Cableyoyo cleans up cable clutter

Cableyoyo iPod

Bluelounge in June began shipping , a device that it calls "the paperclip of the new millennium." Cableyoyo is a cord management device that "suits everyone with fixed & mobile electronic devices," including the iPod. The device features a stylish design that "blends seamlessly with any electronic device and so discreet it can disappear in-between products." It is also designed to protect cables from damage due to twisting and tangling. Cableyoyo effectively conceals up 6-feet (1.8 meters) of electronic cord. Cableyoyo may be used in transit, as a stand-alone container, or fixed, to neatly store unsightly cables at home and in the office. Cableyoyos are $5 each.

Protection - The "flat wound" cable spool concept protects the fragile wires and connectors from damage due to twisting and tangling. In most cases cables will be used "wound" by the user. Yet, even unwound, the cable remains untwisted due to the flat winding design.

Mobility - Because each cable is individually coiled, lightweight, and slim, Cableyoyo is "convenient for packing, transporting and deploying cables in a minimal space." It fits unobtrusively into a shirt pocket, the manufacturer says.

Fixed Devices - An inconspicuous adhesive clip, delivered with Cableyoyo, allows it to be permanently or temporarily directly mounted on walls, furniture, or computer peripherals. Unclipping the Cableyoyo from its mounting is also easy.
