sandglass / Commodity

sandglass

SANDGLASS is a unique and interesting design for charger. The nature of charge is the transferring of electrical energy. So I am thinking that sandglass is a same process from quantitative change to fundamental change when the sands go from one end to the other end gradually. Normal charger has only two modes: charging and have charged. In this situation, people will always neglect the existence of time.SANDGLASS is a product with metaphor that electrical energy is as precious as time, which can arouse people to save energy. SANDGLASS makes the normal charger never be a meaningless tool, it also provides great experience with users.
