Mac: Wondering what kind of impact your power and fuel consumption have on the environment? ECOBOT helps you figure it out.
ECOBOT is a free, open-source application that calculates how much fuel, paper and power you use during the course of a day to help keep you aware of how you can reduce your carbon footprint. The app tracks wireless networks you access to learn how much you’re travelling, and logs how much paper you use whenever you use your printer. ECOBOT also automatically calculates how much energy your computer uses, and you can manually add other appliances like video games and televisions.
ECOBOT runs on Adobe AIR but, strangely enough, can only be used on a Mac right now. Developers say a PC version will probably be developed “soon”.
