Description du projet
Power sockets are fixed in their place and can't adjust to changing needs. Because of that power sockets often define home furnishings and the way appliances are used.
SurroundPower offers a variable power distribution in the residental sector.
As part of the industrial project in the industrial engineering degree programme we developed an idea that allows a variable power distrubtion. Since then, we have been passionately working on the full implementation of this idea called SurroundPower.
SurroundPower consists of a powertrack and various adapters. The powertrack replaces the skirting board in the living area and at the same time distributes the power throughout the room. The adapters provide a secure connection between the powertrack and your appliances and can be plugged in, out and be moved anywhere on the powertrack.
Due to its unique powertrack structure, SurroundPower offers a very high safety standard. Cable tangles, extension cords and power strips are no longer needed, because with SurroundPower the next plug-in is always right by your side.
The objective of our project is to sustainably replace the power socket and have a positive impact by making people's lives easier.
SurroundPower combines the function of the skirting board with the power distribution in the living area. Architects no longer have to plan sockets and electricians no longer have to laboriously install them in the building structure. SurroundPower simplifies the work of the people involved and at the same time offers the customer huge added value. On top of that, SurroundPower's vision is to build an international standard in power distribution and to end the different kind of power sockets in all countries.
The power socket is widespread and is the way people use electricity today. But this century-old concept is not user-friendly at all. This is where SurroundPower comes into play. It offers variability, attractive design and a higher safety standard than the power socket.
SurroundPower is still under development. First prototypes have already confirmed the function of the concept. The next big step is a showroom equipped with SurroundPower, which will convince architects, electricians, construction companies, investors and other stakeholders of the concept.
We already have good contacts with manufacturers and distributors and are looking forward to signing contracts with our partners soon.
