Wireless power/extention cords...anyone tried using these?

Hi. I'm looking for a simple way to send power wirelessly over a small distance of about 4ft. I ran across this *Wireless Extension Cord gadget from Thinkgeek.com for $35 and was wondering if any of you have used this or any similar device?

I wanna plug a multi-outlet surge protector on the receiving end with only around 3 things plugged in....

1)My laptop
2)An external USB HD
3)A router -or- a small sound card amp.

What do you think? Will it work?

Try adding it to your shopping cart, and see what happens.
