With magnetic connectors, cords and plugs will become things of the past

Tim Szeto's product is a system for connecting devices called NanoPort. "It's like MagSafe meets USB," he explains, which about sums it up. Instead of plugging a USB connector into a socket, his system enables users to simply snap two flat edges together to form a magnetic seal. When they do, not only do the devices stick together, but they can share both power and data. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/small-business/starting-out/with-magnetic-connectors-cords-and-plugs-will-become-a-thing-of-the-past/article21841577/
