A little "Joule reminder"

The Home Joule is an energy data display device that tells you how the price of electricity is changing, hour by hour. Plug this neat little device into any outlet and it displays a constang flow of data that includes your power usage, its price and even current weather conditions. The Home Joule is available in NY now, contact them if you're in another city.

ConsumerPowerline analyzes energy price and usage data to create signals that are meaningful to consumers, and then sends those signals to Ambient uses its patented technology to match up those signals with particular Home Joule devices and broadcasts the signals on a pager network. Just as messages to specific pagers go only to those users, so do the energy signals find their way to the right Joules.
