    • MiniBUG
    • People Dan             Power mangagment / battery  within wireless sensor devices Former Sentilla     City College Rob Wireless Energy Networks Sensor Device Designer Grounded Power  &   ITP cognitive psychology NYU Alicia Research & Development Rapid Prototypes Test Kitchen Bug Labs With help from: Jeff Kirsch, School of Visual Arts projects.jeffkirsch.com Jarek Lupinski, Stevens Institute of Technology www.soniktech.com
      • Minibug is complete. If it cost a grand you would still want one. Everything has been thought of.
      • Minibug is farsighted. The entire prototyping process has been considered and elegantly addressed.
      • Minibug is transparent. It removes the barriers to prototyping a new idea by performing right out of the box, extending itself over the Internet to anywhere, and interacting easily with other systems and devices.
      • Minibug is easy. Every aspect just works. The makers of Minibug have sweated the details.
      • Minibug is kind. It was made with relentless empathy for the user and the prototyping process. It's weird how the device seems to know what you need.
      • Minibug is possible. Each aspect we've envisioned already successfully exists. Rather than introducing new technologies or concepts, it's our combination that's the special sauce.
    •   Initial Brainstorm
    •   Categories Minibug Sports Data Environmental      Sensing Ambient  Indicator Energy  Tracking
    • Verticals  
    • Possibility 1: Sports
        • Gyro/acceleration/temperature
        • Curated data log
        • Wrapped with Physics curriculum
    • Possibility 2: Ambient     changeable, text enabled  Status signs outside room
    • Possibility 3: Energy Sensing
        • Provides sophisticated answers:
      •          Am I wasting energy?
        • Social comparison component
        • Smart Grid component: protects from brown outs
    • Possibility 4: Environmental Sensing
        •   Soil & Water Quality Reports
        •   Light /pH / Humidity sensors
        •   Solenoid automatically waters
        • Wrapped in biology curriculum with ABET Accreditation
    • Technology Review Idigi Blackwidow & Yellow Jacket Arduino Grounded Power module Telit Online Python Tutor
    • Technology UX 1. Open minibug package, plug it in, instant online!   2. Entering generated keycode collects your data   3. Interactions online through a browser   4. wrapper branded miniBUG API   5. Ability to return to a factory reset of device.
    • Next Steps
        • Which verticals to sketch in a low-fidelity prototype?
        • Is miniBUG module-based?
        • Should it work with current IDE or with BUGswarm?
        • One Input device + curriculum
        • One Output device = Ambient indication
        • Wireframe the UX
