This complete waste of everyone's time is the Portable Desktop Dancing Water Fountain from Brando. It reacts to sound by squirting synchronised jets of water a couple of inches into the air "to create a peacful oasis," says the product site. You can turn off the sound activated option so that the jets all go off constantly, but the only option I'm interested in is the one where I opt to pick up this battery-operated unit and throw it out of my window to create my own 'peaceful oasis'. Price and features after the jump.
