Standby is a beautifully-designed energy calculator that compares energy use of home appliances when in use, to consumption of energy when they’re on standby (powered on). In addition to the “gosh, I didn’t know that” factor it provides, this tool displays the information simply and beautifully, and even has a sense of humor. Try typing in an obscenely large number in any of the fields for some great feedback (hint: I guess my kids watch too many videos a week). Link courtesy of Infosthetics
