Length-Adjustable Power & Other Lines
I am neither a terribly neat person nor a person suffering from mysophobia, yet I would love to clean up the mess behind the multi-media section in my home where I had put my television, stereo, play station, video plyer, cable box, and some other appliances such as telephone. So naturally, behind all these would be a jungle of "needlessly" long cables.
Presently, I had tied the cables into groups which helped a little in solving the problem. It would be really helpful if the cables were the RIGHT length or make wireless appliances, which I believe is on the way. However, in the mean time, why not make the power cables and other interconnecting cables adjustable. One way would be to have the cables coil up hidden within a aplliance so you could pull out the exact length of cable. This would be useful when re-locating your furniture, too.
Also consider making the cables bendable, I mean have some kind of wire withing the cable to make them take a certain shape. Then, it would be possible to have the cables running tightly along the corners and edges without using tapes or other untidy things.
Home appliances are evolving day by day in the technical sense. Length adjustable cables can be achieved without highly advanced technology. Please make them for me. Thanks.
