Swiss Army USB Hub: Brando’S Rota-Rota Combo Hub

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 29, 2009


Brando, sellers of some of the weirdest stuff I have ever seen in my life, are cutting back on absurdity with their latest gadgets. For example, their USB hub is functional and versatile. But still a bit weird.

Brando calls it the “USB 3-in-1 Rota-Rota Combo Hub”. I think its named like that because each of the 3 USB ports can be turned up to 90°, but you never know with Brando. Also, I don’t see how having rotating USB ports is useful. Does it make it easier to remove a device that’s plugged into a port?

Aside from the rota-rota ports, the Rota-Rota is also a multi-card reader and can read SD, SDHC, Memory Stick Duo, MicroSD and M2 cards.

I’d like to think of Brando’s product development process as open-minded: “Sally at HR’s niece says she’s always wanted to have a USB hub with built-in thermometers. Let’s make her dream come true.”

But Brando will benefit from a bit of the old spell-checking and proofreading; I think mass-producing gadgets with unnecessary gauges labeled “Tempreture” makes your company look a tad unprofessional. But that’s just me.

You can buy the USB 3-in-1 Rota-Rota Hub at Brando’s shop for $15.50 USD. Tempreture gauges included.
