Physical environment & Distance communication

Looking at how we use digital to create a quality of social interaction ‘Polymedia’ is one of the concept mention by Daniel Miller ( Professor of Anthropology at UCL ) said in his text that “not so long ago most people wishing to communicate at a distance had a limited choice of media at their disposal, mainly expensive international phone calls or letters. As a result, the choice of medium was largely the result of constraints of access and cost.” “Polymedia is an emerging environment of communicative opportunities that functions as an ‘integrated structure’ within which each individual… More

Prototype II

After combine all 3 sensors and make them work to read the environment around them. Next step is to try to find the accurate stat and visualise data from the sensor. Another stage that need to be explore is about finding the device so this tool can operate by itself while it attaching in the bin. The suggestion from our tutor is to look at the technology using 3G that allow you to put the simcard to make it online. Here is the prediction graph indicate what would happen in the dumpster.    … More

Awaken Hidden Disease

An article from BCC on 4th May talking about how climate change could possible melting permafrost soils that have been frozen for thousands of years, and as the soils melt they are releasing ancient viruses and bacteria that, having lain dormant, are springing back to life. This is the possible evidence to point out that in the future,will would be dangerous for all of us and seem likely that flood would make it more severe. http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20170504-there-are-diseases-hidden-in-ice-and-they-are-waking-up… More

Preparing for second prototype!

This is the sketch of the second prototype in 3 different ideas Tasting 3 different sensors. Distance to detect amount of waste inside dumpster ( how full it is) Humidity and Temperature ( to predict type of food ) Natural gas , Methane gas detection ( to predict type of food and it freshness )… More

Hello I’m here

Beacon : A beacon is an intentionally conspicuous device designed to attract attention to a specific location. I will use beacon to get the attention from all freegan network. My aim is to develop the beacon system inside the dumpster including food detection and amount of waste inside it and transfer this information to get attention from Freegan network. My first prototype experiment on the value of the sensor that will detect the eatable waste inside the bin. The project that I have been looking at is call ‘Foodsniffer’ a start up product that you can use to detect if the food… More

Reverse Engineered : MUSIC MEMORY BOX

The brief is to choose the project and reverse engineer a project proposal. Title  : The Music Memory Box – How to trigger memory from the person who are living with dementia ? Field of Study : This project is planned to explore about the ability of recognition from the person who live with dementia and using the human sensors understanding to create the product design that could recollect, reminisce and reconnect them with their loved one. Context : The advance medical technology these days make people live longer then ever before, the number of elderly people has been increase over the past decades.There were… More

Freegan Network

According to my research, I map out the structure of the Freegan Network follow my understanding. In the map, it shows how freegan connect with the the local store for bin riding or local restaurant for event a nice negotiation for foods. Also, how they merge themselves with the people fridge and Olio app. This also shows how all others freegans from different part of the city gather together for a meet up in order to share their stories ,tip and location for bin riding.

Introducing Contamination Detector 1.0

In 2050, Sea level will rise and effect all the big cities near by the coast.  According to the temperature that sharply raise over decade and the increasing amount of ice melt in both poles. One of the research point out that the Sandy-like storm that used to occur every 500 years, before the greenhouse gases produced by human began. Now such a storm arrives once every 25 years and if the Sea level continue to rise sharply, by 2100 the storm would visit the city every 5 years. London Thames barrier was designed just to be able to… More

Tackle Sea level rising !

  https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/mar/20/atlantic-city-miami-beach-sea-level-rise?CMP=fb_gu According to the article “Atlantic City and Miami Beach: two takes on tackling the rising waters” by Oliver Milman in The Guardian Website, they talking about how Sea level rise is making floods more common. They also mention the Sandy-like storm that used to occur every 500 years, before the greenhouse gases produced by human began. Now such a storm arrives once every 25 years and if the Sea level continue to rise sharply, by 2100 the storm would visit the city every 5 years. They are also talking about a foot higher… More
