It isn't out just yet. But when it is launched in a couple of months, this device will be useful in the studio. Basically it monitors the computer's standby mode and when it sees it kick it, it switches off the other accessories (like printers, scanners, etc). It also has the ability to take immediate action when a power surge occurs. The Dutch inventors think it will save around 40 Euro per year in energy costs, per workstation. Companies in Holland can also apply for a subsidy to have such devices installed. Watch this space, or check the website for more details.
