Frustrated? Design it!

Frustrated with something stupid that you feel like could have an easy fix to it? Why don’t you take matters into your own hand, and design it yourself! That’s just what David Barnett did. Barnett was a professor who was simply frustrated with his headphone wires constantly tangling. He wanted something that was easy to use but also effacement with a modern cell phone that wouldn’t be a distraction to using your phone. After playing with some buttons and glue, Barrnett knew he was onto a genius design. And just like that he created the Popsocket, that allows someone to wrap their headphones around the base and when they don’t need to use it, they can simply pop it back in. The Popsocket safely sticks to your phone and comes with other benefits like making it easier to hold your phone and using it as a phone stand. The Popsocket comes in many different colors and designs, and it can even be personalized/customized. The bottom line is, don’t wait for someone else to create something that you can create, you could become a millionaire!

    I’ve been seeing these everywhere and I was interested! I didn’t know how many uses there were for it either. I wonder how long the Popsocket will endure and evolve in the market. Also, the personalized designed on each of them definitely helps with their appeal.
