Last year, PSFK published an article on Quirky, the “social product development company” that relies on its user base for its products’ designs. They have now designed a new product and are close to starting its production. The Pivot Power, proposed by design student Jake Zien, is an adjustable electrical power strip that flexes around into circular, semi-circular, and zig-zag shapes to give access to all the power adapters hooked onto it without blocking space for any of the others. Pivot Power has six individually articulated power outlets, a surge protection feature and comes in both American and European versions.
