LaCie Unveils Firewire And USB Hub Designed By Ora-Ito
LaCie unveiled a stylish hub designed exclusively for LaCie by Ora-Ito. The LaCie Huby (pronounced hub-ee) includes two FireWire and four USB ports. Its round shape, glossy white polycarbonate finish and flexible cables give it a distinctive, modern look.
LaCie Huby works with Mac OS, Windows and Linux, allowing users to connect up to six devices simultaneously. It comes fully equipped with eight flexible, twistable cables to instantly connect external storage devices, printers, media readers, keyboards, mice and more. Eight glowing LEDs indicate when a device is plugged in, with a different color for each port: white, violet, green, red, yellow, orange, blue and pink. Additional LaCie Hubys can be daisy-chained via FireWire or USB for extra connectivity options. LaCie Huby also ships with a USB fan and small USB light.
LaCie Huby is available for pre-order online and available via LaCie’s specialized dealer network later this month at the suggested retail price of $79. It comes with eight flexible cables (five USB 2.0 and three FireWire 400), a USB extension cable, a FireWire 400 extension cable, and a fan and light that can be plugged in to the ports.
And some information about the designer. Though his name implies a Japanese background, designer Ora-Ito is French. A do-it-all designer, he was barely 20 years old when he created the very first virtual brand in 1998. Propelled to the front of the international scene, he then started prestigious collaborations with L’Oreal, Vogue Magazine, Heineken, Adidas, Kenzo, electronic musicians AIR, Honda, Guerlain, Swatch and Nike.
