LAS VEGAS--ThinkEco's modlet is a plug equipped with a Zibgee radio that can communicate with a PC through a USB key. The system can track how much energy electronics use with the modlet and let people schedule things to turn off at set times. It lets people cut down on wasted power when things are left on but aren't being used or by eliminating stand-by and vampire power. A consumer product, priced at $50, is due this spring.
