Saving energy never looked so good! Discovered on Yanko Design, these sleek white Energy Saving Adapters by designer Giles Belley are said to reduce the energy consumption of electronics left in standby mode in half. Each module corresponds to a device and when energy is being wasted, a layer of light will glow on the surface of the adapter. This light is intended to warn the user that unnecessary energy is being used and that they should turn off the device. If it does not get turned off, the adapter will automatically shut it down after three minutes. An ingenious design, but somewhat worrisome for a person like me who leaves unsaved work open while my laptop is asleep and prays it doesn't shut down!
