A year from being big…
Gene Wang has outdone himself. He has created a device that can monitor your appliances.
“What that means is that you could monitor your microwave, Playstation and coffee machine in real time, check their levels of energy consumption, and make apps to control how they behave. Ultimately, that could lead to substantial savings of energy and money.”
This isn’t a “take out of the box and turn the switch on” sort of device. So 99% of the population (including myself) can’t really do much w/ it yet. But my prediction is give it a year , maybe less, and there will be an “easy to use” way of creating software to control and monitor your appliances and machines.
