We are looking for an industrial designer to help us with the design of a retractable cable system for an upcoming project. The cable shall be 200mm long, and will retract into a box 65mm x 65mm x 170mm.

Your task will be to design a low cost, 'designed for manufacture' solution, so that the cable can be pulled out and used when the customer would like, but then retracts back into the box and is hidden when not in use. Please see the sketches for further detail.
