Here at Cult of Mac, we love the crowd-sourced, gadget-creating think tank at Quirky.com, and their latest is a fantastic answer to the tangle of USB cables snaking out of the back of your iMac.
Quirky’s solution? A USB hub called the Controt. Essentially, it’s four USB ports drilled into a reel around which stray cables can be wound, keeping everything dangle free (with a little bit of help from four cut-out anchor points).
On the other end of the Contort is a bendy, snaking, extendable USB plug, which connects the hub to your iMac or MacBook.
It’s a gorgeous looking hub that perfectly suits the Mac aesthetic. Like Quirky’s other products, though, you can’t just buy one: instead, you need to pay $30 to pre-order one, and only when enough people have made an order will Quirky actually, you know, make the thing.
