Twelve South today launched a new product called the "StayGo," which is a portable hub that connects to USB-C MacBooks and MacBook Pros.

According to the company, the hub restores all eight legacy ports and connections to modern Mac notebooks. This includes: three USB-A ports (USB 3.0), one 4K HDMI port, one Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB-C ports (one for power input and one for connecting to the computer), and independent SD and Micro-SD card ports.
The StayGo comes with a 1-meter cable that is long enough to hide the accessory and its connected cables out of sight when you're working at home. The company is pitching the new device as a combination home and travel companion, which means that it also includes a 6-inch travel cord (seen below on the right) that stores inside the hub.
StayGo is available for $99.99 on TwelveSouth.com and at Amazon.

(Too bad—otherwise it looks like a great product.)
HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort are both 60Hz, and there are several dongles that support have supported that for years. The CalDigit HDMI/DP dongles support multiple 4k monitors at 60Hz, so maybe the solution is just don't provide power pass-through. 30Hz is a dealbreaker in any product released after 2015.
But it’s unavailable now for some reason. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have the extra USB-C and only two USB-A 2.0. Not quite the same, but close.
