All AC power is provided from one single cord passing through the lower grommet in the back.

About the Designer
The flexible foam grommets allow users to route up to 10 cables and power cords off the edge of their desktop and into the enclosure.
The magnetically latched cover provides easy access to enable custom configurations.
The design includes a vented back to enable ample air flow around installed components.
Note: Airflow can be enhanced by adding an optional low-profile USB-powered exhaust fan.
Users can install a variety of existing products, including:
Multiple AC Power Outlets
Multiple USB Charging Strips
USB Exhaust Fan
UPS Backup Unit
Components are easily installed using commercial-grade Velcro® strips. Maximum depth for each component is 2.25 inches (57.28 mm).
Proposed design would include a UL listed power cord splitter like this one available here.
Also recommended would be a UL listed extension cord like this one. The cord is passed through the lower grommet and plugged into the nearest AC outlet for neat and discreet power.
Manufacturable using common metal fabrication methods with minor tooling required.
OBSCURE would be easily assembled by the user.
This means low-profile cartons for efficient palletizing, shipping and inventory management.
Proposed design would be available in
three beautiful finishes to compliment any decor.
