If you’re reading this on the newest MacBook, you might have noticed that there’s only one USB-C port on the entire device. Seeking to solve this problem, the designers at Palo Alto based tech company NONDA came up with HUB+: a USB hub with a serious upgrade. The portable device has 2 USB-C ports, an SDX card reader, a mini DisplayPort, 3 USB-A charging ports, and a built in lithium ion battery so it can charge any phone. Although it has many more functions than the typical USB hub, the slim and sleek aluminum alloy body of the HUB+ is extremely lightweight and small enough to fit in your pocket. The gadget is cleverly designed to match the MacBook, although it would be compatible with any device. Fund the ongoing kickstarter campaign for just $79 to get your own HUB+.

She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
