shapeshifting socket

The shape of this "no-hole socket " can be changed arbitrarily. it can be a dog or a cat or any other shapes. It even can adhere to the wall.
We often encounter the problem that the plug doesn't match the jack and how to fix the socket on the wall. This design uses a new type of soft materials, with smooth surface and no jack. The power can be connected as long as the plug inserts into the jack. It is very convenient and practical. It can be changed into different shapes according to different demand, and it can bring fun to life. Besides , It is sticky, so it can be attached to any objects even the wall.
