It has probably happened to you if you've ever owned a desktop LCD or
desktop tower: the curse of the not-quite-long-enough extension cable.
It's pretty difficult to move a whole desk once you've got it set in
place within your home, but adding an extension cord doesn't take much
effort at all. The only problem is that a bright orange extension cable
is generally an unsightly mess when ran within the home, and we guess
this whole quandary is exactly what inspired Meysam Movahedi to create
the concept he did.
The Ramber Socket is a new twist on an old product: the typical AC wall
outlet. Rather than simply allowing a socket to connect, this device
has an in-wall box that contains 1.5 meters of extra wiring. If you
need a little more length to connect your gizmo to power, you can just
roll it out to the length you need. Once you're done, a gentle pull
will enable it to recoil nicely back into the in-wall enclosure.
This is definitely one of those designs that make you wonder why you
didn't think of that, and with any luck, we'd imagine that these will
hit home improvement stores really soon.
