Earth socket / Socket

Earth socket
Earth socket

Globe warming is the increase Earth’s temperature between air
and oceans. Everyone understands this situation but it is hard to ask to the user to decrease electric power consumption. Therefore, we designed a new socket with earth image in order to reminder globe warming. The idea is that when a user consume a lot of electricity in the short period of time, the socket will show a image of Earth on fire. This image will communicate globe warming to the users. Thus,
the power consumption will be decreased by every “earth socket”.
