Quirky Contort USB Hub Manages Its Own Cables
October 28th, 2010
Any computer user eventually needs a USB hub for one reason or another. It might be that your machine only had a few USB ports and you are out, or you may just need to get some ports further from your computer and a hub and long cable works well for that. Quirky has a cool new USB hub that will give you more ports and can take care of its own mess of cables.
The hub is called the Contort. Its integrated USB plug is on a flexible head made from TPE rubber. The hub has four ports on top and the middle section is expandable to handle USB cords. The device measures in at 34mm W x 142mm L x 24mm H and it can expand to 36mm H to hide more cables.
The Contort also has integrated cord anchors and those anchors can hold more than one cable if needed. Most of Quirky’s gear is pre-order and the Contort is no different. So far, 29 of the 1650 Quirky wants to build are spoken for at $29.99 each. If you want one, you can pre-order here.
