Were there any chance that this Boynq Swing 4-port USB hub actually worked like a Newton’s Cradle, it might make for a useful accessory to have on your desk for wasting away the hours at work. But once you connect any kind of cable to one of its hanging USB connections, you can pretty much forget about this thing providing any entertaining physics demonstrations. In fact, when it comes to USB hubs this thing actually takes up far more deskspace than it needs to, and besides a novel design, it really has nothing going for it, so I’m actually sorry for even bringing it up. (But if you must have one,’s got it for $16.99.)
