The above image is a conceptual sketch of what could be the result at the end of my thesis. It is a pre-formatted display that visualizes your energy usage and that of your competitors in text. The inspiration comes from Biegert & Funk’s QlockTwo which won a red dot award in 2010. This means I can start making some phrases and word-combinations that I would like to display. Furthermore, I would like to make this display self-sufficient to create more awareness about energy usage.
For the consultation today I prepared some pages discussing inspiration, possible scenario’s and technical solutions. We didn’t decide yet which technological structure we are going to use. To get a good idea of the estimated costs, I’ll make some calculations of different scenarios in the near future.
