Of Bears, Bats, and Bees: Making Sense of the Internet of Things | Blog | design mind

Tue, 09/04/2012 - 15:16 -- rprice

Bats are what prompted me to write my “Mobile Apps Must Die ” blog post as their app-for-every-bat approach just isn’t sustainable. As we get more and more bats in the world, the user overhead of app maintenance is going to break down. This is the primary difference between bears and bats: bears carry their interaction within them as they can afford big screens and pointing devices. Bats, being small and inexpensive, need to have it added on by another device.

Talk to Me, One Machine Said to the Other « adafruit industries blog

Fri, 08/10/2012 - 01:13 -- rprice

Ocado, an online grocery store in England, prides itself on its delivery of refrigerated foods: When the company says the goods will arrive at a certain temperature, they mean it.

The promise is more than a marketing boast. Aided by microchip transmitters, heat sensors and a fast-growing form of wireless communication, the boast is a measurable fact.

Inside each Ocado delivery van is a SIM-card module the size of a postage stamp that monitors the air temperature. The sensor sends data to a computer used by fleet managers back at headquarters near London every few minutes.

Open Internet of Things Assembly | June 16 & 17th 2012, London

Fri, 07/06/2012 - 00:07 -- rprice

We, the undersigned, believe that the class of technologies currently described as the “Internet of Things” has genuine potential to deliver value, meaning, insight, and fun as well as a totalitarian control society. [Some words about potential to support evidence-based policy, catalyze the emergence of self-aware publics, and enhance the specifically political agency of human users.]
