magsocket

This is a socket to improve the user experience and safety.The socket contains a magnet and a sliding module.When it's unused,the magnet and the slider are repulsive,pushing the slider out and disconnect circuit.The plug is magnet attracted somehow.When near the socket,its magnetic force will insert itself,pushing the slider inside and connect circuit.When you unplug after using,the slider will stick to the plug because of repulsion.Metal feet will appear after the socket is off power,which improves the safety greatly.You don't have to worry about your kids' safety.It don't require you to change any usage.Socket itself will change everything
