If you are a reader of this blog, you know how I feel about untidy cordage piles. But with the number of gizmos we use daily comes the unavoidable multitude of cables and wires. We can leave them where they are, of course, and treat them as an OCD defying exercise; or we can implement MOS by Andrew Adams and Greg Petersen. The idea is simple enough – set the end of your cable on the MOS when it’s not in use and the MOS will magnetically hold it in place until you’re ready to put it to use again. Not all cables are created equally, however, and some do not respond to the magnetic field surrounding the MOS. For these cases, each MOS includes 3 magnetic cable ties that can be wrapped around these more troublesome cables adding the ability to be held to the MOS. Sweet!
