I think that everyone has the same problem when it comes to power strips. Usually, you never have enough plugs for everything that you want to plug in. So you buy another one to plug it into the first and then on. You end up with a mix of cables and strips that don't make sense and that are quite literally a mess. Unless you unplug everything, you have to find some way to manage. It's not always a pretty sight. The Movable Power strip is something new that will actually attempt to deal with your cable mess.

Usually when you add new appliances or electronic gizmos, you face a quandary as to where to plug it in. Believe me I know that the wretched cable squid always makes an appearance, especially when you least expect it. Here at Unplggd, we believe in keeping things nice and tidy, no messy wires. That's why the Movable Power strip looks really handy. It's a power strip that can change according to your needs.

According to designer Jeff Carter, it allows you to customize your power strip instead of adapting your space with your power needs. That's smart thinking. I think that this is a great idea. The only problem would be with safety features. Personally, I like having cutout switches and fuses as well as power protection-like devices included in my most important power strips. Even though they are more expensive, they allow you to not have to worry about a power spike ruining your precious electronics. [via Yanko Design]
