Many have been upset about the shortcomings of the new MacBook Pro. Mainly the lack of an SD card slot and HDMI ports. Literally millions of dollars are being spent by consumers to undo Apple's choice (mistake if you will).
Enter the HyperDrive: Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Hub for 2016 MacBook Pro. Coming in at $70 they were able to raise $1.7 million by backers on Kickstarter. Instead of buying various adapters as a solution, HyperDrive does it all in one gadget and the design is sleek and in line with Macbook's aesthetic.
