A Micro USB port is fragile and can only be plugged in one way. In an effort to make these ports more functional the Firestone engineering club bought adapters from Micro USB to USB Type-C. USB Type-C is a more robust connector that can be plugged in right side up and upside down. However these were long and our cable does not fit imbetween the adapter and our linear punch. To solve this I thought of a USB Type-C connector that is a right angle and goes up towards the screen. This would allow our team to use the USB Type-C connector without issues of compatability with the adapters size.
