The Magnetic Switch Plate by Jake Frey

Jake Frey, an industrial designer in Philadelphia, designed this handy switch plate cover for Urban Outfitters home goods. The switch features a high-powered magnet hidden behind the cover, so the owner enter his or her home and drop the keys on the switch. Voila! No more lost keys, that is if you remember to drop them there.
