Power Bar With Remote Fighter Pilot Switch

Power Strip by Dave's Geeky Ideas

(Note: I posted this four years ago, but I am re-posting this today with new art and fancier words.) 

I use a power bar for my computer and junk, and on a few occasions I have accidentally tripped its red switch with my foot. I thought, why can’t that switch be tethered remotely? Something I can place on my desk within arm’s reach. And voila, this concept was born.

However my clumsiness inspired the addition of a protective cover for the switch, so I dreamed up this switch design that belonged inside a fighter jet. I feel it would look cool on your desk. Or would it look too cool? The temptation to press it might be overwhelming.

Power bar manufacturers: this design is not beholden to any intellectual property (e.g. Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters), so please run with it if you want.
