InfiniteUSB Aims to Simplify Ports
InfiniteUSB wants to revolutionize cable usage with computers. The unique and smart design of the connecters the company plans to sell are inherently different from most other cables as they allow for a chaining of the connecters to just one port. Each USB cable has a USB port on the connecter itself, allowing for another device to be connected using the same port, and the design is sleek and minimalist. There are a range of bright color options, and they come with female USB, Lightning, and USB-C connection options.
Beyond just regular USB connection, InfiniteUSB has considered new port alternatives. There has been much controversy regarding new ports and minimalism, particularly with the recent introduction of the USB Type C, a port introduced on the MacBook and Chromebook Pixel, with the connector expected to appear on future products as well. Although these ports allow for a variety of devices that they support, seeing as the MacBook and Pixel include only one and two ports respectively, adapters will more than likely need to be purchased to charge while simultaneously connecting multiple devices.
The ability of InfiniteUSB to chain together cables for charging phones, connecting hard drives, and a range of other options all to a single port, has already propelled the project to funding success. The original goal was $10,000, yet backers have contributed a total of $220,009 with only forty hours left to go, perhaps showing how much of a need these products are filling. The cables offered to backers start at just $10, and the timeline suggests they will be shipped and available to the public in June.
