We were already fans of the Rotaliana MultiPot
, which disguised a device-charging station and a lamp as a flowerpot, but we tend to charge our devices in the bedroom -- which means the company's new MultiBook is even more useful. Appearing at first to be just another hardcover book, the MultiBook opens to reveal several plug outlets and a lamp, and also features an alarm clock with a concealed display on the spine. That pretty much covers all the bedside bases -- but given the surprising violence with which we greet our alarm clock every morning, it might be best to keep all this stuff separate. Only available in a 220V version right now for €152 ($222), no word on when it might come stateside.
