My Opinion: Power Socket Switch


The “Power Socket Switch” designed by Yong-jin Kim, allows easy power control by easily twisting it, instead of pulling it. The power socket is closed when the plug is not inserted in the socket and can’t be turned on unless the plug is fully inserted. Stand by power takes up 11% of our electrical bill and since the switch is easier and less time consuming, people will actually turn it off.

I think that they could add more to this design and develop alittle more because this design is a bit too simple and is too restricting. Outside of the US and Canada, many countries’s power sockets have light switch on it. Those are more cheap and easier to be used. Also the power socket switch could have had a timer and it’s not universal, so some people who don’t know about it, won’t know how to use it.
