Interconnectivity reaches new heights as Gizmodo shows an outboard USB hub with 31 outlets. Imagine the possibilities:

  1. Using your laptop to run coffee-warmers for a state banquet at the White House!
  2. Running enough gooseneck fans to divert a hurricane!
  3. Clustering a bunch of these USB powered manicure buffers and drilling a tunnel under Lake Michigan!

I'm sure you-all can come up with others.
