USB hubs can be incredibly useful, but there’s no reason why utility cannot combine cool design.
So how about getting a USB hub in the shape of one of Star Wars’ most lovable characters R2D2?
Not only does the R2D2 USB hub pack a 4 way USB hub, but it also comes with its own set of robot like sound effects.
So not only do you get the useful USB kit hooked up easily, but you also get geek points (or something) for your desk.
I’m almost tempted to get one, though I know it wouldn’t get much use except as a paperweight..
The hub measures 15cm high, so it’s not that big, but still pretty cool (click to enlarge):
