Tweet-a-Watt: Twittering Your Home Energy Use

Tweet-a-Watt: Twittering Your Home Energy Use

Just when we were finally getting the hang of Twitter and, simultaneously, considering one of those Kill-a-Watt gadgets, someone goes and slaps the two together.

And, although it is technically way over our heads, we still think it's a great idea.

Why would you want to have a Kill-a-Watt that wirelessly publishes your home energy use to the web? Well, you might not. But if you're the type of person who loves Twitter and geeks out over monitoring your own energy use -- then this is probably right up your alley.

The device, literally hacked from an off-the-shelf Kill-a-Watt, is the design of ladyada and an entry in this year's Greener Gadgets competition.

Would you use something like this? Get all the details here.
