Behouden Power Meter by Thomas J Owen

We have shown a number of energy management devices like the Kill-a-watt- most are utilitarian and without much thought to how they look. British designer Thomas James Owen proposes the Behouden wall clock/power display - it reads the electrical consumption of the house and displays it in kilowatt-hours and pounds sterling. It is made from fully recycled and recyclable materials.

The clock would be "sold with replacement BUS standard fuses that will directly replace the existing ones in the fuse box. These fuses contain an electronic system that records the amps that flow through them. The data is sent to the clock via a wireless system that interprets this into a monetary value" ::Thomasjowen
