One of the innovative features that Microsoft made with the original Xbox was the breakaway cable. That same design was somewhat perfected by Apple with their “patented” Magsafe magnetic power cord on their macbook and macbook pro computers. Belkin, the popular third party manufacturer of accessories has released the same product concept, except this time for guitarists. The magnetic cables are designed to clip on existing amp cables and require a pretty strong force to detach from their port – meaning, even with some hardcore thrashing, you won’t lose your sound by accident and ruin your party.
Expect their release in early 2008 at Belkin.
