While it's not entirely clear how it works, industrial design student Andreas Zachariah claims that his Carbon Hero concept device here will one day keep tabs on your carbon footprint, and he's taken home a prize at the BSI Sustainability Design Awards for his efforts. Supposedly, the device uses "sophisticated sensors" to automatically identify the various forms of transportation you make use of "by virtue of their relative location, velocity and the pattern of their activity." That information then gets offloaded onto a PC or cellphone where you can track just how wasteful your are and calculate the number of carbon offsets you need to purchase to make up for it -- just don't hold your breath for getting one anytime soon.
