PowerBridge: The Power Strip – Reinvented

Designed by Hyuk Jae Chang, The PowerBridge has to be one of the most elegant and brilliant re-invention of a power strip I’ve ever seen! This is definitely one of those things that makes you slap your forehead and say “Why didn’t I think of that?

  1. Cool idea only problem with that one would be almost all the stuff I plug in is 3 pronged and from the pictures it looks like those would be a pain to get plugged in to that version anyways.

  3. I fail to see how this is any kind of improvement over either a standard power strip, or better yet, the power squid. Does it look nice? Sure. At a functional level, it seems like a mess. No one has a bunch of flat cords that all need to go in the same direction like they do in that picture.

  5. That is very nice, but how many of us actually use those nice tiny little plug ins that aren't bulky power adaptors?

    A brilliant design should satisfy function first if it is to be useful.

  7. What's that white thing that looks like a strap goin g from the front to the rear on the bottom of it? I think it's the power cord going in but not certain. Actually, that's neat if it is; it looks like you can have the "in" cord come out from either side.

    To those complaining about it probably not handling bulky transformers, it looks like it could handle some if not most sizes of transformers, and it wouldn't block the adjacent plugs. The really bulky ones, well, there are few power strips out there that can handle those, getting a short extensions would take care of those, just like with a regular strip. It would have been nice to have a picture of a transformer plugged into it, to show how well it can handle those, however.
