Developed with Sunnie Sang over 4 weeks for our Crafting Interactions course, Zooly is an informative energy tracking app for household appliances. We propose that it be provided by local power companies as a way to help families conserve energy and money and have built the app off the concept of energy disaggregation, which takes a whole-home energy signal and separates it into its component appliances.
Zooly puts a playful spin on energy tracking by visually personifying home appliances as living, breathing pets in a menagerie of sorts. They can be healthy, sick, a vampire, or a ghost and hopefully, they prompt the owners to be more mindful of the way they use their appliances. In our prototype, we specifically focused on 3 parts of the Zooly experience: 1) how to add a new appliance 2) how to monitor all appliances 3) how to look into a specific appliance.
