Zap ugliness: Hide those power outlets with Inlet covers

Isn’t it strange that we still use household power outlets that were popularized about a century ago? How much longer do we have to put up with this antiquated, multi-prong mess of spaghetti wires?

Well, 120-volt AC power outlets aren’t going away anytime soon, but here’s an idea that can make them less ugly — and less dangerous for young children.

Inlet by LivingPlug is a sleek, customizable cover for the standard duplex electrical outlet. It’s part of a $25,000 Kickstarter campaign that winds up next week.

In addition to three safety outlets on its side, it has a USB charging dock and a kill switch that shuts off Inlet completely. That can prevent appliances sucking on the grid when they’re off.
