POGO, The Breakaway Cable Adapter

How many times have I found myself on the row machine, just eating those meters, only to be derailed by a loosely hanging headphone cable, dragging my phone out of my pocket, tossing it across the floor as if Gorilla Glass really was unbreakable. It’s a terrible feeling. I’ve since switched to a bluetooth headset which makes me look kind like a douche in the gym but I digress. The POGO aims to solve this problem by using 4 pins to magnetically connect and breakaway upon stress. Designer Jon Patterson is currently looking for a partner to mass produce it.

    This should be a standard item on every headphone plug. Good work. I particularly like the on-its-side feature & rotation.

    Simple, useful; Kudos!

    Ah, quite a clever evolution of the mag-safe style connectors. Kinda makes you wonder why these aren’t on sale yet. GET ON IT.

    I’m curious about the pin-out interoperability when the connector’s pins are turned from 0 degrees.
