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.

This is an open source project, so if you want to make your own, check out this link or download source file here on Thingiverse.
