Ideas are born in the craziest places. In this case the kitchen was this place, actually the kitchen of Sebastian Matheis in Switzerland. He was surprised that power adapters for the typical Swiss triple plugs did not fulfil their purpose. If one power adapter is plugged into one connection of the triple socket, the other two connections are blocked. “That doesn’t make sense.” Sebastian thought to himself and wanted to change that. He was supported in his project by creative minds from all over the world.
THE SWISS POCKET KNIFE AMONG THE POWER ADAPTERS
As a manager at a pharmaceutical company, Sebastian is used to bringing global specialists to the table and solving problems. The result of his private, entrepreneurial journey is 3-Dapter, the world’s first power adapter that fits into any Swiss socket while keeping all other sockets free. The practical everyday helper for Switzerland convinced over 870 supporters, who made the project a reality via the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
