This power strip turns off unused gadgets
When you were a kid, did your parents always hassle you about turning off the lights when you left a room? Well now that you have your own place, you probably understand exactly why they would tell you that. What’s more is that you also likely have a lot of gadgets around your desk that still use power even when you’re not using them. This is why Watt Stopper created the Isole IDP-3050.
This rather ordinary-looking power strip is designed to save power by shutting off gadgets when you aren’t around. The small wired box is actually a passive infrared sensor which will kill power to most of the outlets when you aren’t around.
Two of the outlets are not controlled by the sensor, which would be ideal for plugging in your PC. You can also program how long it will wait before shutting off power. It can be anywhere from 30 seconds to 30 minutes. It will likely take a while for your investment to pay off though, this power strip will set you back $90. Either way, you’re saving the environment, right?
