MagSafe power connector concept is well known to owners of Apple laptops. This interface is magnetic, that is, if a user accidentally touches a wire or forget about it, taking a laptop in hand, detachable cable without causing mechanical damage.
Created by designer Jon Patterson concept headphone jack Pogo works on the principle MagSafe. Its peculiarity lies in the fact that the connection is held in place one magnet, so if someone accidentally hits the cord iPhone or iPad, a detachable cable from the device. This reduces the risk of falling and damage.
Pogo kit consists of two parts: a 3.5-mm plug to the pad, which is inserted into the player or smart phone, and a connector for headphones, speakers and other peripherals. These components are connected to each other through a magnetic field. To disconnect the two parts, sufficiently small force.
It is said the designer, the application of magnetic connectors will increase the usability iPhone, iPad and other mobile devices, and can better protect the interface connector from moisture or accidental spills.
It is worth noting that in the beginning, Apple was granted a patent for “smart” MagSafe connectors for iOS-devices. According to this document, the company wants to use the universal magnetic connectors for power supply and data exchange on phones, iPods and tablets. Therefore, the ability of the Pogo as a mass product remains a big question.
