VIDEO: 1cm thick UK plug designed

We hate plugs. Especially when you have to put them in your bag and they don't quite fit, or they scratch up your laptop. UK plugs are some of the biggest in the world, and that irked one designer enough to totally re-imagine them.

The folding plug concept has been visited before, but never to this radical a degree. The new design measures just 1cm thick when collapsed, but takes a moment to fold out for use.

Although there are currently no plans to put it into production that we're aware of, we'd love to be packing this in our laptop bags rather than the chunky models we're currently stuck with. Someone make it happen, yeah?
