2-in-1 iPhone Lightning cable inspired by Transformers

It's a Lightning and a Micro-USB in one.

Cable clutter is the bane of gadget hounds everywhere. If you can find a way to ditch a cable, it’s a beautiful thing. I guess that makes the Orobis Transform cable a beautiful thing. It combines an Apple Lightning connector with a Micro-USB connector leading to a standard USB connector on the other end.

The idea of a 2-in-1 cable isn’t new. What’s cool is how the Transform handles it. Inspired by the Transformers, the Lightning part of the cable fits over the Micro-USB part. To expose the Micro-USB, you slide a small latch, fold it over, and plug it in. It’s cute and functional.

The Orobis Transform is mercifully much simpler to assemble and re-assemble than a lot of the the Transformers toys. I recently spent 20 minutes trying to sort out an Optimus Prime. The Transform is just a matter of sliding and folding.
