Check out the new prototype from Japanese product designer Chiaki Murata. Can you figure out what it is?
It’s actually an electrical outlet! By rethinking your conventional 2-hole outlet, the designer has created an aesthetically pleasing and functional new product that allows you to plug in appliances wherever you want (Horizontally, vertically, even diagonally)!!

Chiaki Murata is most known for these 2 highly acclaimed designs:

Although in Japanese, all products can be purchased through his website!
