Huawei Orb USB Modem

Orb is a wireless mobile hotspot and modem, used to set up a local WiFi environment. It plugs into any notebook computer, allowing up to five portable devices like phones to join into your notebook’s fast WiFi connection. The flush protected USB connector folds down to plug in, and then the unit can rotate up to 180 degrees to provide the best signal. The unit can fold down when the notebook is closed. Most USB devices are uninteresting little necessities, but we wanted this one to be special. Its pure geometric form, exquisite materials and clever rotating configuration offer a new take on the category while also providing ease of use and pride of ownership.
