Switch+ / socket


Socket actually has its own potential threaten, such as the children's safety, and kicking the plug without noticing. Fortunately, SWITCH+ is an innovative design to avoid those things happening. 1. Under normal situation, the socket is concealed in case dangerous accidents happen. 2. After switching the socket, we can insert plugs and switch it downward so that plugs can be placed into the socket box for saving space and avoiding danger. 3. SWITCH+ is able to receive and identify the data releasing from the electric equipments; in this case, SWITCH+ can display simple graphics on itself for people to distinguish the differences directly.
