Little Dude Could be My Favorite USB Hub Ever
September 4th, 2007
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’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.]
