It often takes two or three attempts to hook up USB connectors to computers because of their intuitive-less design; the Eidetic USB eliminates that struggle with a simple tweak. It addresses the fact that traditional USB heads have no indicator to tell people if it's being held in the right position. The Eidetic USB, on the other hand, does. It has a ridge on the top that shows it should be held a specific way up.

Designed by Lim Jae Min, the Eidetic USB is a red dot design concept award winning entry. It takes away the frustation of blindly trying to jam in connectors to the sides or backs of computer monitors, potentially damaging both the USB and its port.
