Power Cables with Lego Sensibilities

Wires are a hassle, that much we've known since we started using electricity for mass consumption. However, as much as we try, we can't seem to get rid of the darned things. Sure, phones and computers are now wireless, but they still run on batteries, and sooner or later you'll have to plug them in.

Designers Wang Qiubo and Hu Xinyan realized that the best solution to this tangled mess was to make the wires manage themselves. Hence, their quite literally-named "Stick Together Wire" concept marries the idea of connectible Lego pieces with unruly power cables. The insulating sheaths of each outlet has either a notch or a peg on each side, so you can just zip them up together and keep them in their place.
