Got more than 2 devices that need plugging into the wall and you’ll need a power strip.  But how unsightly and perhaps even dangerous if you’ve got kids dashing through the house.

The Node 12050 Electric Outlet eliminates the need for a power strip, though it will occupy much more wall space.  However, given it’s minimalist lines it should blend into almost any setting, provided your house wasn’t built in the 17th or 18th century.

Currently the Node is in the conceptual phase, though the designer, Metaphys, does sell actual products.  So keep an eye out, because if it was up to us, these would’ve gone on sale at Home Depot yesterday.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
