Extendable safety socket / household appliances

Extendable safety socket
Extendable safety socket

It is good for current family life. We are often distressed by the socket. We often can’t find a surplus socket and often hear people say that too many plugs in socket causes fire. We decide to conceive a more intuitive program to let users to expand plugs by instinct. There are warning lights on the back of the socket, and it is also used as the guiding light in the dark and when there is over voltage loaded, it will fall off automatically, which can achieve the goal of safety and intuitive.
