Here it is, 2015, and we’re still waiting for reversible USB. Although Type- C connectors promise to stop the one-way-only madness, the ports themselves have yet to arrive in any meaningful way — and even those don’t address an equally vexing plug problem: the other end.

Specifically, you know that Micro-USB connector that goes into your smartphone, tablet, e-reader, Bluetooth headset and pretty much every other non-Apple device known to man? Figuring out which end goes up is enough to drive a person to Lightning. Apple’s flawed-but-at-least-reversible port solved this issue years ago.

Enter MicFlip (pronounced “Mike-flip”), which claims to be the world’s first reversible Micro-USB cable. And it’s reversible at both ends, not just the USB Type-A side.
