One of my first reviews for this site was the USB Beverage Chiller.  Here we have the opposite.  This USB hub and hotplate has 4 USB ports, a separate on and off switch for the hotplate, and a digital clock that runs off of a battery so its power is not computer dependent.  The heating plate will run at temps between 122 and 140°F and is perfect for hot drinks.  Being that it is a plate, you could harbor a burger or chicken fingers over it, or whatever else fits.  While most stand alone USB hubs are set behind or to the side of one’s computer, this hub has to be upfront for hot plate use and I’m not so sure about the tentacle locations of the USB ports.  No pricing set for retail at this moment.
