Entry Description

Normally if someone would want to take out a electrical plug, they would need to switch off the power and pull it out with a considerate amount of energy.This Conceptual but visible idea allows just one finger to do all the job. Using see-saw concept, the plug would be ejected from a plastic right underneath the plug when the button on the top of the plug head enclosure is being pressed. And when it is being ejected, the live connection would be cut of as the 'see-saw' leaves the metal strip. The button does not just function as a button but also as an indicator of whether the electricity is on.
