Talk about tidying up all the cables around your workstation while still looking smart, the ‘Sling Back’ by Quirky is a universal wire retractor that can suck up 3-feet of cable at one time.

Quirky is a new web-based service where product ideas are submitted by designers, and then selected to be developed by an online social community. They will select one product a week for further development, which will also be sold at their online shop. Perhaps the Sling Back will be one of those developed products.
