usbnoodlestrainer.jpgApparently the Japanese USB-powered noodle strainer is not a noodle strainer after all! According to Gizmodo, it's either a cooler or a moisturizer for noodles before being dipped into the sauce. We at Gothamist think it's both (you want your soba noodles to be both cold and moist) and will have to stop in Tokyo during our next trip to the Far East to bring Gizmodo some sort of USB-powered lint remover or stapler.
