The portable and wireless Wattson. Lost at E Minor

UK-based design firm DIY Kyoto has come up with a clever plan to allow homeowners to visibly see how much energy they are using in their home at any given moment.

Wattson, a portable and wireless device, hooks up to the main fuse box of any home and a bright display shows how much energy is being used in either in watts or cost over the past 28 days.

The program also allows the user to put the information online in a community, where ideas about saving electricity are shared.
