First Look – Lacie USB Hub

Saw this on Popgadget, the newest USB Hub from Lacie, who is famous with their designs with computer peripherals.  The Lego Brick and the Porsche design disk drives are just a few cool ones. 

According to Popgadget, “This one is a good example of how a geeky, boring device can be turned into something cool and desirable. All it required was computer storage firm LaCie and French designer Ora Ito to join hands to redefine the design of the ubiquitous USB hub. The octopus-like LaCie USB & FireWire Hub will surely make heads turn when it’s released in early 2007. Done up completely in pristine white, it sprouts eight flexible cables – 4 USB 2.0 cables, 2 FireWire 400 cables, a USB light and a USB fan. The hub features eight glowing LEDs that light up in different colors to show which connection is currently active.

Compatible with both the PC and Mac, this one surely tops my shopping list for next year. Available on pre-order for US$79.99.”
