Little Dude Could be My Favorite USB Hub Ever

by Paul Strauss

There’s something that’s just right about this USB hub. The little guy strikes a near-perfect balance between design, simplicity and functionality (although that’s the one place it falls a little short).

Kikkerland USB Hub Guy

Kikkerland’s USB Hub Man has flexible wire arms and legs with a port at the end of each one. His body houses all the electronics and a tiny green power indicator LED in place of a heart.

The only bummer about Hub Man is that only one of his ports runs at USB 2.0 speeds without a special adapter. Hopefully, they’ll make him fully high-speed compliant in the future.

Expect these to start hitting stores in the next month or so, at a retail price of about $19 each. Check back later for details on where to order yours. [UPDATE: You can now find these over on Amazon.]

    Kikkerland USB Hub Man…

    What could be better than a regular 4-port USB hub? Well, how about a happy-lookin’ USB Hub Man? Simple and small. Available on Kikkerland.com in a month or so to an estimated price of $19.00.

    I have bought this little hub man and found that all of its hands and legs runs at USD2.0 high speed.

    I love this hub man very much as its four seperate hub port offers me extreme convenience. I think its the best USB hub in the world…
