This year I've made a resolution to be more conscious about the energy I use and how wasteful I am. Sure, I might just be on an anti-eWaste Earth Day high, but I really would like to do my part and lower my electricity bill. Enter DIY KYOTO's small wonder Wattson, a sleek and chic tracking device that enables you to learn about your own personal energy use through interactive play. The Wattson, which looks a bit like the wii console, shows the power being used across the home, and reacts instantly to any changes with colors and watt readings.
The Wattson gives you the information and understanding you need to take action to reduce your energy consumption and costs, says the creator. The system measures total electricity entering the house and displays this value on an easy to understand display. As we all know, a house's electrical system is made up of several circuits, such as ring mains, lighting circuits and cooker circuit, all of which are connected together at the fusebox, which is where Wattson measures the total electrical power entering the home.
