It can get pretty annoying having to move couches, tables, cabinets, and other random stuff out of the way so you can plug something into the socket. Unfortunately, it’s pretty much unavoidable, unless you want to spend ten minutes on your knees trying to find the angle of the holes on the socket.
Designers Suhyun Yoo, Eunah Kim & Jinwoo Chae probably couldn’t take oddly-angled sockets any longer, because they came up with the Donut Outlet concept design.
Basically, the Donut lets you to hook up your plugs quickly and easily into the socket, without any of the guesswork or inconveniences. You don’t need to move anything so that the holes of the socket are visible. The Donut has a ring-shaped connector so you can just plug it in, even without looking at the socket itself.
It’s a pretty neat design and a useful one at that. But is it technically feasible? Guess we have to wait and see.
