Lego My ‘Lectricity: Cool Modular Office Power Strip

Don’t you hate it when you need to unplug one gadget from a crowded power strip and you find yourself sifting through tangled cords, trying to track down the one you need? Designer Soon Mo Kang hates it, too, and so the Multi-Tab Power Strip was born.

The innovative power strip isn’t a huge leap from the power strips most of us use right now, but it has a few important differences. Each tab features a picture of the device that’s plugged into it, giving you a much easier time when trying to disconnect one or more appliances.

The modular tabs connect Lego-style, letting you make your own power strip that’s as big or as small as you need it to be. The tabs also feature rocking faces, so pushing on one end will push the plug out of the outlet, disconnecting the power. The overall aesthetic is a huge improvement over the functional-but-ugly power strips present in most homes today.
