Hi guys,

Not so long ago, we subscribed to an innovation contest and we decided to build an autonomous electrical prepaid socket (with Bitcoin) with an Arduino:

And today, here I come: a prototype / proof of concept has been built !

The electrical socket - BitPlug - is testable LIVE on via a Youtube LIVE event [just send some dust on the address and watch it move !]

We want to bring awareness on Bitcoin because we think there are a lot of disruption possible in the energy sector thanks to the Magic Internet Money.

This will be reviewed by a bunch of top managers during next week. There are 40 teams and the 10 best will be selected for a final presentation.

Imagine: you're somewhere in the world and you can activate an electrical socket in my home (Belgium) in real time (sorry for the 30 sec. delay of Youtube). Isn't it magic ? Smiley

The charges connected to the socket in the demo are:

- a toy (~ 10 W)
- a lamp (~ 5 W)
- a heater (~ 2000 W)

Material for the project:

- Arduino Uno
- Arduino Wifi shield
- Arduino LCD
- 1 Wattmeter
- 1 electrical relay

Any feedback ?
