Who said practicality and prettiness can't go together? The USB tulip hub by Fred Flare shows that one doesn't negate the other.

The design features four USB ports shaped like tulips in red or orange. The unit plugs into your computer easily and makes your office just a bit homier.

Gotta love flowers you can't kill!

Implications - Function and beauty are two qualities that consumers place a lot of stock in, and the companies that realize this are the ones who stand to make the most of emerging technology advancements. Even combining two disparate concepts like flowers and USB keys holds promise, and that is something to take encouragement from regardless of your industry.
