I'd like to see that "plug with a hole" concept become more popular. :Thmbsup:

Lot's of cool-looking stuff there, but the only thing that strikes me as genuinely useful is the "plug with a hole" :)

The donut power strip does alleviate the "wall-wart problem", but situations where that would be normally be a problem, it would add cable management hell instead. Could be useful in open-room offices or at LAN parties, though.

The baseboard "picket fence" idea was also pretty clever. Relatively easy to implement as a homebrew project too. But I'd skip the pointed tops and just go with a rounded or flat shape and put the wire slots more like 6"-8" (or 150-200 mm) apart.

The modular (E-Rope) powerstrips would be great for eliminating the 2nd strip with one thing plugged into it that always seems to arise with either warts or lots of peripherals. I may look into getting some of those.


I can't figure out where to buy these things :(
