What’s this? A technology that will forever change the way you insert batteries into any device? Apparently so. Microsoft recently announced a something called “InstaLoad” that allows you to insert batteries into any device without having to worry about the battery’s orientation and lining up the negative and positives correctly.
With InstaLoad-enabled devices, as long as the batteries have juice, it doesn’t matter how they’re inserted – the device will work. Not only is this a simple convenience for the majority of consumers out there, it’s especially helpful for those with disabilities that prevent them from seeing the sometimes very-hard-to-read battery diagrams on various devices.
Microsoft has already made the new technology available to third parties for licensing, and is offering a royalty-free to suppliers and manufacturers of accessibility devices for those with hearing, vision and learning disabilities.
