PowerZoa Would Be Great To Remotely Turn Off Your Stove

Why? Because you could use the device to remotely cut power to any gadget that is plugged in to an outlet.

It's only a prototype at the moment (one of many that have come out lately focused on saving energy), which probably explains why it still looks like a child's toy. Not a good idea when you consider that it sits between the wall outlet and the plug of your gadget. At any rate, PowerZoa transmits details on your power usage to a secure website, where you can use the interface to turn specific devices on or off.

Sooner or later something like this will be widely available, and there will be a mobile phone app that would allow me to control everything. And when that happens, I will be all over it. [Powerzoa via DVICE]
