We are all trying to conserve electricity and energy in our homes. It's not always an easy thing to track. This cool looking ecological object is called Wattson and plugs itself into the electricity counter of your pad. It displays the electricity usage of your home, in real time thanks to LEDs, in kWh or dollars.

Wattson's color goes from blue to red the more energy you use. The goal is to reduce the amount of electricity you use, and it's been shown that Wattson helps to reduce the cost of your electricity bill by 5 to 20%. By its simple and efficient design, Wattson highlights parts of the days when we aren't really doing anything with electricity and we are still using it. It's available from Diykyoto for about $184.
