Infinite USB Plug – Good On Paper But Will Never Work

Here is another USB prototype design and it’s called the Infinite USB Plug.  The pictures look great and the concept is clever, however it just doesn’t work.  Never will.

Designed by Gonglue Jiang, the Infinite USB Plug allows you to keep adding your peripherals without the need USB hubs or hot swapping your devices on USB ports when needed. The color coding on plugs will make it easy to identify which plug belongs to which device. The problem is the way USB typology works.  When connecting multiple devices via USB you cannot daisy-chain them.  You cannot piggy back them, it must be in a logical pyramid typology.  Which means, this concept requires a hub.

What I would like to learn a bit more about is the paper thin laptop used in image #2 [above].  Would that be cool.  Looks thinner than the upcoming Apple iPad. Source:  Techfresh.
