Let’s Play Lego Sockets

Rotating 360° is a multi-outlet socket system that allows you to add many sockets to the strip – ala Lego style. The main feature is that you can turn around the socket-outlets in any direction, so as to accommodate various plugs. You have to admit that this is a cool idea.

    WOW what a really great idea, Thanks, Cheng-Hsiu Du & Chyun-Chau Lin. Being an Audio,visual and Photography person, I'm always dealing with different size plugs. Along with various size power strips cluttering the floor. This bright new take on power strips will remove some of my clutter plus I can now color code every thing, great idea. Merry Christmas !

    the idea is nice but I see it a little dangerous for kids, no?

  • James says:

    No. How is this dangerous for children? This is no more dangerous than any other type of plug socket or extension lead. Keep your children away from electrical appliances would be the answer. A car is a little dangerous for children as is a hundred things around the home, which is why intelligent people don't let their children drive their cars, juggle with knives or operate the cooker. So no, it's not a little dangerous at all, only the parenting skills of anyone who would rather moan about their children doing it than tell them not to. This is a very simple and quality idea. It should be put into production.

    • ting says:

      not only for children. this thing is simply not save and would never be out that way. Maybe you can't see it but there is electricity on open parts.

    • a parent says:

      Clearly you must not have children of your own. You would be surprised at what children can get into, even with the most diligent parent's supervision. What if this were dangerous for adults, too? Is your electrical convenience more important than the safety of others? And your logic stinks. Really — juggle with knives? Is that really comparable to live electricity?

    • Lee says:

      It is not suitable for any use, it CANNOT get UL approval because of the exposed contact.
      The design shows that the designer is not familiar with even reasonable simple safety standards.
      James, your comments show that you also have no concept of electrical engineering.

    What's stopping a user from attaching 30 socket pieces to this and dangerously overloading the supply?

      I don't know. What's stopping that user from doing it to a normal power strip?

    what a Brilliant solution!!!

    This design seems pretty useless… why not just turn the outlets parallel to each other??

    is the wiring solved or it’s just a concept?

    Brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Casey says:

    Looks like a great concept. However, you should not be able to take it apart or to add on additional outlets. That just brings it to a new level of danger as you have 120V of power running through that thing and the possibility of exposed metal.

  • Sam says:

    Why has nobody asked the question: Is that 'nipple' sticking out the side of each socket live? I assume it would be to get current to the next socket. so how on earth can this be in the slightest bit safe?

    Now that is what I need!

    Where can i buy this product?

  • Thomas says:

    How the hell are none of you intelligent enough to comprehend the idea that you shouldn’t take it apart while it’s plugged in. How the fuck is that not common sense. You unplug ANY appliance before tampering/modifying it. If you follow that basic law of common sense, theres no danger of exposed electricity.

    If you or your child dies because of it, it’s called natural selection. Clearly you or your offspring weren’t intelligent enough to be contributing to the gene pool.

  • MG says:

    WOw! I want aobut 3 of these for my office! When and where can I buy them? And will they work for North American plugs?

  • SAMER KALLAS says:

    DEAR ALL
    I LIKE YOUR ROTATING SOCKET , AD WOULD VERY GREAT TO GAVE US THE BEST PRIES FOR BULK QTY. REGARDS/SAMER

  • Soody says:

    No the “hot” end is always the female contact with plugsThat is an industry safety standard. The male “nipple” end is inert until energized by plugging in to the female (like your wall sockets).
    That being said, small curious fingers may find their way into the live end (from the look of it), I can’t tell. However, it may only require a slight redesign to prevent that issue if it exists.

  • Margie says:

    Do they make it for the three pronged plugs, would love to have it, but practically useless unless it takes grounded plugs!

  • Steven says:

    This is a great design! Innovative, creative, and beautiful. I’d love to purchase one of these for the office.

  • suleman shehzad says:

    It should have some kind of functionality, such that, once the lego socket gets seperated it automatically disconnects power supply. Which would make it v.less harmful for children.
    Otherwise, Awesome idea *_*

  • natels says:

    This is not a product yet. It is a design concept.

    The glaring flaw in the design is the exposed pin on the “hot” side.

    I can see several design improvements that could be made do make this a viable, marketable product.

  • Harry says:

    Could you make this in uk type plugs?

    I once saw a dealer in New Jersey by googling but they were closed because of the snow storms. I’m trying to relocate that supplier. Can anyone help?
