Lee Washington, a product design student currently studying in London at Central Saint Martins, recently posted a video describing an ingeniously simple concept design for headphones that will not get tangled.

It’s one of those great inventions that begs the question, why didn’t someone think of this sooner? Washington explains the design he thought of while struggling for his ear buds on a bus in this brief YouTube video:
