Electricity use

filed under: @ 19:18:02 by 7colors

In objects typical of the domestic or personal sphere, such as lamps, refrigerators, mobile phones, energy is often left either to the user's own devices (in the choice, for instance, of a light bulb or brand) or it is an invisible aspect of ongoing product experience that shows up in periodic electricity bills, when power runs out or is shut off. Electricity, as a product, is easily reduced to an abstract, invisible phenomenon whose only concrete representations are two holes in the wall. In a series of design examples, we explore how everyday products might be designed to better express - and thus stimulate reflection on - daily or long-term patterns of energy use.

Static

A nice idea. In my opinion, anything that helps people to understand how much waste goes on daily is welcome.
