Pod Power is a clever upgrade to the classic extension cord, delivering electricity to a group quickly, easily, and with less clutter.
If you’ve ever set up an impromptu workspace with a group, the most painful part is often powering everybody’s stuff from, say, one relatively immobile power strip. Pod Power sends juice to cute little outlets for a group of people, and each outlet’s bobbin shape allows you to adjust the cord length between outlets. (Apparently sliding clips also make adjusting the length easier.) You can mount each outlet for permanent use, or you can keep it mobile for your mobile workstation.
Currently Pod Power is $35 in pre-order on invention site Quirky (it’s kind of like Kickstarter). Once it gets its first 2,000 orders (which seems very likely), it’ll go into production. The site won’t charge you until Pod Power is real and shipping.
UPDATE: Quirky changed the landing page since this morning, and it no longer appears to have a purchase price. It’s unclear if that means they’ve hit the 2,000 commitments (I’m guessing that’s it), but apparently you may now have to wait to purchase one.
