CES 2007: LaCie Hub, Alien Flower USB Hub
LaCie announced, among other things, a peculiar, albeit original USB hub, called simply, Hub. (Hot, we know.) Hub is in the shape of a bomb from Mario 64, used as a flower pot. Each of the flowers (yes, the flower cutouts are included) are a USB 2.0 or FireWire port (4 USB, 2 FireWire). The Hub comes with a USB light and fan, so you can make some use of it (and perhaps give it some purpose) right out of the box.
This is definitely marketed towards perhaps the college-girl-in-a-dorm demo, but a lot of folks might find it brings an organic, other-worldly touch to their desks. $79.99 and available for pre-order, set to ship later this month.
