If electricity is so important why are the power meters located near the roof-top and coated with dust for 12-months round the year? Can’t there be some ‘artistic indicator’? Well, here comes a magnificent example of spreading environmental concern using art coupled with technology!

Swedes are the lucky ones to use this FlowerPod counter: a semi-transparent screen with an electronic flower display that grows, blooms or wilts according on how smartly the residents of a home are using heating, cooling, water and electricity. Designed by the Danish Designnord group, the FlowerPod at present is a concept that they might present at 2009 post-Kyoto climate agreement talks to be held in Copenhagen next year.

The FlowerPod has been devised to collect input for all forms of energy: heat, water or electricity. It would be wirelessly connected to various meters and would produce output on the home-page of your Internet browser. So if your FlowerPod is blooming you are certainly playing a great role in saving environment. If FlowerPod wilts, you need not worry – it provides you the suggestions on where you should improve.
