Over the last few years, the popularity of smart meters has grown substantially. Something else that has seen massive growth in use are online social networking and role-playing games. Recognizing what a powerful tool both of these can be Stanford Professor Byron Reeves (a specialist in psychological processing of media) has decided to design a computer game that encourages productive use of smart meters. His prototype will connect a virtual world, where players interact and compete, with the real data of home, building, and city energy consumption. The hope is for more motivated citizens, higher efficiency in energy use, and more saved money. This article contains a YouTube demo video well worth your time.

As our college emphasizes the development of new energy sources and pursues means by which we can reduce our own energy consumption, it is important that people educate themselves on what kinds of systems are providing them with energy and utilities in the first place. Carleton offers an excellent opportunity to see very large systems, unfortunately these opportunities are underutilized by students.
