LaCie Huby - Stylish New USB and Firewire Hub

Here's another non-pink gadget news that must be told to the whole wide world. Lo and behold, LaCie have released a very stylish looking USB and Firewire hub called the ‘Huby’ (pronounced as ‘hub-ee’). Huby’s round shape, glossy white polycarbonate finish, and flexible cables give it a distinctive, modern look. It's a no wonder that Huby is designed exclusively for LaCie by Ora-Ïto, an established and well known designer.

ITWire mentioned that the "Huby looks like a futuristic digital vase with cables protruding out of the top half. When connected together, it looks like the image above, but as you can see from the image below it comes in pieces, with the hub itself, a then the half-sphere top half through which the different cables emerge."

"Huby comes with a USB fan, USB light, USB extension cable and a Firewire 400 extension cable, with the extension cables designed to make it easier to connect hard drives, printers, keyboards, scanners and more. But smaller devices like USB Flash drives, Bluetooth adapters or small mp3 players like the original iPod Shuffle can conceivably just plug straight in and appear as the digital equivalent of flowers."

"Each port has its own glowing LED to indicate when a device is plugged in, with a different 8 colours in total: white, violet, green, red, yellow, orange, blue and pink. You can also daisy-chain additional LaCie Hubys via FireWire or USB for extra connectivity options."

According to LaCie, you can add 4 USB ports and 2 FireWire ports to your computer system and connect up to six devices simultaneously.

This stylish USB and Firewire Hub can be used on either PC or Mac.
The Huby retails at $79.99.
