Hello, my name is René
Bühling and today I want to show you an experiment we
are currently working on using these devices. They just work like any socket in your home. You can plug any electric device into it and the socket will then detect
how much energy is consumed by the connected device. Each few seconds the data is transported
wireless to our server where a user profile is created
and visual feedback is given to the user in form of a virtual garden. Why do we do that? We want to motivate people
to save energy by making their daily behaviour influence the health of a virtual life form like
a plant or a tree. Let’s see how this actually works… Hey, checkout this! [Student talks about the tree
