For anyone who has ever lamented those clunky USB hubs, there might be a far more elegant solution around the corner.
Thanks to clever design student Jiang Gonglue, we might not be too far off from seeing something like this ‘Infinite USB’ connector, which allows an unlimited* number of devices to plug into one USB port.
The connectors would wisely be color-coded, allowing you to distinguish between your devices. In addition, to combat the inevitable power issues that come with attaching multiple devices to a computer Jiang has also theorized an external power adaptor that would also feature the unique ‘infinite USB’ head.
