IR controlled power strip
Found this on gizmodo. This thing could be so useful. I’m not sure, but I’m hoping that each plug is controlled independently which would be great to physically cut power to things like my TV and receiver without having to pull a plug that’s hard to get to and still maintain power to the HTPC 24/7. I’m sure it could pay for itself in just a few months with energy savings.
The IR-Remote Control Power Strip lets you use universal remotes on any electronics, blinking lamps and speakers on and off with lazy precision.
