Folding UK Wall Plug - Making portable products even more portable...

My old college buddy Barry Simon hit me with this one: recent design-school grad Min-Kyu Choi won the Brit Insurance Design Award for a folding AC wall plug for use in the UK. It's regrettably true that even as portable devices have gotten slimmer and more pocketable, we remain stuck with existing AC plug standards. And in the UK, that's especially bad - their systems' plugs are huge. So it's certainly refreshing to see some innovation come to plug design: an elegant solution that lets you keep using the standard that's out there, but save some space in your bag. Congrats, Min-Kyu! (And thanks, Barry!)
