The Belkin Conserve Smart Energy-Saving Power Strip is a “smart” power strip that cuts all power to devices non-energy needing devices, while continuing to supply electricity to things low-awareness devices, like DVRs. When the TV is turned off the strip knows to shut off power to other devices (DVD player, home-theater system) that are plugged into it as well, avoiding "vampire" power leakage ($30).

This next eco gadget kills two birds with one stone! Store the energy generated by the rear wheel of your bicycle whenever you go for a ride exercise. Once the RollerGen Battery BOS is full, you can use it to power your gadgets through a couple of USB ports.  A bit pricer than the others, at $135, but worth it in coolness points.

Pretty fascinating gadgets. I think I like the light bulb as a mini terraium the best though. ;^)

No really the one that uses your bike ride to power to store energy to use in other gadgets is awesome.
