CES 2016: Control Your Own Consumption

California-based Nascent Objects presented Droppler, a water monitoring device that displays consumption through an app using sound and light. When placed near the faucet and using an advanced audio sensor system, the Droppler can recognize how much water is spent simply by listening to the water flowing. Each day, the user enters a water budget on the app. The external light strip appears full, shrinking as water is used. An audible signal indicates when the budgeted quantity has been reached.  This allows the user to track consumption in real time and change habits as desired.

The real magic comes from Nascent’s modular electronics platform, enabling the Droppler to be transformed into another device. The company says the user can upgrade and customize the unit with other modules, turning it into a camera, for example.
