What if you could see your water usage patterns on a smartphone or iPad — would that motivate you to use less water? That’s what designer Marc Schömann hopes.
Schömann’s water meter checks water use and reports the information to your smartphone, tablet or computer. While the idea isn’t revolutionary, Schömann believes that the easier it is to check your water usage, the more likely you are to do so.
So rather than digging around to find past water bills, you’ll soon be able to get that info delivered to your phone while waiting in line at Trader Joe’s. The hope is that the more you pay attention to how much water you’re actually using, the less you’ll actually waste.
