“What am I going to do with that cord?” she said. “I want everything to be clean … why don’t you wind it up inside the pad?”
She was a surgeon, and she needed to make sure that she felt ‘right’ at her workstation, so she noticed something we hadn’t fully appreciated. It was a fantastic insight. We designed the charge pad to work anywhere in the house, so the cord had to be long enough to work in a variety of spaces… but leaving the cord dangling, even if it’s wound in a little leather wrap, wouldn’t cut it. The details matter. We had to modify the design to incorporate some kind of internal cord wrap.
