Fish Tank Bus Stop May Not Be Entirely Practical

Wouldn't it be nice, while waiting for the bus, to have an aquarium full of fish to look at? At least for those first few days, until they die, at which point it'd get depressing. » 4/08/09 11:30am 4/08/09 11:30am

Marketed in Korea, this USB Fishtank is the perfect thing for a desk jockey that's too lazy to actually turn and take care of its fish.

USB Aquarium Gets Bigger, Prettier

I am happy to report this is not a post about that wretched PS3, rather it is a post about a super-fun, awesome USB Aquarium. We've seen them in the past, but this one is a bit better because it is twice as large and well over twice as pretty.
