Pervasive Media Studio Lunchtime Talk: Crowd sourcing air quality data

Where: Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, 1 Canon's Road, Bristol, BS1 5TX

When: 05 October 2012 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Damon Rand from Clean Energy Prospector will be joining us to introduce the amazing Air Quality Egg project. The Air Quality Egg is a low-cost environmental sensor capable of sensing NO2 and CO2 (and optionally O3, VOC and radiation). The data is realtime, open and published to the Internet for anyone to make use of it. The project has been ???crowd funded??? on Kickstarter by 926 backers. The Air Quality Egg is developed by a community effort, born out of groups from the Internet of Things Meetups in NYC and Amsterdam and London. We are designers, technologists, developers, architects, students, and artists. This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week. Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday. Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who???s interested in what we do. After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm. Let us know if you???d like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around.
