The Power Block - good idea, bad execution

If first impressions were the most important thing this product would be screwed. This device is created to hide your cords, it looks pretty much like it's made out of cardboard or poster board. At least it isn't just a screen, it is also a power strip as well.

I honestly thought the thing was made of cardboard upon first glance. I also think that the device itself is extremely unattractive, I'd very much prefer the cords lying around to this thing. All around it's just a mediocre design.

To make things worse the price is completely and utterly ridiculous. This truly sad power strip is being sold for $165. I'm really curious how anyone actually thought this was a good idea, I suspect alcohol was involved.
