Wind I-O / Power Switch

Wind I-O
Wind I-O

“Wind IO” is a universial power switch. It was mainly designed for people who lost their hands or for elderly without enough strength. The normal small appliances (exp. light, radio,TV....) can be connected on it, so people can turn on/off just like light.Its core is a control cube with a IO button in the center, and with LED back light.
Two wings look like a paddle, which is extended from the control cube and they will rotate when wind blowed on it. When people want to turn on connected light, they can just blow easily to the wing “on ”.
For normal people, they can push the central IO button to control any electric equipmen connected on it.
