Technically, you can plug your mouse or SD-card reader into a USB3 port, but it will make 0 difference on transfer speed as the bottleneck is not the USB2 port.
Storage benefits from USB3 and future webcams will take advantage of the faster transfer speed to output RAW 1080p video for example..
Thanks frenchy2k1
