Power Strips That Fit Anywhere

Power strips are great, but they can also be a pain. The big power blocks often block the other outlets, limiting the number of devices you can hook up.
For those that wish someone would shape them differently (or build something adjustable) your prayers have been answered: Pivot Power. It’s basically a power strip that folds to allow the plugs enough space to fit more than three things at a time. Cost: $29.99, not much more than a typical high-end model from Belkin.
It's available from Quirky.com, a site that features products by inventors (in this case, Jake Zien of Milwaukee).
