Cord management products often suffer from two problems. They're bulky and ugly. The Cableyoyo from Bluelounge Design is neither. Measuring only 9 mm thick and 80 mm square, Cableyoyo works a lot like a spool of thread. Users simply wind the cord around its central hub. Once wound, the cord coils neatly within the product's square exterior shell, which emanates from the top and bottom of the hub. This low-profile cord management system, molded from ABS, also includes a separate mounting attachment and an adhesive-backed post that snap fits into the Cableyoyo's hub. It handles low-voltage cords up to 5 mm in diameter and comes in a variety of colors to match the aesthetics of various computer systems. Dominic Symons, who designed the Cableyoyo, has now created a brand new version designed for mobile electronics and headphone wires. At just 56 × 40 × 12 mm Cableyoyo POP fits on the back of many MP3 players, phones and other portable electronics. It, too, works on the spool principle. But here the spool consists of a thin thermoplastic top shell and an elastomeric component that forms the hub, as well as a suction cup that attaches the POP to the electronic device. A variety of decorative stickers are available to dress up the POP's top surface. For more information, visit www.cableyoyo.com.
