In response to a dire California drought, we designed Water Watcher, a device for monitoring and reporting water consumption as it happens: at our sinks. This concept product provides an on-the-spot, ambient display of how much water is actually being used. With an ‘indicator’ at the sink connected to an easy-to-install monitor and an app to provide meaning for the consumption data, Water Watcher could help save thousands of gallons of water a year.
