Electrical power monitoring - to let everyone dream bigger


  • 70






  • Summary

    We have previously had no way of measuring how much power we actually use, and therefore how close we are to the limit. Proposal is 2 monitoring points which show usage artistically with LED bar graphs (doubling as street lighting/art installation).

    Full description of the concept

    Full visualization of how much we actually use will let us relax the usage rules a bit this year and especially following years, enabling all your camps to burn a little bit brighter. Visualisation is on long Neopixel individually controllable LED strips, providing both data visualization and art and lighting.
    1 costs SEK4900, two SEK 9800 - at 3x63A, it has to be the proper, approved materials and that's just what it costs.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    Yes, if you are near Copenhagen/Roskilde

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? Throughput is 3x63A = 43470W, usage is about 30W

    • Will there be light? Yes. Long strips of Neopixel individually controlled LED light wil both show usage in an artistic way and provide light.

    • Safety implications Has to be made out of 100% prof approved materials.

    • What is your audio footprint? No.
