Eubiq power strip

by Marc

As we were coming to the end of the Ideal home expo yesterday we stumbled upon these guys with a pretty unique offering. It’s hard to make out from the photo but that rail is a power distribution system. Each of those components (a standard UK socket, a light and two direct wire plug replacements at each end) can clip onto the center rail at any point and receive power. …
