Craziest USB Hubs
Aphrodite was the Greek Goddess of love and now she can be your Goddess of Hub with the Aphrodite USB Hub. This bust is made of ceramic with a slip resistant base and has 4 ports to charge all the USB gadgets you love.
To put some fun into the daily boring USB's and USB Hubs we see day in, day out, in every home, office and work place.
More USB hubs after the break!
Big ol' jetliner, don't carry me too far away. I really like the design of this USB Airplane Hub with Fan. The aircraft's propeller serves as a real working fan (with an on/off switch just above the cockpit) and the wings each have 2 USB ports to plug your gadgets into. When you plug this airplane into your computer it makes a sound like a jet engine taking off, which is only mildly annoying. Unlike a lot of other novelty USB Hubs, this one doesn't look like they just took some cool object and randomly slapped a few USB ports into it - the ports look like they belong on the plane. Nice one.
Turn your desk into a blooming garden with this pretty tulip USB Hub! Four USB high-speed ports are included, with one colorful red flower for each.
All hail the mighty Roboto, come to conquer our desks and lay siege to our peripherals! Bow before his diminutive wrath! Standing a towering four inches tall, it really does wind up and stomp about your work space when it isn't commanding your accessories with its four USB slots, or controlling your mind with its glowing green eyes. Roboto is available from Fred Flare for $24.
Who in their right mind would NOT want this USB Hub on their desk? The top of the skull is even hollowed out to hold your fave candy (Candy Corn anyone?), keys, spare change, paper clips, razor blades, plastic spiders or even eye of newt! You can pick this baby up at ThinkGeek.com for $24.99. Macabre and yet useful!
Far too many peripheral hubs are cranked out without a single thought given to design, but thankfully, the creators of the Medusa Hub realized that aesthetics do matter. This interesting piece, which is sure to claim a section of prime real estate on your desk, boasts a trendy white finish, four USB 2.0 sockets, a pair of FireWire 400 connectors, a fan, and even a light. Medusa was a mythical creature, a Gorgon woman with snakes for hair that was so ugly, she'd turn anyone who looked at her into stone.
This is a good choice for those USB fans. Shaped like a chocolate bar, the modular USB set could be a delicious device for your computer. Each piece functions as a modular flash drive, and the central hub's touchscreen allows you to organize your files without connecting to the computer.
These stackable LEGO USB Hubs are available from Korean retailer, DCX, for 15,920 KRW ($12 USD).
Ok, forget every USB Hub you've seen before…. these Transformers Hubs are the shit! He doesn't transform into your typical boom box, but into a fully functional USB HUB device disguised as a laptop computer. The USB HUB carries 4 ports and is usable in Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/ Vista and MAC operating systems. When transformed into robot mode, Blaster can be posed in a variety of ways due to the multiple joints of movement, and will surprise anyone passing by your cubicle. Hey, where did that robot go, and why do you have two computers on your desk? This USB HUB truly is More than Meets the Eye!
