Peas USB Hub: Not as Dirty it Looks
October 26th, 2011
This funky-looking gadget might look like something kinky that was destined for your bedroom, but it’s not. It’s called the Peas USB Hub, a 4-port hub designed to look like peas in a pod.
The company that makes these is Lexon, and they were designed by Simone Spalvieri and Valentina del Ciotto. The hubs are self-powered, so they will just plug into a USB port and don’t need to be plugged in an outlet. This can be good and bad, depending on what kind of peripherals you plug into the hub and how much juice they need.
If you can get over their, um, unusual look, you can get your Peas USB Hub at the MoMA store for $32 (USD), in a variety of colors.
