Designers churn out some really intriguing concepts all the time, but only every once in a while do you come across something as brilliant as the Clip Socket. The concept demonstrates outside-of-the-box thinking, a knowledge of users' problems with current electronics and an understanding of the technology.

The imaginative power strip is a bar that can be mounted on the wall or towards the floor, providing a generous length to accommodate many electrical plugs for a variety of gadgets. The way that these are connected is by tong-like links that open and close just like clothespins. It's quick and easy to pinch them open to attach and remove them from Sohyeon Kim's Clip Socket. This very action separates the metal plates from the source immediately, cutting the current for increased safety. Stats for Easy-Fastening Power Bars Trending: Older & Warm
