Not all technology is, well, technology. Some of it is elemental. Steel and silicon. Those two elements describe the entirety of the technology associated with CordBrick™’s block of silicon with a heart of steel. The silicon exterior offers six channels for tucking in cables, holding phones, and well, tucking in cables.
The $14.97 CordBrick sits easily as the center of a wrapped cord tucked away into a bag. A device may sit atop CordBrick above a surface. Lean a device against the brick or prop one against a wall and employ the silicon brick to stop it from slipping.
To leverage CordBrick effectively, use it for more than one thing, even simultaneously. Use it as a stand, as it also controls cable flow across a desk. Bind it with a headphone cable and a charging cable and stow them together for the road trip ahead.
CordBrick’s weight and channels are its only features. The two channels on either end can be plied open to hold a phone. It is not large enough to hold a tablet, but an iPhone Pro works just fine.
Bricks have been around for millennia. I cannot suggest improvements to this version of CordBrick, except to say that bricks come in many sizes. CordBrick should consider a desktop model for managing bigger cables, like those associated with keyboards, USB-C cables, and HDMI connectors.
The brick is available in aqua, blue, dark grey, glow-in-the-dark, green, light grey, pink, and purple.
On the environmental front, I’d like to see the elimination of the plastic window on the box. I know it’s a retail standard, but the images on the otherwise all cardboard box will sufficiently tell CordBrick’s story.
CordBrick: The bottom line
A nice little block of silicon weighted by a steel ingot that can help manage all the dangles, wild cable knots and tangles that litter desks and purses, bags and counters.
