IN-OUTlet / electric oulet


We expend significant amount of unnecessary electricity from stand-by power reasoning plugging in and out is annoying. Therefore we came up with simple push button operation system into conventional outlet. A push of plug will turn the power on and re-push will tune it off. This mechanism eases power saving by a simple push instead of conventional way of plugging in and out.
