While home electronics advance, the basic extension cord has been slow to catch up.
This has created a size mismatch because today's devices tend to carry large size plugs, but the standard 6-outlet power strip is only meant for "skinny" ones.
Pictured at right: the solution.
Matching form and function, the ezSpace UFO provides 6 outlets in a recessed, circular pattern, eliminating the need for multiple power strips in a home or workplace environment.
In additon, the UFO's On/Off switch is located on its bottom instead of on top. This makes it far less prone to accidental shut-offs than a traditional power strip device.
The device retails for about $30.
