Correlating with this February’s Greener Gadgets Conference held in New York City, Greener Gadgets and Core77 are launching the second annual Greener Gadgets Design Competition. The deadline for entry is only a little over a week away (on January 15), but this gadget here is one of the 2008 competition entries. Green revolutionaries know that unplugging appliances when not in use can save a considerable amount of energy over the course of months and years. This concept allows you to cut all energy flow to appliances without unplugging.

Hopefully there will be some equally exciting designs that come to fruition out of this years conference as well.
