Alert Socket Panel

Power-hungry electrical appliances may be dangerous because of the overloading electricity consumption. However, when we found in burned appearance is too late. The design proposes an alert socket panel which applies temperature materials to alert users with color changes of the panel surface. When the electrical consumption is overloading, the plug is overheated and the panel will instantly change color because of the higher temperature. It informs users to remove the panel and avoid accidents.
