Designed by Gilles Belley, this Energy Saving Adapter (ESA) not only saves you from power vampires but also gives you easy access to the strip in a smart, convenient and tidy way.
The ESA will clamp to your desk and comes with a wrap-up area for your cords. Gone will be the days when you need to crawl under your desk and deal with a nest of cords lying on the floor. Of course, the best feature is that it works like a smart power strip by cutting off power to devices that it detects as no longer be utilized. Electronic devices left plugged into the wall will continue to suck power even when turned off, about 10% of your electricity costs (hint to those wanting to save energy in July).
When the ESA detects the device has entered standby mode, it will flash a warning light for a few minutes and will cut off power to that device, unless you press a button on the specific module to cancel the shut off.
The ESA is only a concept at this time but shows big promise to catering to those wanting to save energy with design, taste and tidiness. I would definitely purchase this product when and if released.
