A USB hub for Barry Bonds?

Industrial designer Joel Escalona fashions an asterisk into a four-port USB hub.

Asterisk USB
Joel Escalona

I know what I'm getting Major League Baseball's all-time leading home run hitter for his birthday this year.

A big, fat asterisk.

I know, I know. I'm the most generous Dodgers' fan ever, right? Besides being eminently appropriate, and just plain awesome-looking, this asterisk is actually useful. Especially if Barry has, say, a MacBook Air.

This asterisk is a four-port USB hub created by industrial designer Joel Escalona. It's also bright red, and very sleek.

(Note: depending on where your sports loyalties lie, this gift can also work for Roger Clemens, Bill Belichick, or any member of the New England Patriots.)
