These prototypes suggest a new type of interface for electrical outlets and switch plates, making the process of acquiring energy more informative and procedural. These smart plates could give you information about the total amount of power you are using in your home in a pleasant and poetic way. The plates would open and close their tentacles like sea anemones to welcome or warn you about your electricity usage. Another type of plate would change its glowing intensity in order to give the same feedback.
