If like me you have plenty of USB cables charging different devices from Raspberry Pi devices and projects to your phone, you may be interested in the retro-styled USB hub Hella Switch. Offering a mechanical toggle switch USB control capable of switching on and off up to 6 different USB devices.
The USB hub with independent control switches is now available via Kickstarter and takes inspiration from cockpit controls providing a satisfying mechanical click when you turn on off your desired USB device. Early bird pledges are now available for the unique project from roughly $99 or £73 (depending on current exchange rates).
