Accessories aren't usually able to grab our interest unless they really
do something that hasn't been done before, but the new Cable Caps
definitely have our eyes. Considering just how many USB peripherals we
encounter on a daily basis, there's something special here that really
connects to our daily experiences. These community developed covers
help to protect, organize and add style to your every day USB cords.
Put simply, they are designed to "help you protect the male end of any
cable when not in use."
These also help to put varying faces on different cables, and if you're
memory is sharp, you'll be able to associate a cable head with a
purpose. The top portion of each Cable Cap is a funky, unique character
with a built in slot to receive a standard size USB cable. Below the
head, is a body section that acts as a stretchable band to tie up the
remaining USB cable slack. When wrapped, the cable is tightly secured
in place. When you need the cable, simply unwrap, pop off the
appropriate cap and plug the USB into your computer.
Of course, the "cute" look of these make them perfect for gifts, and
they're currently being sold in sets of three for $7.99 each.
With Cable Caps covering and wrapping your USB cables, you will no
longer be fumbling around with excess, unidentified, knotted USB
cables. There are six different Cable Cap characters for you to
collect: Printer Man, Phone Dude, Camera Gal. Eye Baller, Egg Man and
'Da Bulb. They are sold in sets of three for for $7.99/set.
