Show off your wealth with the gold-ingot-styled USB hub


Could anything look as flash – and at the same time tacky – as this gold ingot-styled USB port from Thanko?

Yes, impress your friends (and start rumours that your numbers have come up on the lottery) with this eight-port hub. Obviously, it’s not real gold, but it’s not a bad copy – and just to add weight (so to speak) to its legitimacy, the manufacturers have piled in some other metal to give it a gold-like weight of 2.4kg. Pretty hefty for something sized at just 19.6 x 7.3 x 4.9cm.

And as it’s not gold, it hasn’t got a gold-like price. It’s available to the Japanese market next month for the equivalent of £27.
