With electronics everywhere these days, plugs can be at a premium. Who hasn’t had the experience of searching for a wall outlet, only to find it occupied by a gigantic power cord blocking access to the other socket ?

Thanks to designer Kim Gerard, we now have the ingenious 360 Electrical Rotating Duplex Outlet. Each socket rotates a full 360 degrees, allowing endless configurations, and most importantly, the ability to fit two bulky power cords in the same outlet.

Terrific, simple design solution – a little change with big results.
