Theo and I visited Darja at her flat last sunday. Darja is very enthusiastic and has already imagined plenty of projects she would like to implement with the Homesense kit. She seems particularly interested in the energy cycles of her living space. For instance, she expressed interest in visualizing the thermic exchanges in her living
room, which lacks good thermic isolation because of its single-pane windows. Needless to say, I think we have plenty of fun and interesting projects to explore in the next three months.
Sunday was also an opportunity to meet Georgina and Daniel from Tinker London. They are great people, and talking with them was a nice a way of being made aware of the “international” scope of the experiment.
Finally, it was also our first introduction to the kit itself. It is clearly presented, and I kind of like that it abstracts some of the nitty-gritty of fiddling with electronics: no need for bread-boards, easy plug-and-play type wiring etc. It will be interesting to see how much we can with the basic setup without dropping to lower-level tinkering.
