Wiretape Makes Cables Worthy Again

We’re pretty vocal about our distaste for the traditional wire. After all, they’re only slightly flexible, and some of them are down-right bulky. Plus, they get tangled, like they have a mind of their own. So, if we have to go with wires, we’re happy to use Wiretape, which was just unveiled at this year’s E3. It didn’t get top-billing like Microsoft’s couple announcements, but maybe it should have. After all, this is pretty cool.

Wiretape is, according to the company, is the thinnest cable on the planet. And, as you can see from the picture herein, they are probably right. It doesn’t even look like a wire at all. The thinnest cable in the world is a product of Hitech Innovation Group and Fame, LLC. They’re showing off their cable at the world’s largest video game expo, and letting people know that Wiretape will start being sold in September of this year.

You can fold up the wire as many times as you like, and it’s extreme-temperature resistant. As thin as the wire is, you can even paint over it, hide it under carpet, or even wallpaper. It’ll come in two sizes: a width of five lines for cables like USB, S-VHS, and composite, and a width of 18 lines for larger cables like HDMI, VGA, and RJ45. And with all those new announcements, with more still to come, this is something that we can get behind.
