What do you think? A solution to too many power strips or an alternative to wall paper?

At least 40 circuits required if you do that in Canada. Limit of 12 outlets per circuit.

Thats unreal, but I like it!

Colored plates on the live ones and you can even create pixel pictures with the real outlets!

I can imagine the conversation in the chat room:
Reno: I wonder ....
The administrator: Don't even think it!
