Headphone Cables Get The MagSafe Treatment, Breakaway With The Pogo
I was cleaning the garage, rocking out to the new Soundgarden album, when I made a quick reach for a shovel hanging out by the doorway. In the process my headphones wrapped a loop around my mitre saw, and as I lunged, my newly unboxed iPhone crashed to the ground with a thud. Chipped chamfer. Stupid chamfer. Stupid headphones.
The Pogo aims to make the likelihood of iPhones crashing to the floor a lot less of a problem. The headphone connector will breakaway much like Apple’s MagSafe connector if there’s enough tension on the cable.
How the heck doesn’t this already exist.
How the heck does this work?
- Plug the Pogo into your phone.
- Plug your headphones into the Pogo
The Pogo includes four pins to transfer your audio, and a magnet strong enough to hold your device, but weak enough to breakaway should things get a little too tight on the line. You can even use the Pogo straight into your phone, or turn it on its side at a 90-degree angle in an L-shaped connection.
The device isn’t out on the market yet, and is currently only a concept. I need this … like 8 months ago.
