When using a MacBook Pro for use at home or work there is one issue that we can never seem to overcome, at that is all those unsightly wires if you connect your Pro up to a wired connection, power and also a separate display. Not only are these wires unsightly, but it’s also a pain having to keep connecting and disconnecting several wires each time.
However, help is at hand because there is a way to improve your MacBook Pro port organization for 2013, and that’s with a new device called the ZenDock. Before you get too excited, this is currently a Kickstarter project, but from what we can see it will not be long before these new MacBook Pro docks become available.
There is to be two versions, one for the standard Pro and the other for the Retina model. There are two parts to this product; one is a base, which can be placed out of sight beneath your desk where you can connect your USB devices, such as an external storage, monitor, speakers etc.
On the other end there is just a single wire, which connects to an aluminum box that just connects to several ports on the side of your Pro, allowing you to quickly plug all your devices in at once. You’ll see in the video below just how easy it is, as well as how the ZenDock tidies your desk up.
The ZenDock for the MacBook Pro requires $40,000 worth of funding by May 10. Two days in and the project has raised $32,000. The ZenDock is said to cost $179 once released, although we currently have no release window as yet.
Thanks to Kickstarter.
