Magicable / Multi-tab power cable


Magicable is a non-designed (invisibly designed) multi-tab power cord, that looks exactly the same as the original multi-tab we are familiar with. However it can solve its biggest problem, which is the ‘un-manageable tangling problem’.
The idea behind this product is the re-invention of cable itself. It consists of normal flexible cable and partly semi-flexible cable, which has just enough rigidity to hold itself in place when users set its shape. The cable (cord) affords to be neatly tied with human interaction using wrapping, bending and tying.
