Nascent Objects has teamed with Shock Top (yes, Shock Top the beer company) to develop and debut a new, modular water conservation device called the Droppler. Its simple white housing holds a pair of microphones that have been trained to recognize the sound of running water. You simply place it next to a sink, toilet or shower and as you use those utilities, the light bar on the front of the device will slowly decrease, giving you a quick and easy visual reference for how much water is moving through your faucets. It also uploads that data to an associated iOS or Android app. Armed with that information, users can more easily change their water use habits.
