Very Cool Power-Hog Piggy Bank
Check this out!
A power-consumption-metering piggy bank is designed to educate children about the energy cost associated with running electronics devices.
Plug the Power-Hog Pig tail into the outlet and the device into the snout; feed a coin to meter 30 minutes of use. Kids can use their allowance to turn on the TV or video game by feeding the Power-Hog with loose change.
The Power-Hog meters consumption and blinks red when time is running out. It also helps parents meter the amount of time spent watching the tube.
