The simplest inventions in life are the best ones and ever since Dublin Bus introduced USB charging into their seats people have been generally losing their shit.
Public transport companies are used to people getting very angry with them on social media but a quick search for Dublin bus and it would appear that all people can talk about are the new USB sockets on the back of seats.
The future really has arrived according to most people...
I finally got a bus with USB ports on it Dublin bus is really living in 3017

With everybody addicted to their phones in this day and age keeping them charged up is an ongoing daily battle.
Stepping onto that bus and getting some juice is a godsend...
Of course some people want it to go further than USBs. Plugs for faster charging and more devices would be ideal in fairness...
Imagine Dublin Bus put plug holes rather than USB ports on the bus. You'd have people drying their hair and all upstairs hahaha smart move

All in all this might seem like a tiny thing to happen in Dublin but it is legit making people around the capital happy and making their lives easier...
