Earbud Yo-Yo Introduced
Call frustration the mother of invention.
Julie Barklay is attending her first CES this year with a mission, to introduce a small piece of plastic that she says can make everyone's life much easier. "I was frustrated by the way earbud cords always get tangled, I wanted to find a way to organize them, so I took some pieces of my son's yo-yo and a spool of thread and I make a solution," she said.
Her answer to earbud spaghetti is the Earbud Yo-Yo, a new cord holder that works with any brand earbud. There are no mechanical parts to the Earbud Yo-Yo, nor does it retract automatically, but Barklay says the retractable holders have never really worked and her simple solution is eminently usable.
