Ten Way-Cool Hubs
Quadruple Bypass Anyone?
Did I Mention USB?
I love, did I say love, I mean I LOVE gadgets. I picked these USB hubs because I think they are cool looking and useful, but mostly because I just wanted to have fun with my fellow hubbers. I didn't include the vendors so just enjoy the whacked-out coolness of them. While these aren't what you were suspecting, you gotta admit, connecting to colorful hearts for a digital triple or quadruple (USB) bypass has a kind of Grey's Anatomy flair to it.
The Gold Connection
All That Glitters
Admit it. You've always secretly wanted your own gold ingot sitting on your desk. Converting your digital riches into gold via USB cables has got to be the ultimate gold exchange. Indiana Jones found one of these in a pyramid and the feds are now keeping it at Fort Knox along with the Lost Ark of the Covenant.
Hey R2D2 Was an Interface Hero Before There Was USB
Save Me Obi-Wan You're My Only Hope!
I don't know if it makes those cool sounds, but you can be Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia and plug something into R2D2 and maybe save the galaxy or your job or your kid's homework all while reminiscing about an alternate life a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.
Lego My USB Cable
Can I Hook it up Daddy, Can I, Can I
Who says computer work can't be child's play? Besides, if you build it they will come---and borrow it. I mean who wouldn't? And if you stack up enough of them, you could build your own mini cubicle and work on your hubs in total privacy.
This Way for the Exit Man
Interface But Always Have an Exit Line
I love this green dude. He reminds me of Gumby. By the way, did you know that Art Clokey made Gumby's head slanted after a 1900's picture of his father that had a giant one sided cowlick.
Jacob's Ladder Lets Data Angels Ascend and Descend
Don't Try to Hide a Dollar Bill in This One
Jacobs Ladder Wooden Illusion Toy is a one of the most
ancient and famous of folk toys. Legend has it that one was found in
King Tut's tomb, which means these fascinating toys were played with in
Egypt before 1352 B.C.This cool hub, however, is not wooden and although it is flexible, don't try to make it tumble back and forth with a folded up dollar appearing and reappearing. Just hook up like King Tut and bury all your faithful data in your hard drive crypt.
Octopus Octopus USB Hub Bus
Four Legged Octopus
Here are four four-legged octopuses or is it octopi?
I never saw the octopi. I've been way too preocupi.
They wrap you in their tentacles, squirt you with their inktacles.
They'll lug you to their ocean bed and hug you till you turn bright red.
You say it's quite preposterous, till you're hugged by an octopus.
Ok, ok that one was for Ogden Nash who wrote--Shake, shake "the catsup bottle, first a little, then a lottle
USB and Sound for Free
No Batteries, No Wall Plug, Just USB
I can hear Goldilocks now: "This speaker is too big and the components are soo huge!" and then "This speaker is too small and I still have to plug in to the wall!" but then she spots the Cubite---"This speaker is juuuuust right, it plugs into the computer, has a big sound and it's adorable!
Seriously, I have one of these and they are nifty!
Hey Fly-Boy You Want to Interface?
USB Airlines--We Connect You
Not since Amelia Earhart caused all that commotion have you seen a more appealing stubby plane. You can pretend you are fueling it up, talking to the captain, getting ready for a little stunt flying exhibition or you can just hold it up above your desk and go "Varrrrrroooom varrrroooom!" But if the boss catches you just say you were blowing lint out of the USB connections and hook it back up to the computer.
Luke, The Force is Strong in my USB Ports
Plug Your Light Saber in any of Four Ports
Obi-Wan still lives when you plug him into Darth Vader. Load the latest episode of Star Wars and watch as Lord Vader chokes on his own data stream. You can also get the R2D2 version and hook them both up. "Don't listen to him R2! Even if he is Luke's father, you can't trust him!" "Hmmm the farce is strong in this one."..... Or not.
