mat game

Finger-twistin' fun, it says here

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

We thought real dance mat games were bad enough, but at least players can argue it keeps 'em fit. Not so the miniature, USB-powered version that's just been released.

USB Dance Mat
The USB Dance Mat: why oh why?

It's truly a case of let your fingers do the dancin' as you strive to match the mat's sequences of ever-more-complicated, ever-faster flashing lights.

And if you want to image you're playing the real thing, this mini version even comes with a cut-out cardboard dancer to slide over your pinkies. Hours of fun. Apparently.

Only a tenner, it's available from Drinkstuff.com. When will this madness end?
