learn about energy usage with a wristband

Over November I started a new project about electrical energy usage. It’s not my first attempt at energy awareness – if you’ve been here before you might have seen the cursive data project that used robots to draw metaphors of energy usage.(video explanation). 

The change of approach here is to create a useful tool to learn about energy usage, rather than create an inspirational moment that might set you on the path of learning.

I’m hosting the project over on github, which is where you’ll find code, schematics, pcb, project logs etc.

Right now, I’m testing the idea’s feasability at home with my family over Christmas. If you’re interested and would like to help test, please get in touch.
