Confession time. I can't stop looking at my Wattson. Before you ask who--or more specifically what--that is, this spiffy-looking device that's just reached Singapore shores helps keep track of your power consumption.
For those in Asia where meter watching is relatively new, this would probably sound obsessive-compulsive. However, what's compelling about the U.K.-designed Wattson is that it measures your energy usage in real time. So there's something almost hypnotic about watching your wattage flip up or down whenever you turn on or off a switch somewhere in your home.
