FieldKit is an open-source software and hardware platform (environmental sensors, app, and FieldKit.org website) that allows individuals and organizations to collect and share field-based research data, and to tell stories through interactive visualizations. Designed to be easy to deploy customizable, FieldKit can be adapted to meet the needs of diverse research teams, from biology and ecology to marine and environmental sciences, from post-doc researchers to elementary school students. FieldKit offers a simple platform for enabling live data expeditions, and for the creation and deployment of environmental sensor networks or in situ monitoring.
Haroco-12 is an emotive robot with tactile elements, designed to aid in everyday activities and circadian cycling.
Lighthaus is addressing the lack of earthquake early warning systems (EEWs) available to the American public.
We’re applying herd protection & data crowdsourcing to natural disasters. Physically, our devices will be small enough to fit in the palm of one’s hand. They will be plugged into the wall sockets of our customer’s homes and office spaces, monitoring the acceleration of the wall and streaming this data to our servers. When an earthquake strikes, our neural networks will first make certain that an earthquake is in fact underway. They will then immediately send warning messages to all sensors in the region of the incoming shockwaves.
Cherishables are small physical devices that store individual digital collectables. These handheld objects express the unique, and one of a kind, genetic traits of the digital creatures that inhabit them. In blockchain games, participants typically buy, sell, and breed, digital assets that take the form of pixels on screen. Cherishables are very different in that they physically represent uniqueness through various movements and actuations. With Cherishables, each asset is not just seen and heard, but felt as well. We imagine a bright future for digital collectables, and believe Cherishables represent an important step in bringing digital collectables to life.
