LaCie Huby USB hub

USB hubs are frequently utilitarian; not so the new LaCie Huby, which has an orb-like design created by the Ora-Ito studio. The top half is normally removed, revealing eight LED lights for each of the cables that can be connected. If space is at a premium though, it can be attached again to thread all the cables together. The Huby adds four USB 2.0 ports and two FireWire 400 ports. It ships with eight connection cables, a USB fan, a USB light, and two extension cords. LaCie is selling the hub for $79.
