An USB connector that works both ways

Don’t you hate it when you try to insert an USB connector in an USB port and it doesn’t fit that way. So you turn it over, only to find out you held it the right way the first time, but you just didn’t push hard enough.This might be history, since designer Ma Yi Xuan designed USB connector that fits both ways.

In order to provide connection both ways the Double USB has two retractable connection layers. When inserted one layer retracts back into the plastic housing of the connector and the other layer stays in place to provide the data connection.

The design is still a concept at the moment but hopefully it won’t take too long to find its way into production.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
