Here's the first cousin to the electric fork, the USB absinthe spoon. The makers of the prototype you see above are looking for volunteers to test this precision instrument, used to hold a sugar cube onto which you pour the bitterly awful-tasting absinthe to make it palatable. But what does USB have to do with it? Perhaps its inventors imbibed too much absinthe, and forgot to determine a reason for plugging the thing into a USB port.
If you're not familiar with absinthe, it's an alcoholic beverage that's illegal in the United States. Why is it illegal? Because somebody said one time a long time ago that la Fée Verte (the green fairy) made you hallucinate, which it probably doesn't. Of course, anything that might cause even a hint of hallucination has got to be illegal in the US, doesn't it?
