The Fallout-inspired charging hub is for the vault dweller that has a lot of gadgets but wants a taste of the wasteland world outside. It’s a very cool replica of a suit of power armor from the game, just much tinier and lighter.
David Wrobel designed a desk for gadget freaks, gamers and other heavy computer users. The Paradise Desk is filled with ports, power plugs and other convenient features that solve several annoyances associated with using computers or gadgets.
I just got a cool new laptop yesterday, and as much as I love how insanely thin and lightweight the thing is, I do find that its two USB ports aren’t enough. While there are plenty of add-on USB hubs out there, I have to say that I particularly like the playful and minimal style of the Lonely City USB hub.
I always wondered what it must have been like for Han Solo when he was frozen in that block of carbonite by Jabba the Hutt. We know that he was cold and blind when he came out of it, but did he dream when inside of it?
I’m sure you have a thousand and one flash drives by now, but as far as gimmicks go, you don’t see USB hubs with matching flash drives that often. Too bad this toaster USB hub doesn’t pop the flash drives out when they’re ejected.
The flash drives come in four variants, including one that seems to have been burnt to a crisp already:
The toaster also has an SD Card reader built-in.
When it comes to computer accessories, we know that Satechi can swing the polar opposites of practicality. They have something that’s more useful than the average human being, and then there’s this. But the company also has a third offering: products that look pretty.
We all have plenty of USB gadgets that we use on a daily basis and it seems that we always need more ports. My kingdom for a port! Without enough ports we are always plugging and unplugging things from our computers.
Took us long enough to get here. A week ago we saw a concept for a USB connector designed to make it easier to recognize the right side of a USB cord. That’s a good idea, but Buffalo’s solution is way better.
For those of you who don’t keep up on your mythology, Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure and procreation. In other words, she’s a sex goddess. She is also – thanks to the miracles of modern technology – a desktop USB hub.
A couple of years back, I found these USB flash drives which looked like miniature submarines. I always thought they looked pretty cool, but I think they never got past the concept stage. But you can still live out desktop reenactments of Das Boot or The Hunt for Red October with this submarine-inspired USB hub.
While I’m sure that the iMac is a great computer for many users, there’s just something that irks me about a desktop that’s made out of laptop parts. That being said, they still look pretty good, and have decent specs.
Apple’s laptops are slim and sexy, but their svelte figures come at a price, and I’m not just talking about how much they cost. Not only do they have too few USB ports – all of Apple’s laptops only have two USB ports, except for the 17″ MacBook Pro, which has three – the ports are also placed very near to each other, making it very easy to block one while using the other.
