Surrealists rejoice: here's a power strip for you
This appliance looks like it stepped out of a painting full of melting clocks.
Are you one of those artsy-fatalist types who has a poster of Salvador Dali's The Persistence of Memory up on the wall? That's the "melting clock painting," also known as the backdrop of the 1938 cartoon short "Porky in Wackyland." (Yes, it's on YouTube.)
If so, we've found something perfect to further indulge your fantasies of things that appear to be melting into a puddle of surrealist goo. Called the "ElectriciTree," this stretchy power strip/extension cord is technically supposed to look like the branches of a tree to remind us of electricity's impact on the Earth, but I'm totally not seeing that one. Besides, the little sockets totally look like faces. It's a tad creepy, but in a good way. There's also an ingenious little feature involving magnets that makes them look like they're crawling up your wall, or melting off your wall, or however you want to put it.
Porky Pig would be proud. Oh, and Dali probably would be, too.
