The Whole House-Off Switch is a switch that is exceedingly aptly named. A wonderful eco-idea, using the switch turns off all the power to your house, saving on both your bill and the environment. Made by designer Jack Godfrey Wood (eco-pun!) the concept was created to turn off all of the superfluous power going to your home during absences. For certain persons, like anyone living below 30° or above -30° latitude, this might prove to be bothersome. The the House-off Switch “was part of a larger project to encourage ‘green’ action among the environmentally disenfranchised.” It also mentions that it “Allows a user to turn off all non-essential electronic items in their home from a central switch,” so I don’t see you losing your refrigerator or clocks to this item…

But, as mentioned, this is only a concept at the moment with no firm plans for production.
