Lizard tail Adapter / Adapter

Lizard tail Adapter
Lizard tail Adapter

Lizard tail is an adapter that creates a more safer environment for laptop users.

The various cables and connectors hinder people's movements in public areas. If a passerby trips over one of these cables, it can cause the laptop to fall off the desk leading to a breakage.

Lizard tails are conected to the adapter by a magnet. If a certain amount of force is applied to the adapter, the cable that is attached to the laptop is disconnected as if a lizards tail is detached from its body. When this occurs, the color of the indicator on the in-put cable changes to let the user know the status of their adapter.
