There’s no denying that iMac is a great machine, and comes with a solid hardware. All the ports, the USB slots, simply everything is not in the most desirable position.
In my case, the most problematic is the USB port placement, which can be a bit of hassle at times. I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks like this. If you also have the same opinion, you may want to give iMacompanion a look as it provides iMac users quick access to a USB port.
Certain USB devices, such as a printer or a hard drive, may always stay connected to your iMac. They can therefore be plugged into the rear ports of the iMac and left there without a problem. However, when you want to add files from your USB thumb, or transfer photos, or other day to day uses for a USB port – accessing them in the back can be a hassle! The iMacompanion solves that problem by giving you access to a front USB port while preserving the design of the iMac.
iMacompanion is made of sandblasted and anodized aluminum to seamlessly integrate itself at the foot of the iMac. You can plug it into a USB port on your iMac, and the front end of it can be attached to the base of the iMac, providing users with quick access to a USB port. The wires are too thin, and are hidden under the base.
The project is seeking funds on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter before they can enter mass production. The project is looking for $9,999 and have already raised almost $11,000 with 29 more days to go before the project ends. Once completed, the accessory is expected to hit retail with a price tag of $39, which sounds pretty reasonable considering the convenience it brings for iMac users.
If you think this is something useful, head over to Kickstarted and pledge for the project. Early birds are expected to get their units by July 2014. Take a look at the video below to know more about this useful product.
