Ambient & Artistic Visualization of Residential Resource Use

The following is a set of prototype demonstrations for use in a study concerning the design requirements for ambient and artistic visualization of residential resource use. Each design displays both real-time power (W) and cumulative energy use (Wh) values simultaneously. Note that in these demos, Watts do not accumulate toward the Watt-hours total. The values for these data points are directly linked to the sliders.
