Star Wars USB Hubs: the Force is With Your Devices

by


These official R2-D2 and Darth Vader USB hubs from Japan’s Cube-Works are a must for any serious Star Wars fan with a computer. Whether you’re pro-Jedi or have a serious Sith streak, they’re the perfect desktop companion for connecting your USB gadgets.

Both R2 and Darth offer four full-speed USB ports on their front. Now my Japanese isn’t all that great, but it sounds like every 3 minutes, R2′s head moves and lights up, and both hubs play some appropriate sound effects from the house that Lucas built.

While I just love the details on the little droid, the minute I read that Vader’s eyeballs glow when connected to a powered USB port, I came over to the Dark Side for good.

For the moment, these hubs are available only in Japan, but it’s only a matter of time before these hubs find their way to the rest of the world via importers.

They should be hitting the streets of Tokyo in July at a price of ¥7,140 (appx. $66 USD) each. Post a comment if you happen to find a retailer!

    Looks like importer GeekStuff4U will be bringing these stateside this August:

    At $116 USD, it’s quite a premium over the Japanese retail price, but for now, it’s the only way to get your hands on these.

    The price in the link is for both Darth Vader and R2D2 så it is an okay price

    may the price is ok for real sw fans. for a normal user it’s def. too much. an consider the quality – the image of Vader’s USB Hub shows a poor quality.
