Design Concept: Electrici-tree

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

This design concept for an unusual power strip was cast from tree branches, separating each receptacle to make way for those oversized wall warts. The back of each socket is magnetized so you can tack it onto anything metal. Along with the design comes a bit of tree-hugging eco-porn:

"Electrici-tree is a physical representation and reminder of how much electricity we are using. Its organic aesthetics are a gentle reminder of the nature around us, and what we are polluting with our over-use of power."

Yeah, perhaps that is something we should think about every day. Maybe they'll actually manufacture these things before all the electricity is gone.
