Stress balls are a great way to relieve tension, but since no gift is complete nowadays unless it comes with a USB cable dangling from it, this tech-take on the stress ball could be the answer. The USB Stress Ball ($ 14.6) not only provides some physical stress relief, but some virtual stress relief, as well.
Like any stock, standard stress ball this USB equipped version can be squeezed and twisted to your heart’s content, but unlike its less technological cousins, it also translates the physical punishment being inflicted upon it to the images on your computer screen. If you receive an annoying email from Byron in accounting, grab the USB Stress Ball and feel that frustration dissipate as said email is pulverized. Sure, the annoying email will still be there when you release the stress ball, but you’ll be in a much better state of mind to deal with it, and you’ll have managed to avoid putting your fist through the screen.
