Cufflinks That Double as a Wi-Fi Hotspot

Yes, we all remember the endless parade of cufflinks that doubled as USB storage drives, if you missed it, it happened maybe four or five years ago.

But this is Y2K12, and there’s a new breed of high-tech cufflinks in town.

While one cufflink in the set of Polished Silver Oval Wifi and 2GB USB Cufflinks that Brookstone is selling indeed doubles as a USB storage drive

The other cufflink is an honest-to-goodness USB Wi-Fi hotspot. Why is this important?

Let’s say you’re at a wedding and the wireless router kicks the bucket. Just hook a laptop directly into the cable modem and then stick the Wi-Fi cufflink into one of the laptop’s USB ports.

In no time at all, you’ve got yourself a new wireless hotspot that all the guests can use to surf the web on their Wi-Fi-enabled devices.

This sounds like a boring wedding, but you just made it exponentially more interesting by being the guest with the Wi-Fi cufflinks, so there’s that.

The Wi-Fi cufflink requires software to be installed on the host computer, which you can download first or store on the other cufflink that doubles as a USB storage drive.

The cufflinks cost $250, but if you regularly purchase cufflinks, you probably have that kind of money in your cufflink budget.
