Now that the technical exercise was completed I further calibrated the energy monitors and developed prototypes that could be evaluated. To help me evaluate the prototypes I used the “Heuristic Evaluation of Ambient Displays” proposed by Mankoff et al. I evaluated the “Flow of Water” (Fig. 1), “Colour” (Fig. 2) and “Level” (Fig. 3) prototypes.

Fig. 1 - Flow of Water Prototype

Fig. 2 - Level Prototype

Fig. 3 - Colour Prototype

From the evaluation I learned some very interesting advantages and disadvantages of all three prototypes and I will now use this knowledge to develop the prototypes further.
