As with all design, the simple and obvious solutions are often over looked for a more “clever” solution. I’ve bought clips, clamps, cut holes in tables and generally tried to be too clever to hide my cables, but I was never this inventive. Meet Flexicord.

It’s a range of cables like, USB, HDMI, Composite and Ethernet which hold their shape, thus meaning you can place them behind the printer and not have them stretch, tangled up around everything on your desk. (Honestly, you should see the number of cables I use). You can stretch them to the position or shape need, or coil them up and they won’t unravel.

Flexicords rock. Everybody says well done for thinking of such a simple thing (even if we say it with a hint of jealousy).
