539. Bright Idea: Rotating Power Outlets September 24, 2007

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Product.

True Story: when I was in the airport last week, I was walking around the terminal looking for an outlet to charge my portable DVD player so I could watch Disc 2 of Heroes on the plane. I finally found one, obscured by the benches, at the same time a young lady came upon the same outlet, to charge her cell phone. I saw her charger adapter in her hand, and immediately knew we both couldn’t use the same outlet. So I moved on.

At that moment, we could have used this Bright Idea: Smarthome’s rotating power outlet. Only $10, buy it HERE; via Gizmodo.
