'Ball of yarn' battery charger is as long as you need it to be

Ever plug in your phone just to find out that another inch or two would allow you to perfectly set it down on the corner of your desk, or keep using it? Designer Yuchen Liu's conceptual charger won't ever run short, though you may want to keep it away from the cat.

Called the Wool Ball Charger, the cord is wrapped up into itself in a ball rather than in a loop as most of us usually do. Makes sense, though I can't help but feel that this thing would go against my natural compulsion to keep wires neat. I know a ball isn't untidy, but there's just something decidedly unruly about its appearance.
