Scosche flipSYNC II keychain cable wins award at CES

We deal with a lot of messy cables these days. We’ve got HDMI cables leading from our televisions, audio cables leading from our headphones, and USB cables leading to our various peripherals. While it doesn’t solve all of life’s problems, the Scosche flipSYNC II looks like it could help. In fact, Scosche took home a CES Innovation 2011 Design and Engineering Award.

It doesn’t look like much, but this follow-up to the original flipSYNC can retract up a standard iPod/iPhone charge and sync cable into a package that is much more easily handled. Pull out the connects when you need them, fold them back in when you don’t. It sounds so simple, helping you eliminate those messy tangles. Stuff like this is pretty useful when you’re on the road.

In addition to the iPod and iPhone model, the guys at Scosche tell me that they’ve also got microUSB and miniUSB versions of the flipSYNC II. No, this isn’t going to blow you away like the Motorola Atrix 4G would, but I can see how this would be useful.

Similarly, Scosche was showing off a carabiner-equipped version called the clipSYNC. Like the flipSYNC II, it does USB 2.0 for both charging and data synching.
