Produced by ‘tinkerer’ ‘Lady Ada’ it uses Xbee radio to communicate wirelessly back to her computer providing a break down of energy consumption from each room. This information is then tweeted at intervals and put onto an energy monitoring website.

  • tinker.it arduino.cc makezine.com/projects (search for phone) http://openmoco.org/node/23 (look at hardware requirements)
  • The internet of what? Things surround us and we surround ourselves with things. We’ve either chosen them or they have been chosen for us. They are sometimes described as “smart”, often and mostly dumb.

  • The internet of stuff? Things, “devices”, products…
  • I am my things Simple consumer reality, but is there more to it?
  • I am my devices
  • Communication through Non-Verbal Verbal Keyboards / Touch
  • You My devices Your devices My things Your things The Cloud Me
  • Devices that know Nabaztag Nike + iPod Poken Swinx
  • Arduino.cc Cheap and easy way to prototype with technologies Started in 2005 100 K units sold
  • Decoupled technology RFID Bluetooth Xbee (wireless protocol from the construction industry) Sensors Wifi / ethernet GPS
  • Stuff that knows and tells
  • I am consuming! Kill a watt
  • The baby is here! Kickbee
  • The cat is here CaTaLog http://www.nermal.org/
  • I am thirsty Botanicalls
  • I am here Bubblino from Adrian McEwen
  • New product possibilities Guardian Twat race Rewind Centograph
  • Loosely joined Google Android Arduino Make Pachube Nintendo MIT
  • Pachube London, UK
  • Challenges How do you switch them off? How do you tell them to shut up? How do you lie? “ Nonverbal communication makes it easier to lie without being revealed.”
  • The future is almost there New investment from telcos Partnerships with smaller businesses A decentralised view of technology provision User-centered / generated solutions An internet of it all.
