The other day we told you about upgrading your power sockets into “smart” plugs, but how about updating the actual design of the socket? Node, a concept design for futuristic wall units might replace not just normal sockets, but also the need for surge protectors. Included in the promotional photos are hinged plugs, allowing for the maximization of space. I can’t wait to see the version of this for 3-pronged plugs or any number of foreign plug configurations.
