The wall outlet of tomorrow: stylish, convenient, and functional.

Wall outlets — what exactly can we say? It’s a hole in the wall from which electrons spew forth when the appropriate (and sometimes inappropriate) material is inserted. How could technology and society actually make it better?

Enter the world transformed with the Rambler Socket. For starters, who says technology and mundane things such as wall outlets have to be ugly and unsightly? The Rambler is quite the looker.

Just because it looks good doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be functional. The Rambler excels again — offering up a fair amount of real world practicality.

The houses of tomorrow could have such a gadget pictured above and below. An outlet that stores an extension cord inside the outlet itself, allowing for more versatility and options when designing and building homes as well as giving homeowners one less thing to fret over.

I just with such concepts would come more quickly. It will easily be 15-20 years before we see any such technology implemented as “common” construction techniques in the U.S.*sigh*. Then again, they’ll have to swap out that goofy euro-connector in the pictures with a U.S. style before we could even use it anyway.

Who’s excited for wall outlets!?
