T-switch / switch

T-switch

In our life, sometimes we can’t recognize the state of a switch easily or we have to memorize how it’s on and how it’s off. This bores us especially when there is a power failure. So I designed the T-switch to solve the problem.
I want everyone can recognize the state of T-switch at the first sight. So I used psychological theory when I design this product.

When the light or the TV is on, we can feel they are in an active state and when they are off, we feel they’re in an inactive state. So I designed a switch which looks active when it’s on and inactive when it’s off.

In this way, people can feel the correct state of the switch easily.
