Switch Socket has multiple useful facets all in one go. The design makes it easy for you to glide in the plug, and the rotary switch ensures that you exercise the good sense of switching off a plugged appliance, when not in use. This saves you the trouble of yanking out a plug! LED lights round the socket passively remind you that you can save energy. What I like most about the lock and rotate feature is that it kinda makes it a child-safe socket, unless your kid is over smart and work his way around this one too!
Switch Socket is a 2011 red dot design concept winner.
