Unfortunately, it's still a concept, but Current State is amazing—behind its glowing, sexy UI, it's a real-time power management app that monitors consumption and lets you play with your power from anywhere. Devices are jacked in through plug-ends that bridge the plug and power socket, and after you sync everything, you can turn gear off and on or activate shutdown timers remotely. The monitoring app is pretty sophisticated too, showing you "hotspots" of suckage—I don't think there's an adapter for the Patriots yet, though. [The Greener Grass via Uberphones]
can I get that as a web-app or atleast a WiFi enabled device?
it would make much more sense that way - this is more like promoting laziness - unless you're one of those people that can say "my house is so huge I can't remember what is on where".
what are the bluetooth pairing limits of phones? how do you get a bluetooth signal to go further than 30 feet?
