This mock rice cooker USB speaker from Thanko has a lot going in its favor—it's compact, has a novel design, plugs into a USB port and functions as a speaker.

The Rice Cooker USB Mini Speaker is the perfect size for listening to some great beats and reminding you to get up and make a meal. Just like a portable music player or a phone, this miniature rice cooker can be plugged in and powered up by a computer. Like a home appliance, the fake mini rice cooker has a convincing on and off switch. The novel speaker design won't actually cook your meals for you, but it is a fun way to fool people into thinking that it will.
