Security for virtualized datacentres

Skull USB Hub

If you're inviting a (skeleton) crew of fellow geeks around to celebrate a night of terror, you'll need to ensure they can keep their handheld hardware well charged to cope with the horror to come. So how about placing a few of these boney looking USB hubs around the room, hooked up to USB AC adaptors? Cast in resin but decorated with suitably from-the-catacombs paint job, the cropped cranium even allows the more daring room to place a candle. We saw this one on ThinkGeek, but the Ghoulgle search engine reveals a number of retailers whole supply you with one.
