Set your power strip free!

I had been meaning to write about these devices for a long time, but I'll let Cory over at BoingBoing.net tell you instead. While the first device is much more showy (and probably much more expensive), the Power Strip Liberators can be used to reclaim outlets on your existing power strip.

Most perfect power-strip design EVAR

Cory Doctorow: This is the perfect power-strip design. Until the wonderful day arrives when all electrical adapters come with dainty little plugs and the wall-wart is a thing of the past, every power-strip in the universe should be replaced with one of these.

Update: Laura Lemay sez, "you can also just buy a bunch of Power Strip Liberators (5 for about $8-10) and accomplish the same thing to retrofit your existing power strips. Not as cool, though."
