This is the Svintus powerstrip concept from design studio Art Lebedev. It looks like a mutant pig and features 17 separate outlets. That...sounds like a house fire waiting to happen. Based on interest, they may actually put the powerpig into production. Of course, it might not make US production on account of the snouts not looking as cool with slotted nostrils.

The conceptual Outlet Wall by Ironic Sans is by far the most smartest thing I've seen in awhile. I mean, it's a wallmade of outlets. Plenty of room for everything. Just don't show this little power-hungry bastard or he'll be humping it for days. And you know what? So what ... / Continue →

To harness hamster power, the scientists sewed e... / Continue →
