Classy Digital Switchplates by SDesignUnit

Whether you prefer to keep it Cartesian or having some Sailor Moon infusion, it never hurts to get a little creative when it comes to adding a bit of character one of the most overlooked fixtures in our homes - the light switch. Designed by South Korea's Daelim construction company, Seoul-based SDesignUnit, are an array of smart light switches, temperature controllers, and visually stunning outlets that give a new life to the 20th century "digital home."

The main difference compared to traditional switch plates is the polished square shape design vs. your old school traditional rectangular shape. The design is supposedly more "user-friendly" in nature since the rectangular shape never made much sense to begin with. Their "Switch" model is a 'push button type' with an LED light emitting from inside. Its increased usability comes from the simple molding covered with a metallic plate, which supposedly helps users find them rather naturally.

They also specialize in making digital thermostats that utilize touch sensors, making it quick and easy to change settings on the fly without having to open a break-out box and scavenge for directions (if they even exist).

Pricing and availability, as well as a glimpse of their upcoming Home Networking Display System, can be found on their site over here.
