Ecostrip Power Bar Coming to North America

Here is a great idea for lazy and forgetful slugs like me: a power bar with a USB connection to your computer, so it detects when the computer is turned off, and then shuts down all of the peripherals.

"We set out to design a product that reduces energy waste," said Bjarne Waedeled, President of Centritech Limited in a press release, "And, because it functions like any other power strip, there is no education of the consumer required."

One still has to have the presence of mind to turn off the computer, but it is still a terrific idea. Via ::Ubergizmo
