“No one knows what Khosla plans to do with the land [at Martin’s Beach], but everyone has a theory—the term ‘McMansion’ figures prominently, alongside guesses about luxury hotels and exclusive nature preserves.”
From “Bummer Beach”

SnapRays Guidelight - Wall outlet cover with integrated LED nightlight

It’s called the SnapRays Guidelight and it’s genius! The SnapRays Guidelight has a built-in sensor that activates the nightlight and according to its Kickstarter page, the nightlight-outlet only consumes $.10 of electricity per year. Also, the Guidelight cuts out the middleman (a separate nightlight) and it’s expected to last up to 25 years. One more bonus: the SnapRays Guidelight snap-installs in seconds and doesn’t require re-wiring. [Gizmodo]

Sprāv – The Wireless Smart Shower Meter That Will Tell You When To Get Out. [Video]

Sprav - The Smart Shower Meter.Ok, who’s in for shortening their next shower? For the few that did raise their hands, Sprāv is the product for you. Designed by students from Case Western Reserve University, Sprāv is a wireless water meter that gives you control of your water and energy consumption. Sprāv attaches to the arm before your shower head and uses green, yellow and red lights to let the shower taker know how long they’ve been showering. The goal of the changing lights is to encourage users to shorten their showers.

We’ve seen shower shorteners in the past (ie Waterpebble) but what makes the Sprāv different is its ability to track your shower and instantly report to you how much you are saving by changing your showering habits.

Sprāv is now on Kickstarter. [Sprāv]
