“that people would keep in their house, and it would measure energy consumption in the home, so how much electricy you’re using.”
Unfortunately it doens’t actually do that (sort of). I think she meant the PG&E Energy Orb which does, sort of (an Ambient Orb can subscribe to a PG&E demand-response channels). It gets wireless data from PG&E and glows in response to PG&E’s system-wide energy availability but it doesn’t tell me anything about my home usage.
I can’t get Al Gore’s call to “make the invisible visible” out of my consciousness and really want something like this for my house. Any pointers?
ps. Mr. Gore, can you stop by Mozilla next time you’re in Mountain View or Cupertino? We’re across the street from Google. Thanks!
