Newton’s Cradle USB Hub

newtons cradle usb hubThe Newton’s Cradle USB hub is a fun twist on that traditional office gift of Newton’s Cradle.  Rather than stainless steel balls however, this one uses USB connectors to make up a 4 port USB hub.

Albeit a bulky device for a USB hub it would create some interest from the folks around the office.  Clearly it would observe the law of conservation of momentum, but none-the-less a great conversation piece….for about 20 seconds.

The Newton’s Cradle USB hub is available from Buy.com but is currently sold out.  They are still booking orders.

Super 16 Port’er USB Hub

I don’t have USB connectivity issues, but I believe many do.  The super 16 port USB hub will help in those situations.  The plethora of ports will give any computer uber-geek the ability to connect just about everything in his office to a single computer.  But even then, the uber-geek has the ability to split up those 16 ports to be shared with two computers…thus spreading the geekness all around.

The super 16 port USB hub has a switch for setting ports to computer A or B.  Or you can simply keep all 16 ports designated to a single computer.  Connect your printer, several cameras, web-cam, your handful of USB drives, USB fan, another USB fan if you overheat easily, maybe a USB mask, or USB wrist pad, and of course a USB aroma drive.  I think you get the picture.

The super hub comes in at $140.  Fully supports the USB 2.0 specification and has a designated power line to insure optimal performance to all those USB powered gadgets.

The Apacer PH151 uses a miniUSB connection to the host computer [via cable] and then provides two vertical ports and two horizontal ports.  To me, once you’ve put a cable to the hub, it doesn’t matter what shape it’s in.  Just stick your device in and go.  The clear advantage with this design, is increasing

String Theory Applied to USB Hub

USB Fever is thinking outside the box on this one.  Going away from standard box USB hubs, this hub is all cable.  To continue along the lines of abstract thinking USB Fever includes a separate power cable to extract juice from the system bus solely for the purpose of powering up those peripherals.
