This USB-powered tentacle is firmly ensconced in the novelty department. When plugged in, it wiggles and squirms back and forth, (somewhat) realistically emulating an octopus. However, it holds no other use than being creepy-cool. The current version holds no data, and judging from the consumer feedback, that’s a bit of a sticking point. It’s still a pretty cool submission for the office holiday gift exchange or Aunt Edna’s white elephant.
