With 2 small magnets and a USB extension lead, we made a clever way to access our USB ports that's totally awesome to use.
We should add that this is our second attempt at cracking the problem. We were told by the shy folk on Instructables that the original solution was ugly ;) Thanks for pushing us guys, you made us think a bit harder about how to make this look good too. Without your comments and suggestions we would not have come up with this solution.
Credit to Criggie for suggesting that we use magnets, this turned out the be a fantastic idea and allowed us to make a very discreet USB cable that is incredibly intuitive and fun to use.
