The Current Chameleon Helps Kids Monitor Their Real-Time Energy Usage
It’s hard to get today’s kids pumped up about anything that doesn’t feature a flashing screen or a fun shape. So to shift those young eyes from the latest video game over to the merits of energy consumption, designer Elle Tweedy created the Current Chameleon, a house-shaped device that quantifies a youngster’s energy use by tracking, analyzing and making sense of the data. Using a series of wireless transmitters, the Current Chameleon charts, in real time, the power draw of each electronic device it is affixed. The energy device also features a reward system, paying out points for energy saved and keeping kids engaged.
