We thought this would be of interest to people here!
Tinker London has recently launched the ‘Homesense’ open research project across Europe, which looks at how people build their own DIY ‘smart homes’.We’re looking for people who are brilliant Arduino users and who would enjoy playing around with new toys that aren’t on the market yet. This would all happen in an open way; people will own their online presence in the project and they get to contribute and build up their own expertise publicly. They’ll also help build knowledge in homes with no prior technology expertise, helping people understand what it means to do research in an open and engaged way and what technology in the home means.
The project goes live this autumn and there are more details here: www.homesenseproject.com. If you’re interested in taking part or if you’ve got any more questions, please contact Georgina on firstname.lastname@example.org.
