This is quite possibly the strangest looking apparatus that I’ve seen in quite some time.
The LaCie Huby is a truly odd looking USB and Firewire hub that emphasizes the cables on your desktop, rather than hiding them away. The bulb-shaped device provides you with an additional 4 USB ports and 2 Firewire ports at the end of its LED illuminated cables. The Huby also has USB-powered light and fan attachments in its arsenal of gadgets.
For those of you who find this kind of design appealing rather than appalling, you can pick one up at the end of December for $79.99 USD.
