As laptops grow thinner, USB ports become scarcer. This means that if you need to connect to many printers, phones, or a mouse, you need to carry around a multiport hub to plug in various devices. But Jiange has created a USB plug that is based on a daisy chain, allowing you to plug multiple devices into one USB port. It recently launched its product via a very successful Kickstarter campaign.
The design won an IF Concept Award from one of the most prestigious design competitions in the world. Jiange has a lot more design inventions underway. InfiniteUSB cables start at $10, and will also come in varieties that support microUSB and Lightning connectors. http://getinfiniteusb.com/
