A USB connector that works both ways
Don’t you hate it when you try to insert a USB connector in an USB port and it doesn’t fit that way. So you turn it over, only to find out you held it the right way the first time, but you just didn’t push hard enough.This might be history, since designer Ma Yi Xuan designed USB connector that fits both ways.
In order to provide connection both ways the Double USB has two retractable connection layers. When inserted one layer retracts back into the plastic housing of the connector and the other layer stays in place to provide the data connection.
The design is still a concept at the moment but hopefully it won’t take too long to find its way into production.
