Wet Circuits may sound like a porn-site for robots, but it is in fact a store dedicated to a waterproof power-strip. The $40 strip, seen doing its stuff in the video above, has a few tricks up its sopping-wet sleeve to prevent you from electrocuting yourself when plugging things in.
The strips are sealed and the conductive parts are coated to stop them coming into contact with water. The power only flows to the plug when the pins are fully and correctly inserted. This has the pleasant side-effect of allowing your kids to poke paperclips into the socket in safety, and also cutting the risk of sparks. There is also a cut-out which cuts in at 100ºC (212ºF).
All this ignores the fact that you probably shouldn’t actually be plugging anything into the strip anyway: Your TV isn’t going to be any safer when perched on the end of your bathtub if used with this adapter. In this regard it seems about as practical as a pair of bulletproof contact-lenses.
So, a website with a “Dr” Jolin pouring water onto electrical outlets and conducting snuff-tests with deadly current, all on video? Maybe this is a porn-site for robots after all.
