Doctor Who Tardis USB Hub

Posted in USB by Reuben Drake on July 21st, 2011

Doctor Who fans will love this USB hub. It features a flashing lantern on top and Tardis sound effects. You may not find the Doctor and his companion inside, but it will prove very useful sitting on your desk.

It will cost you about £23. Hopefully it won’t suddenly de-materialize and go on it’s own adventure, but if it does I’m sure it will be back soon. After all, Earth seems to be home base for the Doctor these days.

Posted in USB 3.0 by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2010

Elecom 10-Port USB hub

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on July 22nd, 2009

Elecom 10-Port USB hubChances are your laptop only came with three or four USB 2.0 ports. You probably have more USB toys than ports. You could always opt for an octopus USB Hub or a Star Wars droid USB hub, but If you want something a little more conservative, with even more ports, this one is for you.

The U2H-Z10S 10-port USB hub from Elecom. The slim USB hub even comes with a magnet so you can place it almost anywhere out of your way. You can pre-order the Elecom 10-port USB hub for 9,500 Yen or $101. Whichever you have. It’s all good.

R2-Q5 USB hub

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 16th, 2009

R2-Q5 USB hubSure, the obvious choice would be to buy an R2-D2 USB hub, but this guy is cool because he has that dark side look. Serious nerds know who he is already, despite the fact that R2-Q5 was only in the movie for like 2 seconds.

To the rest of you, all you need to know is that R2 was painted black and given a new name so that George Lucas could keep himself in flannel for another million years while he writes scripts in his crypt and while wearing pajamas and hugging a Jar Jar plush toy.

Octopus USB Hub

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on July 3rd, 2009

Octopus USB HubChances are you’ve got more USB toys than you have ports. So when it comes to a USB hub, an octopus makes perfect sense. Octopi have eight arms. That’s an awesome amount of gadgets to be able to plug into it. But wait.

This is no Octopus. It only has four arms, giving you four USB ports, not eight. What gives? This is only half an octopus. More of a quadropus really. With googly eyes. At least the tentacles are long.

Artillery USB Hub

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2009

Artillery USB HubThis cannon-shaped USB hub features three ports that trigger an artillery sound effect when a device is plugged in. Pretty cool, but don’t think you are going to win any USB wars with this one. It only supports USB 1.1.

Neat as it is, despite being USB 1.1, it needs to actually fire something and not just look like an old cannon. What would be cool is if it actually held a small USB drive that it could jettison out when you are done with it. If the kids are still saying FAIL this week, I suggest you say it to the Artillery USB Hub. It’s certainly not full of win.
