The Only Hub You’ll Ever Need: 28-Port USB Hub

28Port USB

 

Most laptops come with at least two USB ports on average. Some come built with as much as four. But if you transfer files from one external drive to another while printing stuff and adding songs to your iPod on the side, then you’ve got no more port left for hooking your camera or tablet or whatever else up. Not that you should be doing all of these things at once, but if you do, then you might want to get one of these 28-port USB hubs.

It looks like a power strip, only instead of sockets, it’s line with USB hubs instead. As the name implies, it can accommodate up to 28 connections, from flash drives and cables to connect your camera, phone, and MP3 players with your computer.

The 28-port USB hub is available online for about $62.

Thanko’s USB-Powered Shoe Cooler

USB-Exhilarating-Shoes-Cooler_2

If you don’t mind looking a little strange, Thanko Japan has a fun little gadget that could help you keep your feet a couple of degrees cooler than your surroundings. It’s a USB-powered clip-on fan that directs air straight onto your feet, dropping their temperature by a reported 3 degrees Celcius. Yes, that does mean that on top of having to attach a strange looking plastic doodad to your shoes, you have to tether them to a USB port. You’ll be the talk of the office, that much is clear, but at least it won’t be because of how smelly your feet are. If you don’t mind the indignity, it’s 3,480 Japanese Yen (US $34) to own.

The Ninja Star USB isn’t exactly the most discrete flash drive on the market, but it’s definitely one of the most attractive ones out there. As you can see, it’s shaped like a shuriken, the weapon of choice of stealthy ninjas, and while it’s not as sharp as its namesake, it can hold 8 gigabytes worth of data, be it documents, pictures, music, or movie files.

The Ninja Star USB can’t fight deadly computer viruses on its own, but it shuriken keep your data safe as long as you keep it safe. (Pun intended–sorry, I couldn’t resist!) It’s available online for $15.50.
