The Bad High price will deter many home handymen and -women.
The Bottom Line The RoboReel is one of the most advanced and manageable extension cords around, but this heavy-duty system comes with a heavy-duty price.

Innovative power cord reaches deep into wallets
Essentially, the RoboReel is a $279 retractable extension cord, but it's a very cool $279 retractable extension cord. Allow me to explain.
Physically, Great Stuff's spherical RoboReel is about the size of a basketball, its bright safety-orange color completing the illusion. The plastic main unit is held in place by a metal frame, also orange, with a black nonslip coating applied where it will come into contact with the floor.
The main sphere can tilt up and down by a considerable amount -- about 180 degrees of freedom if you've got the clearance. The sphere is split into two hemispheres, a bottom half that is fixed and a top half that can swivel freely through 360 degrees of rotation.
