It is said that no matter your age or sex, there is one commonality among all humans – the fascination in all things robotic. From olden days of yore, songs have been written about robots, our mechanical selves have been invented to help us go through life easier and not to mention the popularity of movies like The Terminator and I, Robot. All these things make the Mr Roboto USB Hub extremely marketable. This is the USB gadget of the future and of course it helps greatly that it is extremely adorable.
Colour wise, I love the baby blue that mine came in. Still, you can opt for other far out colours including neon pink, green and yellow. The sky is the limit where Mr Roboto is concerned and you should certainly take advantage of this! Mr Roboto’s chest and back portion opens up to reveal USB ports which you can then use to connect your device.
One main attraction of this USB Hub is that it multi functions as a windup toy as well. Simply wind him up and watch him walk away. Be cautioned though – this is extremely addictive and probably not a good idea to do in the office else you might end up with a mini Mr Roboto race with your colleagues. It would be fun for you but not so for your watching boss!
The best part of the deal is that Mr Roboto can be yours for only $14. Now, who said that you can’t get functional things at good bargains?
