Help us Hack the Digital Atlanta Lounge

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Digital Atlanta Lounge is a space where you can chill out between sessions, co-work (and check back in on your 'day job'), and take a break from all of the excitement of listening, learning and networking. Of course the lounge has fast free wireless internet. But it will also showcase sensors and new technologies which bring the internet into the environment (we call this "ubiquitous computing"). And you can help! Join a team of expert hardware hackers/technologists/designers as we hack up prototypes that will digitally augment the lounge area for the duration of Digital Atlanta. Facilitators will help you to create working prototypes based on sensors, cameras, LEDs, projectors and small screens.
 
Join a team to:

  • create a co-working desk that makes it easy to see who's hard and work and who's up for a chat
  • measure and display the busyness of the lounge via door-based sensors as well as wifi-measurements
  • create a projection of real-time tweets, upcoming events, weather, and traffic reports
  • some other top-secret ideas, too!

 
You don't need experience (though that's good too -- we'll be using Processing, Wiring, and Arduino). All you need is the desire to make something cool. Remember, "the best way to predict the future is to invent it."
