Manodo's screen gives apartment dwellers the 411

Darren Murph

Those looking for another good reason to set up camp in Sweden have just found it. Okay, so maybe Manodo's oh-so-informative display isn't that astonishing, but it certainly gives a select few apartment residents in the country access to an enviable amount of information. Reportedly, the screen is being installed in several Swedish cities as part of a larger pilot project, and aside from dishing out details about the next available train, who exactly is standing outside their building and how much energy folks are currently consuming, it also serves up data on how many pounds of CO2 you're responsible for releasing while kicking back in your pad. Unfortunately, we're not sure if said solution is available en masse (or if it ever will be).
