Power Plant

In response to the disconnect many consumers feel between energy use and environmental impact, we created a mechanical plant that would be linked into the user's home power grid. Like watering a plant, the Power Plant will prompt the user to check in every day to see how your energy use is comparing to your past use and your neighbor's. This data will be visualized in terms of the plant physically dying for excessive energy use, and returning to good health when use is improved. When the leaves are touched, the plant greets the user and offers advice on how to improve energy efficiency. This model was built with Arduino technology and has or mimics all functionality.
