At CES 2014, Nano Magnetics will announce Nanoport, a magnetic connector it says will be useful for adding a new type of connection to electronic devices and appliances.
A major revamp of the ports and cables of the ubiquitous connection technology will make USB connectors reversible, slimmer, and better at transmitting data and power.
The technology lets users plug an iPhone into a dock with the Lightning connector and not worry about how much force or torque they place on it to remove the device.
The company's Lightning connector is already reversible on the eight-pin dock side, but Apple might start offering a reversible connector on the other end as well.
Buried within this Kickstarter campaign is the product iPhone users really want: a MagSafe-style charging cable.
