The Messy USB Home Pregnancy Test

Alright, this obsession with using the USB ports on your computer has just gone too far. I’m sorry, but when did plugging something that was just urinated on into your computer ever sound like a good idea?

The worst part, plugging it in to the USB port actually offers up a useful function, namely displaying more data regarding what was found in what you just leaked onto the thing. Sure you can get the standard results of any other home pregnancy test right off of the electronic surface of the stick, but if you plug it in you get charts and graphs, all sorts of useful stuff.

The name is absolutely horrid too, PTeq, really? That’s the best you’ve got for $17.99 a pop? So you pee on it, plug it in to your USB port and that starts the whole mass spectrometry process informing you of hCG, hCG-H, and LH hormone levels with a 99% accuracy, and yes, it works with Macs as well as Windows machines, and Linux kernel 2.4 or higher. For the $18 you get the unit and 20 test strips, lets hope you don’t have 20+ questionable encounters before you lose this thing, you can pick one up at ThinkGeek.
