USB Centipede: Simple Redesign Allows 1 Port, Lots of Plugs

With more and more of our devices being powered and/or charged via USB these days, we often find ourselves with a lack of available USB ports. Carrying around a bulky USB hub with your laptop is not always a viable option, which is where the Infinite USB design would come in handy. It is a conceptual redesign of the humble USB plug that would allow you to plug tons of cables into a single USB outlet.
The design is quite simple: each plug has an additional port in its back, allowing you to “piggyback” cable after cable – kind of like a far less gross USB version of The Human Centipede. Of course, there would have to be a limit to how many USB cables you can stack in a single outlet. But the color-coded motifs would at least let you keep track of all of those gadgets you’ve got plugged in at any given moment.
