And no, I did not copy them. : )
(This isn't exactly a very 'unique' idea anyway)
Revolve | Power Strip - - Use it vertically or horizontally
- Large plugs can be plugged in with ease by just rotating each socket.
- Extend it vertically by adding another unit on top
bassglow - Fashion wrist band for club generation. Coloured part (electroluminescence) of the band glows at different intensity, reacting to the surrounding noise level. Specifically designed to synchronise with bass and beat sounds in order to acheive distinct glow effet to music and avoid constant fuzzy glowing.

- 3V lithium coin cell battery is used (CR2032)
- Theoretical battery life over 10 hours
- Adjustable sound sensitivity

  • Uniquely identifiable keys- all the time keeping the visuals clean- are a great idea. Check out fellow designer Timo Wong's execution of this concept, its under projects, entitled 'cells' http://www.timowong.com/

  • @Eugene thanks for your comment. Yes, I have come across his clean cellphone design before I began this project. While I really like the clean keypad design of his 'cell', both in terms of aesthetics and supposed tactility, half the keys are essentially shaped the same (i.e. dented ones and bumped ones). I tried to address this issue of several keys having the same shape.

  • nice idea of creating a rotating power strip... it seems so much more functional and flexible to use than one that is fixed
