  • Problem: Government does not release the accurate figures of radiation. Lack of data, tradition of not sharing it. Japan is notoriously bad about certain types of transparency. That TEPCO does not release the numbers is not a new thing. Our colleagues asked us about what was being said in the Swedish news, and also had to rely upon foreign news channels.
  • Joi Ito, MIT took to internet to stay abreast about what was happening in his home country. The scarcity of reliable information prompted him to reach out to experts all over the world, things snowballed very quickly. One week after the earthquake he and a small group of people had founded Safecast is a global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurements to empower people with data about their environments. With help from crowdfunding via Kickstarter and private donations.
  • Solution: Safecast is a global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurements to empower people with data about their environments. which aggregates radiation readings from government, nonprofit, and other sources, as well as into Pachube, a global open-source network of sensors.
  • One of them is a B-geigi, same formfactor as a Bento, the Japanese lunch box. Geiger counter, GPS receiver and SD card, Difficult for everyone to have a a geiger counter, there was a huge shortage as well.
  • Safecast have been driving across Japan in order to take radiation level readings. The data form each trip can be viewed on its own Google Map.
  • Safecast have been driving across Japan in order to take radiation level readings. The data form each trip can be viewed on its own Google Map.So far Safecast has collected over 750,000 data points which they have made accessible through a number of useful Google Maps. The Safecast Map depicts a heat map of the radiation readings. It is possible to select individual squares on the map and view the average readings.

  • That last project also integrates with something called Pachube / Cosm, an impressive global and crowdsourced platform for sharing real-time environmental and energy data. London-based Pachube also offers up an API and other tools for tinkerers and developers like Japan's Seigo Ishino, who created "Wind From Fukushima." The free Android app is basically a mashup of radiation sensor readings, Google Maps, and wind data from across Japan--the result is a real-time display of not only where the radiation is right now, but also which way it's heading. 
  • Problem: Some 27 billion gallons of raw sewage is dumped into the harbor every year. This comes from Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) that open when the sewer system is overloaded
  • Percifield has devised a little M2M system with an Arduino (Open-Source electronic prototyping platform) connected to his handset. The idea behind this project is to allow NYC residents to help reduce the amount of pollution in the harbor. The idea is to enable residents to understand when the overflows happen and reduce their wastewater production before and during an overflow event. SMS/tweet.A proximity sensor in the sewers measures the water level at the CSO and transmits the data, via the cell phone, to a database. That information can then be shared to all users of the system, either via SMS, Twitter,
  • or even a wittily named “Bulbino” – a light bulb installed in one’s house that changes color based on the data received.
