I’ve been looking at breaking out the ATMEGA328P-PU chip (that is used in many Arduino boards) to be able to reduce the footprint and power consumption of the boards.
The Wearable Technology show at Excel during March 2015 was a huge display of mostly current products on the market now. Queen Mary University of London was exhibiting there and our work was research based and mostly in prototyping stages which made it one of the most unique stands there.

Our York Hackspace group set up at the Manchester Maker Faire over the weekend of Saturday 26th / 27th July. On the official site this event is described as: “the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.”

This time round I was able to speak with a lot more people both about my own practice as well as theirs. It really is inspiring to meet and talk with people who are similar in ways of their technology use and exploring taking the technology further. This year there was a wearables exhibit that showcased a lot of the history of where these ideas of todays use originated from and we had a chance to see and hear (and try!) some of the old and newer tech – as described to us from some of the people who helped create and inspire today’s visions.

I’d love to find some people who could help the study by:[symple_box color=”blue” text_align=”left” width=”100%” float=”none”] When you make a journey, say to work, out for the weekend, to a friends, that you would either take a photo of the contents* of the bag you are taking with you, or just type up the items you bring – all the items.
So with that said – could you do one of the following? Continue reading What’s in Your Bag / Backpack / Purse… ?
