Electrical cord clutter; a few simple solutions


It seems as if all electrical appliances come with multiple cords nowadays. One can’t buy a simple radio or it needs to be connected to more than just the wall outlet. Not to mention the speakers, antenna, cords to and from your i-Pod, PC, modem etcetera.

Result; clutter and then some. Reason enough for some clever designers to come up with clever ideas to reduce the clutter these cords provide for.
