The Cube-Works Self-Destruct USB 3.0 Hub takes a different approach to the 2017 phenomenon of pressing buttons and flipping switches to make yourself feel better. Rather than slapping said buttons and switches on a fidget toy, this stress reliever and anger management tool places them on top of a functional, 4-port USB hub. So you can charge your phone and hook up your coffee warmer at your desktop, and then, when you forget to Ctrl+S before a program freeze...
Turn! Switch! Press! Activate self-destruct!
And make yourself feel all better.
Or at least better than you did before.
While no explosion or spontaneous combustion will really follow Cube-Works "activation," ThinkGeek has built self-destruct lights and sounds into the USB hub that will go off in accordance with your proper tactile manipulation of its baubles.
Yes, proper. Cube-Works has one more geekgasmic trick in its box. To achieve full effect, you'll need to turn the toggle switches and key in numeric order to their ON positions. This will turn on the main light, at which point you can open the clear cover, and press the big red button to cue the destructions sounds. Complete the steps out of order, or screw them up, and you'll get nothing! Except even madder and more stressed than you were before.
