Remember how great those MagSafe power connectors were, and how no one could understand why Apple stopped making them?

You don't?


Never mind.

As cool as USB-C is, many of us were sad when Apple killed off MagSafe, which has undoubtedly saved the lives of countless laptops over the years.

That disappointment led us to a key insight: Why not place the magnetic breakaway connection at the outlet?

Tug works with any power cord.

It also works as a quick switch: just tug to turn off a vacuum or lamp.

I hate to be a skeptic killjoy. It’s an interesting idea, and I almost bought it, since my daughter smashed her new Mac to the ground last year resulting in a $600 screen repair. But looking closer at their graphic, the guy is tripping near the outlet. I’m not convinced it would actually work if the fall happens closer to the computer. A tug on the cord at a point closer to the computer might still cause it to pull off the bed.
