Every now and then, I see a product that actually makes me say, "Wow." right to my computer screen. Usually that product is something with an OLED screen or a super-fast processor. Today, however, it's a power strip. Or, to be more accurate, a power bridge.

According to Engadget, the Power Bridge was designed by Hyukjae Chang. The idea behind Chang's product is incredibly simple; remove the infuriating clutter that comes with most power strips by turning it upside-down.
The design of the Power Bridge looks like it will allow for a great deal of added simplicity in setting up a home office or entertainment system. The plugs can be easily fed through one end of the bridge, which keeps them from getting tangled up, or stepped on and yanked out of their socket by careless feet.
The Power Bridge also packs a couple of useful additional features. It has a "press and hold" power button, which makes accidentally shutting off the strip less likely. It also comes with a pivoting power cord, for better ease of installation, and indicator lights to let users know how much power the strip is using. On the whole, the Power Bridge sounds like a simple product that will make a lot of minor annoyances go away.

Unfortunately, the Power Bridge is just a prototype right now. We've got no information on exactly when we can look forward to this delightful little gadget hitting stores. Hopefully it won't take too long. The floor around my workstation is quickly becoming a hazard zone.
