Owl Socket
Owl Socket

People can plug into normal outlet in a daytime but if it is really dark, they can’t do it well because it is hard to see. So people try to do it by their own feeling. Eventually they turn on the light to check where the outlet is.

‘Owl socket’ is designed as having two circular lights on the outlet which is turned on when it is dark. Accordingly, People can plug well even if it is dark since they could see where it is.
