We’re sure many of you guys have experienced getting your earphone cables caught on something, like the edge of the table, the door handle, and etc., and the result is either the cables getting yanked out violently from your device, or it could pull the device from your pocket or hands and make it crash to the floor. However wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to connect our earphones to our media devices without worrying about that? Something like Apple’s MagSafe adapter where it would disconnect without causing the device to crash to the floor? Well that’s what the Pogo concept aims to achieve.
According to the Pogo’s description, “Using a neodymium magnet and 4 “pogo” pins, a strong connection is made between the two pieces, passing the signal through. The end result is a product that is universally useful, and innovates a technology that hasn’t changed much since its inception in the 60′s.” Essentially it would be similar to the MagSafe adapter in which the cable would disconnect if too much force is applied on it, but at the same time strong enough so that it will not disconnect too easily. Unfortunately the Pogo is a concept meaning that there’s no telling if and when it would be made a reality, but in the meantime you can check it out in the video above.
