on the subject of usb-c have you seen pcb-only usb ports? scribe the right sigils into your circuit board design program and choose the right thickness and you can just plug a cable straight into your pcb with no port hardware
i ❤️❤️❤️ hacks like this

"I didn't want a reliable connector for thousands of uses, i wanted just an occasional connector to hook up to my PC and program it, or take some data. So this type of connector is just fine for that purpose, no soldering, no extra cost, no uncommon cables, just a micro b cable and you are good to go." https://github.com/Pinuct/Eagle_PCB_USB_connectors
@pho4cexa Another nice thing about it is that it's completely flat, so it's perfect for any business card projects, even if you only use it for power.
@pho4cexa @email@example.com absolutely love stuff like this (both the idea behind the project and the particular technique you've highlighted). this is what tech could be full of. creative, enabling, accessible, low-cost awesome shit.
@June same, i want to build a gallery showcasing each and every example i can find, it's so uplifting
@pho4cexa, sadly it's not licensed properly. It has no licence at all, and the guy didn't respond to the issue.
