Reversible USB Type-C connector finalized: Devices, cables, and adapters coming soon | ExtremeTech | Technology and Gadgets | Scoop.it
The USB Promoter Group has announced that the greatest invention in the known universe -- the reversible Type-C USB connector -- is finally ready for mass production. The USB Implementers Forum will now take the Type-C spec and start building devices, cables, and adapters that support the new reversible connector. We could begin seeing Type-C USB devices over the next few months, but it may take a little while for Type-C to reach critical mass.

Nicko Gibson's curator insight, August 12, 7:11 PM

No more getting the USB cable the wrong way 50% of the time or worse - if you need a flashlight to get to the back of the computer, like I do.

 

As the desktop world gets more wireless, the USB 3.1 might become the last cable to keep around the desk. Connecting your smart desk to your smart monitor, or something like that.

It is a power cable that can do 'extra stuff'.
