Power Saving Power Socket

 

It makes a change to find a power socket that actually saves power, but that is what this concept design from a group of designers; Seong Soyeon, Kim Seonmi, Lee Jeongjae, Park Jihye & Lee Yeontaek does.

The so called PumPing Tap is basically a spring loaded power socket that can detect when a device is not in use and in which case it ejects the plug from the socket and therefore will save power in the longer term.

You have to assume that this would work when charging a device a too, so as soon as the battery is fully charge the device stops using power and is ejected from the socket! It is a cool idea so long as the cost is acceptable!
