Flexicord takes an unusual approach to managing cables: it ships in a coiled form, but "remembers" the shape you stretch it into (rather like the bendy toys of my childhood). End result? Once cables are positioned, they won't move, but a protective layer ensures data isn't corrupted and wires don't snap. The one in the shots (shown off at the CES Unveiled event this week) is an HDMI cable, but what I'd really like is the USB model for my home office. It's only a prototype for now (commercial release is scheduled for later this year), but a useful option to bear in mind for future cable management projects.
