Gadget Design: Outlet Regulator “Leech Plug”
Coming to us from RISD student Conor Klein, the Leech Plug is a standout innovation in terms of design towards energy conservation. While common sense would dictate how the Leech Plug would work I’ll break it down anyway.
Using a timer circuit along with electromechanics, the plug itself will eject the cord attached to the gadget once a full charge is achieved. Cool for sure, but has anyone asked yet whether or not the plug still draws power from the outlet?
