Rotating Memory Card Reader You Can Keep Attached to Your Laptop

If you have a laptop that doesn’t have memory card slots built in, then you probably know how annoying it is to have to plug in a card reader every time you transfer photos. The new MR-C25 Series of memory card readers by Elecom tries to solve this problem by making the USB card reader sit flush against the side of your laptop, meaning they can stay attached to your laptop when you stow it away. They also have a 180 degree rotating body that allows you to access other ports that might be blocked. It’ll start selling sometime this month, but no word on how much it will cost.

    Most Mac models have an SD card reader, except the white notebook and the tower. While most computers have an SD card reader these days, SDXC support might be hard to come by, I don’t check for that.

    Elecom appears to be a Japan-only brand, so the chances of seeing one outside of Japan this month are probably slim. If there’s a need for this, then I hope it finds a distributor.
