The GAN Switch / Electrical Socket

I was talking on the phone, needed to unplug an electrical plug but my hands were full of papers.This inspired me to create a new device to solve the problem of unable to use one finger to eject the plug.Normally if someone would want to take out a electrical plug, they would need to switch off the power and pull it out with a considerate amount of energy.This conceptual but visible idea allows just one finger to do all the job. The ON/ OFF Switch which also as a button to eject the plug, helps to tell you if the plug is connected to the power supply or is it not.
