It's a given that we need USB hubs. There aren't enough USB ports on your computer to fit all of your gadgets and gizmos. USB hubs come in all shapes, sizes and colors, but ultimately people want something that works well and looks good. It's that simple. I've had a few hubs. They were all cheap looking affairs that didn't last long. That's why I really like Art Lebedev's new hub. It's looks really great and reminds me of Pink Floyd.
Spectrus is the latest of really nice and beautiful technological devices from Art Lebedev. The Pink-Floyd-looking USB hub is a really neat design. It's shaped and inspired from a prism, which is why there are so many neat colors on its side. The colors are painted on and they looks really good.
Spectrus has also got 7 USB ports and will fit quite nicely next to that new Mac on your desk. It's definitely something that you would keep at home and not travel around with, since it's somewhat bigger than your usual hub. All that's really left to find out is the price and its release date. Art Lebedev are really championing good looking devices that are simple as well. [via Ubergizmo, photos via Art Lebedev]
