This module is also looking promising. Focusing on technology that can enable us to interact with the environment around us and information in the hertzian space around every thing everywhere everyware (see where the module name comes from now?). We will be undertaking a fair few workshops around tech in this area, but my main focus will be on Augmented Reality and RFID/NFC tech as I will hope to use these additional skills to help with my final project and aid with discussion in my dissertation.
We will also get the opportunity to work with a group of Architect students, to see how both our skill sets will work together. As we are both taught similar creative processes and a lot of our concepts can add to each other. So it should be cool to see what we come up with.
A little IBM (sensor stuff with arduino's) work this year is also on the cards too. So that should be good to get some help with the hardware side of things.
Below are a couple of video examples of projects that will be similar to the work we will be encouraged to produce. I have a few ideas of things I want to capture. But I will have to work on it first... Just a shame I can't do something like the BBC did in 'London from Above' attaching loads of GPS's to taxi's!
This video shows the process to create a long exposure that can enable us to see the radio waves form around the RFID chip, giving us visuals of what is otherwise invisible. This is a great idea and I want to try this myself.
I am quite tempted to make a little wireless visualisation video like this too:
It would just be a better version of my wifi map really...and then some.
