\r\n\r\nGot 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. Sure, the best cable ties can clean up the mess a bit, but it doesn't change the fact that plugs are a trip hazard.\r\n\r\nThe Node 12050 Electric Outlet eliminates the need for a power strip, though it will occupy much more wall space. \u00a0However, given it's minimalist lines it should blend into almost any setting, provided your house wasn't built in the 17th or 18th century.\r\n\r\nCurrently the Node is in the conceptual phase, though the designer, Metaphys, does sell actual products. \u00a0So keep an eye out, because if it was up to us, these would've gone on sale at Home Depot yesterday.
