Eco-Socket: Plug and Pop

by Hazel Chua

I’ve been seeing a lot of electrical socket concepts lately. Maybe it’s because some people are finally more aware of the dangers of leaving devices that are no longer being used plugged in, or it could be because some have realized what a waste it is to keep electronic stuff plugged in all the time. Either that, or it’s just some sort of weird socket trend.

You can use the Dialug to schedule or set when you want power to flow through. But for everything else, there’s the Eco-Socket.

I honestly prefer the Eco-Socket over the other concept design because it’s more intuitive than a timer. The Eco-Socket automatically pops out and cuts power when it detects that a dip in energy consumption of a device that’s plugged in. It’s the more convenient option because there’s no need to time anything or keep monitoring it.

And when you need to power your device again, just push the plug right back in again. The Eco-Socket was designed by Ya-Hui Chi and is an entry for the 2011 Lite-On Award.
