OpenIoT Design Sprint Anstruther

O

Spent a week on at an OpenIoT design sprint hosted by Mozilla and the University of Dundee in Anstruther, Scotland. The themes that emerged were around connectivity (or lack thereof), user research, and working with local communities:

  • Fisheries Museum (community home)
  • Farmers (clever countryside)
  • Teens (covert communication)

Here’s a quick overview of the project descriptions and some photos of the prototypes. My apologies for the quality of the photos; they were snapped on my phone for some quick documentation. You’ll find more (and likely better) photos on Twitter, Instagram, and the participants’ blogs. (Search for OpenIoT and Anstruther.)
