As chargers and power adapters--and the number of gadgets we carry--become ever more unwieldy, a solution like the Cute Cube is going to be less a luxury than a necessity. A necessity that is just adorable!

It's just a concept for now, but it's a Red Dot Design Award-winning concept, which will hopefully help give it some legs. The Cute Cube has rotatable jacks that can accommodate up to six chargers or plugs of any shape, along with indicator lights that tell you which plugs are occupied. Having just spent a week battling with power strips in a far-off land, I'm more than ready to get Cubed.
