Strange. Sorry for the double post, folks. My browser crashed after the first time and ctrl-f5 didn't display the post once I reloaded this page. *grumble* Yay for paste buffers.

Photoshop. The shadow for each plug goes directly down, despite the angled nature of the shot. The shadows are also the same size for every plug, despite two being obviously a bit bigger. (The warts.) There is also no depth to the shadows at all. (Especially behind the TV.

Installing an outlet by itself doesn't consume power, so having this setup (with nothing plugged in) wouldn't increase your power bill... but certainly would decrease structural stability of the house... as each outlet in your home is anchored to a wall stud behind the sheetrock. In order to have that configuration (and knowing the size of the outlet boxes), the studs would have to be less than half the width (traditionally a 2x4) while being massively perforated by nails (several for each outlet)... not to mention the wires running through. So yeah, not only is it impractical, expensive to implement... it's also nearly structurally impossible.

They DO make junction box like arrangements that have several outlets condensed inside a small area that would fit within two studs of a standard framed house, though...
