31-port USB hub — 12 is so yesterday


In response to yesterday's featured 12-port hub, Res Ipsa Loquitur (@mchangesq) tweeted "Try 31 ports. 2.0-compatible."

"Five USB HUB boards and +5V power supply unit are stacked up."

15 ports on one side,


16 on the other.


Aluminum chassis:


"Fill all 31 ports with USB devices! Cables look like spaghetti!"

Creator Sasaki Shunsuke gives directions and answers FAQ here, among them:

Q. I want this HUB! Do you make another one and sell it to me?

A. No. I Don't have enough time to make another one, and I don't want to sell off my one.

You can too!

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference 31-port USB hub — 12 is so yesterday:


Less than $50.00 for 23 ports (don't forget the one lost to daisy-chain) and less than $550 for the max (with the stick hubs) of 253 ports all hanging off of a single controller.

My days of building regulated power supplies and assembling this array from scratch are pretty well over.

I would mount all 12 USB bar-hubs neatly by using double-stick foam tape to form a nice block and would mount it in some nice panel where all of the power bricks, the assorted power strips and big ass UPS would be nicely concealed.

I hope that I never need the modern equivalent of an old telephone patch-board for USB devices!
