Kudos to Royal College of Art graduate Min-Kyu Choi who, reports Anna Bates of iconeye magazine, came up with a plug design that is the same width as a MacBook Air. Have you come across it?
Min-Kyu’s solution is ridiculously elegant. Here it is:
And that’s it.
Isn’t it smart?
Simple. Elegant. It’s pure Apple and it’s just 10mm wide. Of course Min-Kyu has got a whole raft of other modifications including a USB charger and multi-plug support.
As Min-Kyu explains in this video, the UK’s massive 3-pin design is a real arse when it comes to taking devices (laptops in particular) mobile.
Here’s a video showing the plug in use:
I really would like to see one of these arrive with my next new handset.
