Dear Gemini users,

In searching through USB-C hubs, I noticed this elegant little thing just coming up on Kickstarter today.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hypers...;token=d92dc661

As I am a Luddite concerning these things I wonder if any of you would have a comment. You can pick up an Early Bird one at half off for $49 USD.

The grip part, and HDMI probably wont work (and the "grip" part may make it useless on Gemini as well...!). And the way charging is implemented on the Gemini will probably prevent that as well. But it is compact, and should work otherwise...

Please note that the grip part is completely detachable. This should allow it to fit the Gemini very nicely.

This or that seem a better fit for Gemini given its limitations, are more affordable and readily available. The sad part - any of the hubs sharing this design blocks the headphone jack.

But the hyperdrive USB-C port has a 3.5mm jack - so wouldn't you be able to use that if it covers the one on the Gemini?

Probably - it seems to be a USB2.0 soundcard, thus should work with most devices including Gemini.
