Babyproof Usb



This is an idea I had after a friend of mine had an accident with his laptop and his baby boy. I hate the usb devices that are too big but do not have an extension cable and are always in the way,especially on laptops.. Its an accident waiting to happen..In my case the Ethernet port was damaged when the cable was pulled brutally by accident.So a USB to Ethernet was used but this is way too big to "hang"out of a laptop and so the inevitable happened..
