Power Conservation

March 12, 2008

I saw this concept design for power conservation and loved the design of it. Since everyone is talking these days about how you should turn off everything to avoid “phantom” energy use, this would be wonderful if you could purchase it.

This adapter displays useless energy consumption due to standby mode and automatically turns off office equipment that are left on unnecessarily. Each module corresponds to a device and monitors its power supply independently. If a device is in standy mode a layer of light glows, signaling for the user to turn it off. If the user doesn’t respond, it will automatically turn it off after three minutes.

Until they come out with this, we’ll have to make due with Belkins Conserve Surge Protector. Which actually isn’t out till this summer, but least it has a release date, and it’s not near as design blog worthy, but it does come with a remote for what that’s worth.
