Eidetic USB / USB

Eidetic USB
Eidetic USB

With a slight modification to a common shape, Eidetic USB makes the process of plugging in a USB flash drive a lot more intuitive.

It’s common for the users of USB flash drives to attempt to insert the stick upside down. The correct orientation of the stick for the receptacle body is not visually apparent with a quick glance. Without altering their function, the Eidetic USB alters the shape of the USB port and stick so the correct orientation is more obvious.
