5. Green/outlet helps you cut down the power bill [link]

Green/outlet by US designer Toygar Targutay is a smart solution for all you eco friends. How? Statistics show that 75% of the electricity used to power home electronics in US goes waste for the reason that the gadget chargers remain plugged in even if they are not being charged. Besides shooting up the electric bill, it increases the carbon footprint. The Green/outlet works like a push-button switch and when the time which user had set is over, before connecting an electric device ejects the plug/charger physically from the outlet. Hey, that’s pretty cool, for the reason that it won’t make the users guilty and help minimizing the holes in the pockets.

1.5 meters cord that unfurls from a cavity behind its socket. When you don’t need extensions, it’s neatly tucked away. When you need it, simply pinch the sides and wind it out.

After the deed is done, you simply give the wire a gentle tug (activates a spring mechanism), and it recoils back into place. Ideal for using with electronics like vacuum cleaners, hair driers etc where you don’t need extension cords on a full-time basis.

Designer Yong-jin Kim is making it easier with ‘Switch’. This power socket takes the form of a power button, represented by a power symbol. Rather than “pulling the plug” to disconnect power, Switch has you turn the connected plug 45 degrees to the side. Switch capitalizes on the fact that standby power (electricity used by appliances connected to power but not in use) accounts for 11% of total household energy consumption.
