Lucas shows off some
awesome Star Wars USB gadgets and gear. If you're a cubicle monkey (we're not judging; we're rocking the cubicle styles too) you probably grow tired of staring at the same grey walls, the same grey desk, shuffling around on the same piece of grey carpet and breathing the same recycled air day in, day out. Sometimes you just want to say forget this, hop a plane to Fiji or some other far-flung destination and be done with it. Liquidate your bank accounts, get a backpack and some of those fisherman pants that all the hip backpackers seem to wear and get on the road. Travel, expand horizons, meet new people, see sights you'd never see from your cubicle window or, if you're a little further down the ladder, the windows closest to your cubicle... Where were we? Right.
Star Wars USB gadgetsto make your cubicle slightly less cubist. Lucas has got 'em.
