Cool Stuff: Allspark Cube USB Hub

According to wikipedia, the Allspark Cube is a "cubic artifact adorned with glyphs and designs, and is capable of granting independent life to normal electronic and mechanical objects, and the source of life for all Transformers." "The Autobots and the Decepticons seek the All Spark for their own purpose. The Autobots want the All Spark to rebuild Cybertron and end the war, while the Decepticons want the All Spark to defeat the Autobots and conquer the universe."

Basically, the allspark cube is the source of tremendous power, which you can now harness to power your USB devices. Yes, that's right folks, Forbidden Planet is selling an Allspark Cube 4 Socket USB hub. The faithful scaled replica even speaks Allspark phrases as they engage – "We must protect the All Spark Cube" etc. The product will be released in late August 2008, but you can preorder now on Forbidden Planet for 17.99 pounds (almost $30 American).
