Magnetic Slot Plugs / socket/plug

Magnetic Slot Plugs

Why do all the extension cords always have to be so big and bulky? Let’s think outside of the box. What if we have a different relationship between the cords and plugs? The concept of plugging in horizontally instead of vertically not only shrinks the size of extension cord but also makes it less difficult to remove the plugs. More than that, it allows intuitive simplification of power saving. You only have to move the plugs outward a little bit to cut off power without completely removing the plugs at all. A simple movement saves power while eliminating fire hazard.
