Cable Tag / Universal Design

Cable Tag
Cable Tag

Have you pulled off the wrong plug again?

Are you confused with all those tangled wires and plugs, Not knowing which leads to what household appliance?

People use the words, colors or patterns that they like. To leave marks on certain objects, reminding both themselves and others that those are their belongings.

Based on this idea, “Cable-Tag” allows a user to leave marks on the appliances,
In whatever ways they are comfortable with. A florescent component helps the user to easily find the right plug to pull, when lights are dim.
