Brando USB Twister Hub
Almost every computer owner with an external USB hub is likely to know the difficulty of connecting devices without blocking other ports or tangling cables. Online importer Brando has devised a simple solution in the USB Twister Hub. The first two ports can rotate 180 degrees, clearing room for large devices or cables that might run in separate directions. Brando adds that the hub can be powered by an optional AC adapter for printers and other devices that typically require a direct connection to the host computer. The Rubik's Cube-inspired hub works with both Macs and Windows PCs and can be imported through Brando for $26 with the AC adapter ($22 without).
