Stuff , that based on Electric energy - spends energy continuously when they are not working mode. For saving Electric energy , it should be completely pulled out from the multi-tap.
It is not hard. But a little tiresome. How can design solve this problem for people ?
if there is any way to make the user save electric energy with less stress for saving, but still to guide the user to save electric energy. And there was the answer in the thought of an old-Chinese philosopher, the Mencius. Among the four ethical attributes of human nature, ren, yi, li and zhi, the first feature, ren (仁) makes “sympathy” and this came naturally, since it’s the human nature from the moment of the birth.
