Card reader doubles as backlit erasable memo pad

Every once in a while, Hong Kong novelty merchant Brando rolls out something cool. If you're looking to get rid of paper clutter around your desk, you'll agree that this $14 USB Moody Card Reader with Erasable Memo Pad qualifies as a useful item worthy of desktop space. On its top is an erasable surface you can use as a memo pad.

Imagine that — no more Post-it notes adding to your desktop chaos. And let's not forget its four memory card slots that make it even more useful. Adding to the whimsy is its built-in "moody light effect," backlighting your personal memos as if they were at the disco. The only downside is, you have to keep that special pen handy.
