Peter Russo and Brendan Wypich of Stanford University developed the SmartSwitch, a light control with tactile feedback that helps you "see" how much energy is already being used, whenever you try to flick the switch. If the total energy consumption in the house is low, the SmartSwitch is easy to flip. But if the consumption is higher, the SmartSwitch is physically harder to flip, thanks to a brake pad within the mechanism. The idea is that people will use this tactile feedback to decide if they really really need that light on or not.
A number of big name US cable companies are looking to offer online companion packages to their pay-TV subscribers. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that top cable providers (namely Comcast and TWC) and TV networks are looking to assemble a large collection of online programming and deliver it only to subscribers. According to Reuters these projects could become available as early as this summer. The cable companies are hoping these services take a chunk out of the growing number of people watching online services like Hulu.
