GLOWing Guide / socket glow guide

GLOWing Guide
GLOWing Guide

It is late at night, you want to plug in your electronic device into the socket but you can't find the holes of the socket in the darkness, and you don't want to turn on the lights because everyone is slept. This is the problem we have all experienced and it is solved by a simple, affordable and functional idea.
The GLOWing Guide uses phosphorescent silicon surface that absorbs light in the day and glows in the darkness. This helps the user to find the holes of socket easily, even in total darkness. And thanks to the sticky backside that can be used for any type of socket and can be removed easily.
