Power Point is designed to make visible the amount of power being consumed by each mains socket in a direct and immediate way.

By utilising a technology called X10 to send information through existing power cables, Power Point can pass information about patterns of power consumption to a central database.

Over time, the product is intended to change patterns of power use by creating awareness of how much power individual appliance draws. Leading users to re-evaluate how they consume power.
