Anyone considering purchasing the new Apple MacBook that was unveiled earlier this year and is now available to order, but is a little concerned that one single USB-C port might not be enough.
May be interested in a new 11 port USB-C Dock created by KickShark called the ￼Hydradock, that might be worth more investigation. Watch the promotional video below to learn more.
HydraDock ends that whole line of thinking by giving you ports for anything you may want or need – from displays and networking, to storage and printers and cameras, to keyboards, mice, and trackpads, and more. 11 normal ports – not just one. HydraDock is named after the multi-headed mythological serpent, and expands the single USB-C port on the MacBook into an array of eleven useful ports, including:
1 x 3.5mm stereo headphone port
1 x Gigabit Ethernet port
1 x SDXC card slot
1 x Mini DisplayPort (up to 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, w/HDCP)
1 x HDMI (up to 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, w/HDCP)
4 x USB 3.0 ports
2 x USB-C ports (data only, no video)
The HydraDock project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $35,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
So if you think HydraDock is something your new Apple MacBook could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help the 11 port USB-C Dock become a reality.
