Tales of the empirical

The USB Plasma Ball doesn't care if you give it a crummy old USB 1.1 connection; it works just the same.

(Source of crummy old USB 1.1 connection: Toshi, my faithful Road Warrior notebook, age six, which apparently is not upgradable to 2.0.)

"The USB Plasma Ball doesn't care if you give it a crummy old USB 1.1 connection..."

So I guess it's not a relative of the infamous Happy Fun Ball, then?

Those plasma bolts may sound like fun and games, until your finger twitches and you fry your motherboard.

Or worse, your computer's.

Well, one thing it doesn't have in common with the Happy Fun Ball is a tendency to accelerate to frightening speeds.
