Just purchased one of these: http://www.amazon.co...ils_o02_s00_i00 and I'm like to be able to power regular devices that use AC power from it as well (Like my Nintendo 3DS). Is there any SAFE way to do this?

USB is only 5 volts DC, so its usage is going to be limited. Somewhere someone is working on the next home air conditioning unit powered by USB though :lol:

Do you still get the 8 hours on your laptop battery with one of those? I love the toaster, 4 slices in 30 minutes. :lol:

The USB Toaster is only $8. Of course it's just an empty box.

The microwave apparently is real, but it's $160. I can get a real microwave oven for half the price at Costco.

Yep, but in the spirit of the thread the OP wants "everything" to be USB :D
