I don’t mean ‘put on stand-by’ but actually turn it off!
My previous statement makes more sense when you take into consideration thatÂ devices left on stand-byÂ consumes aroundÂ 15% of domestic electricity.
So,Â in order toÂ reduce this bad habit, Rachel Turner, a UK designer has put forward this simply brilliant conceptÂ which goes by the name ofÂ Standby Monster.
Inspired by the fear of that monster,Â you know, that lurksÂ in the dark and/or under your bed.
It’s a small plastic lens with a sticky back-surface that’s shaped like monster eyes.
Just stick it over the standby light and you’re left with evil eyes glaring at you when you turn off your lights before going to bed.
Will you be able to sleep soundly knowing that there’s a bunch of eyes glowing away around your abode?
Hopefully this will force you to turn off those evil eyes via the wall socket.
Standby Monster is of courseÂ made from recycled materials. 🙂
