Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 15th, 2009

USB Solar Charging 4-Port HubHere’s a unique 4-port USB hub with the ability to juice up almost any compatible USB device. It even comes with a whole bunch of USB connectors to handle virtually anything you throw at it. Having a solar powered USB hub is awesome because you won’t add a single cent to your power bill thanks to that solar panel in the middle.

On cloudy days you can always hook it up to your car’s cigarette lighter outlet as an alternative power source. Only $20 and it’s a useful device. It’s like the K3 generator, without a windmill.

WWF Penguin USB Flash DriveIf only the legs moved. Then this USB Penguin flash drive would be truly hilarious. Sadly, they do not. So, while the Penguin has landed head first in your USB port, presumably with cartoon sound effects, it’s legs aren’t moving. Failed comedy opportunity.

The WWF Penguin USB flash drive will come in varying capacities of up to 16GB. Each purchase will see 5% of the proceeds being donated to the WWF. The 8GB configuration is going for $26 currently.

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2009

USB Microwave Oven is the smallest in the worldFrom American food company Heinz comes this Beanzawave portable microwave. It’s the world’s smallest, portable microwave oven, measuring 7.4 inches tall x 6.2 inches wide x 5.9 inches. It’s only a prototype at the moment.

The price would be around $160 if Heinz ever decides to make this USB microwave oven, so you can have your beans anywhere.(What were they thinking with that name?) It would be convenient for those on the road since it can be powered it by a laptop.

49-port USB hub

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on May 29th, 2009

49-port USB hubMost computers only have about 2 to 4 USB ports, even the best motherboards only offer 10 or 15 USB ports. But let’s face it, you need more. You have your flash drives, your USB toys, USB Christmas lights, drink coolers etc. You NEED more ports in a USB hub.

This baby has 49. That’s right 49. You’ll never be without a USB port again unless you have way too many USB gadgets. Like say, 50. It’s actually meant for a more professional environment, like say, getting input from 49 different cameras simultaneously and the like. But you can have one too. It’s powered from a standard ATX power supply.

Potato / Deformed brain USB Hub

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on May 26th, 2009

Potato / Deformed brain USB HubYou say potato I say pot-a-to. I think we can both agree that this thing looks more like a deformed mutant brain than a potato any day. Seriously, would you buy a potato that looked like this one? Me either. Anyway, if you like your USB hubs on the disturbingly weird side, this is for you, ya damn freak.

It’s a 4-port USB 2.0 compliant hub that is what it is. The USB Potato 4-Port Hub will cost you $16 from Brando. Not Marlon Brando, the gadget site. I know I’ve seen this thing it several B movies, but I just can’t place it.

Transformer USB hub turns into a NetbookWe’ve seen several USB transformers lately. There must be a movie coming out or something. There’s the transforming mouse, the Ravage USB drive, and now we have this $42 import that features a cassette deck, similar to Soundwave.

This guy can transform into a netbook. And whether you dig “Qosmio” netbooks or not, it’s a cool 4-port USB hub. So you can now have a small army of USB transformers.

Lego USB hubs are stackable

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on May 13th, 2009

Lego USB hubs are stackableWe’ve seen our share of Lego USB drives, but these new Lego USB hubs are actually stackable, therefore totally awesome.

Each Lego USB Hub comes with four USB ports, and in a variety of colors that include red, blue, yellow and black. Sadly, they aren’t an official Lego product and so are only available in Korea for about $12 each. That’s a shame. I really wanted to build an entire Lego wall using these and go for the coveted Guinness world record of “Most hubs in a single wall, made by some lonely dork”.

Well, now you can see her all you like on this Virgin Mary flash drive. Every bit of data that goes on this drive does so not via the USB connection, but through immaculate data conception.

Hey, it’s Mother’s Day, so why not celebrate Jesus’s Mom in flash drive form. She’s safely encased in plexiglass to protect her while she watches over your data.

USB 7 Port HUB switch for dual PC usageElecom of Japan has just introduced a few USB switches that will come with a 2- and 7-port USB hub. It allows you to share anywhere from two to seven USB-connected devices over a couple of computers without installing a private network.

Perfect if you and your wife want to share or for room mate situations, though you most likely would still want to set up a private network as their are more benefits. It’s a nice option to have though.

It’s kind of a useless device really. Your screen should be bright enough to light up the keyboard if it’s not lit already. But if you have a dim screen, you’ll be happy to know that it’s only $9 or 3 for $20 and comes in a variety of fruity colors.
