Ultra Supple Bus created by young maker Megacier is a project which aims at protecting a USB flash drive from external disruption. It is composed of a male port, a female port and a tension spring. The two ports are connected with wires which are protected by a tension spring. The receiver pieces were all made on a desktop 3D printer.
"The most difficult part is to choose the wire length: the system have to be able to move and meanwhile take as less space as possible." writes Megacier. The prototype costs only 5€ to make and it is fully functional.
It can be used on other ports (jacks, scart, VGA, etc) and be customized and embedded to computers.
