Node Power Outlet – Solving Your Home Outlet Shortage

node power outlet

The Node Power Outlet is clever and useful at the came time.  MetaPhys of Japan has created a new style of electrical outlet which gets rid of many of the problem of traditional outlets. The two dual grooves curving around the wall plate are live with electricity in every inch. You can plug-in your lights, chargers, and other gear at any spot. Think about how much easier this could make like with your cell phone charger, MP3 charger, and other plug-in devices. The will not consume the entire outlet by covering up the other plug, since the other plug is the entire wall plate.

Currently these Node Power Outlets are only being sold in Japan, but you can grab one through the MetaPhys website, if you can read Japanese. Some people worry about the safety of this unique plug-in system, but in reality it is just a safe as any other outlet.  It would still require inserting something into the outlet to get shocked.  The only difference is the amount of outlet space available.  In some ways these stylish outlets may be less prone to grabbing your child’s attention.

    Well, you
    know how lotsa plugs have three pins? The two flat ones and then the
    round one below that? This doesn’t have a place for the round one, which is there as a safety measure.

    If someone needs to plug a three-pin cable in, they may resort to a three-to-two adapter, which is commonly misunderstood and still cannot be used properly with this outlet. In this case, it would disconnect the third pin and turn the device into a potentially lethal one.

    It did say that it was created in Japan, so here is what their AC outlets look like… only two pronged. I’m sure it wouldn’t be very difficult to adapt a North American styled three-prong outlet, if an electrical-savvy chap had the intent… however, I bet there is a patent on their design so don’t plan on mass-marketing without the creator’s consent.
