Genius! Flatpack Power Plugs for UK Outlets

This cool design by Min Kyo Choi revamps power plugs for UK outlets into flatpack structure, making them super space savers until you need to plug it into the wall, and then it's just a quick twist to turn it into the right shape for the outlet. The obvious eco questions behind this concept are what potential it hold on saving space and materials for packaging, and therefore shipping, of whatever products it might get incorporated into. But on the other hand, durability of the plug, now that there's a movable part involved, might mean it has to get replaced more often - or worse, the whole product would get replaced rather than repaired.

Still, very cool idea, considering how annoying bulky cords are!
