Real-time monitoring : Metrics for masses!

In corporate world we stress lot of importance on metrics,KPIs,business analytics.With so much advancements in the area of Business Intelligence the buzzword is 'Real-time Monitoring'.

One such system that was installed recently in US looks really fascinating.
Like the National Debt Clock - the new number to watch is the Carbon Counter, which tracks the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.A 70-foot-high billboard was erected yesterday on Newyork across the street from the debt clock.
As of yesterday, the sign clocked more than 3.6 trillion metric tons
Climate change is the topic that is of concern to the whole world.To have a real time measurement system that could make atleast one person a day think about effects of Greenhouse gases and climate change is a small step in right direction.
Agile and Visual factory concepts embraces these practices very much.
How about having a Visual counter in office entrance stating about the total unproductive time used in a day especially in meetings :-)

well, by default we can count all meetings in the 'unproductive' category...

Also, this counter uses 40960 LEDs , surprisingly it is very efficient and is carbon neutral through the use of carbon credits.
