Power-Hog for a Monitored Energy Usage

Keeping your family member aware of the energy consumption with the electronic gadgets you have at home is a good way of saving energy usage. The Power-Hog, one of the entries for Greener Gadgets 2009, is a power consumption-metering device in the form of a piggy bank. User will plug the tail to the outlet and the device to the piggy’s snout. To use the electronic device, one will feed a coin to meter 30 minutes of usage. Aside from saving energy consumption, the Power-Hog has an up cycling process using recycled PET that allows good performance at a cost level to less friendly materials, which made this product a true green gadget.
