The power bar has long been in need of reworking and a notably unique solution to such consistent inflexibility is the Any Shape-Shifting Socket. Not only does it offer the user the opportunity to space out his plugs to make room for big and awkward adapters, but it also allows him to dramatically alter the entire shape to suit its placement on or around pieces of furniture.

Under the instruction of Xiang Long Pan, students Zhi Qiang Wang, Zi Yu Li, Xue Xing Wu and Yue Hua Zhu designed the clay-inspired gadget with an unexpected malleability. What's more, it seems as though cables can be connected to the Any Shape-Shifting Socket absolutely anywhere by sticking the prongs right into the putty-like material. This would eliminate the inconveniences of international outlets and shortages of USB connections. Stats for Sculptable Power Strips Trending: Older & Mild
