How do you vote?

1.) Go to http://www.imaginecup.us/peopleschoice.aspx
2.) Click on “The Tesla Project”
3.) At the bottom rank us x-number of stars and submit your vote.

Please tell EVERYONE you know! We’re SO close to winning this, and we really need all of your guys’ help!

I will post video updates as the week goes on showing off our progress towards and during our stay in DC.
Technologies Used: CakePHP, .net C# (client), and tons of math!

We have significantly upgraded our project since the video mentioned earlier.

If you would like to be part of our testimonials at the competition please leave me a comment with your name and organization! You just need to discuss the value and importance of the Tesla Project!

Thanks! 🙂

The following video shows off Andy’s and mine’s Imagine Cup 2010 submission. The project dubbed Tesla is about conserving and monitoring energy consumption across a home or office network (or any other for that matter). Tesla has 2 aspects the client side which records data of individual computers and the server/web side which will create new users, networks and display device data.

Currently the user experience is not that amazing; however, the website almost looks awesome and the functionality exists! We are looking to expand in user experience of course; however, we are also looking to make functional enhancements (if we get into the next round). These include enhancing our database of known products (to get more accurate statistics), making an awesome visualizer for the data, and giving alternatives for your computer components in order to reduce consumption. I hope you guys enjoy our video. More coming from us soon on this hopefully!

Someone also mentioned how this could also be applied for overclocking machines and trying to get the biggest bang for the buck/power.

PS: We were running on fumes while recording this, please discard my lame explanations :)!
