Inspired by the Paper Signals from Google, we developed Domestic Widgets as part of a research project at the Northumbria University in Newcastle. This project explores how the Internet-of-Things can help us in our everyday lives. The Widgets allow you – rather than us – to easily make use of (public) data that is widely available around us. As such, we can see what kind of data you might find usefull, how you would like to represent this data, and how this representation is used in everyday life. David Verweij, who is a PhD Candidate at Northumbria, is running this project, and is available for any questions, suggestions or remarks! Contact him through the form below.NorthumbriaContact
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Domestic Widgets core components are its microcontroller, tiny servo and the usb cable. You can basically incorporate these components into any object you have, or make! However, to get you started, we developed a small and easy foldable base. These four steps below are all it takes to bring your widget alive!
