Great is one who can plug a power cable into a socket in one try without looking. We have faced this problem almost everyday and we end up scraping the plug pins on the socket trying to find the holes. This is even more challenging in the dark or for those who cant see. Inspired from hand movements, lol is a concept for a socket that has special guides engraved into the surface and these lead the power pins effortlessly into the socket holes. The name lol represents the socket hole in between the guides. Additionally, it has a slot of varying width to place wires securely when not in use. Intuitive to use, easy to produce!
