Energy Aware ClockSwedish designers Loove Broms, Karin Ehrnberger, Sara Ilstedt Hjelm, Erika Lundell and Jin Moen came up with the idea for this clock-style energy monitor to go on your wall. The monitor collects data for energy usage in its vicinity and logs it on its face as time goes by. The more energy being consumed, the larger the diameter of the pattern. You're able to see how much was used at 1 PM, 1:15 PM, 2 PM and so on by glancing at it. Simply making people aware of their energy consumption has been shown to immediately curb their consumption by up to 15%, so putting energy data in obvious places is a big part of our sustainable future. This clock shows just how simple it can be to provide practical information in beautiful ways.
