Free Lines: Power cables that snap into each other


Rather than “put up with” (because it’s so hard to do) a rat’s nest of cables, a designer has come up with a new way to think about electrical outlets. It’s called Free Lines and uses a system of modular blocks and cables to tidy up the whole cabling process. You plug one end into the wall and then snap in as much cable as you need, terminating the series with an outlet.


Extraordinarily clever and extraordinarily simple. I don’t know about you guys, but I sorta get the feeling that simple, practical technological innovations have taken a back seat to aimless shows of force.
