Still a teenager (she was created 16 years ago, in 2007), the Vocaloid software voice bank and virtual singer Hatsune Miku has enjoyed a career many real singers would envy. Even people who don't go to her concerts appreciate her as a pop culture icon, elevating Miku to the same level of stardom as characters from major manga and anime franchises. And since this is Japan, the world hub of pop culture merchandise, you can even find some very unusual and inventive tie-in items, like the Hatsune Miku USB Blanket!
The Hatsune Miku USB Blanket is actually made of two parts: a 60 x 100 cm (23.6 x 39.4") blanket and a Hatsune Miku plush toy attached to the middle. When you plug the blanket into a power source using its Type-A USB cable, it warms up in about 30 seconds, reaching a temperature of 44°C (111.2°F). Soft (it's made of polyester) and warm, this is a great companion for the times you stay in front of your computer on a chilly night, working or just binging your favorite show!
