I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

Can you curl electricity?
A piece of roccoco cast iron? Curls cut from a dark haired Rapunzel? Medusa's snakes? No, it's an outlet multiplier.
You can unfurl the locks to extend the power to where ever you want.
Made by Artecnica, it doesn't seem to be on sale anywhere yet -- but wait 6 months and I think it would be available at a number of places online.
Thanks to Tangelia for pointing this out on DesignSponge.

That is beautiful! I hope that one day they'll make it for English plugs.
