Product Update #1: Reversible HyperDrive & New White LED Activity Indicator
From the private messages and comments posted by backers here, we gather that some of you are not aware that HyperDrive (like the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C connectors themselves) are reversible and you can actually use the HyperDrive on either side of the 2016 MacBook Pro with Touchbar (sorry non-Touchbar 2016 MacBook Pro users, you only have 2 x Thunderbolt 3 USB ports on the left side only)
The problem was the blue LED activity indicator light was only visible on one side of the HyperDrive.
The solution is to move the LED activity indicator light to the bottom of the HyperDrive so that it is visible from either orientation. We have also made the LED activity indicator larger and changed the LED activity indicator color from blue to white, to be consistent with the white LED backlit keyboard.
We hope you like this.
P.S. Don't worry about the HyperDrive colors not matching the MacBook Pro. We were just experimenting with different shades of color. The final HyperDrive will match the Silver and Space Gray colors of the MacBook Pro.
