Unconscious Socket / Socket

Unconscious Socket
Unconscious Socket

Normally people have to pull the plug when they have used the household appliances to avoid safety risk, which is very inconvenient.
We designed “Unconscious Socket ”with a combination of the switch and the socket. It transforms the laboraious action into a sublimianal push, which is convenient and keeps people in the good habit of turning off the power timely.
