Over obsessed with sexy products

I’m a tinkerer. I also to love to sit around and dream up plans for cool stuff. That’s probably why I love being a User Experience Designer. But very clearly there is a ying for everybody’s yang. Or maybe I should say everyone has a double edged sword, where your strengths can also be your weaknesses.

A while ago I became obsessed about making diy projects that have a professional look to them.  I kept thinking of little problems in my daily life that I’d want a cool solution to.  It wasn’t hard to think of a couple of nuanced things and decided my life could use a charging station for all things hand held.

First I searched to see what commercial products there were and indeed that solidifed my mind as to why I didn’t need to buy one. most of the cost anywhere between $20-$45. So I searched all my DIY blogs to find cool ways to make one makezine, hacked gadgets, gomistyle, instructables all provided neat examples.

Finally I had to sit down and ask myself…What is a charging station? Hmmmmmm.

Charging Station = Powerstrip.

Here’s pic of my DIY Charging station Cost $4.95.
