Flexing your cords to eliminate cable tangles
January 7, 2009 A simple invention here, but one with some merit - Flexicord cables can be gently bent into shape, and they'll stay the way you set them, the idea being that you can coil them up so they're always the perfect length, and never in the way of anything else. They're available in HDMI, Cat5e, RCA phono jack, S-Video and USB varieties in lengths up to 10 feet.
The simple Flexicord is a 2009 CES Innovations award nominee. The cables themselves will be available for retail soon - keep an eye on the Flexicord website if you're interested.
