Powramid: Conical Power Strip

powramid.jpg

Coming to a store near you after the Consumer Electronic Show 2008*, the tongue-tying “Powramid” is a nice little conical power strip that leaves all six plugs accessible even if filled with oversized wall warts. It won’t be as pretty when it’s filled with plugs, but I like it. Especially the little LED on the top.

I’ve given up trying to hide all my wires, zip-tying my power strips down under my desk and all that. I am embracing wires instead, confident that we’ll eventually figure out how to remove them from our lives in the next decade or three.

    I have the ezSpace UFO (2 of them) from ezGear, and I absolultely love it. I think I have seen it online at Home Depot and Target for under $25.00.

    Considering the “Hospital Grade” 12″ extension cords I recently bought for my over sized gadget plug ins did not fit in a regular power strip, I’d just love to know the price for this.

    I wonder if they could be stackable… Maybe a few pillars in between the plugs, tilted up so they wouldn’t impede the insertion, and then they could be placed on top or twisted into a locked position. Perhaps even a 1 cm clear plastic layer on the base, so you could see which in the tower are plugged in.

    I guess then it would be more like a Tower of Power…
