Egyptian inventor touts solution to lost USB problem
Designer to patent designs for PC housing of common portable storage media
An Egyptian inventor claims to have solved the problem of lost USBs and CDs by designing storage spaces that would be housed within desktops and laptops.
Yasser Hassan Refaat Mohamed submitted descriptions of the invention on teqnyatoday.net and said he had applied for patents with a Cairo notary office.
"There are a variety of spaces inside the regular PC and in laptops and notebooks to keep USBs," said Mohamed in his description of the invention.
There are reasonable spaces hidden next to the laptop's speaker that can [be used] to keep USBs [and] the opposite side of the SD slot [and the] back of the monitor [can be used] to [store] CDs."
Mohamed has also submitted a design to the notary office for a moveable webcam that can move "360 degrees horizontally and 180 degrees vertically" and would be operated either manually or remotely.
