the parallel universe in which “internet of things” referred to the broad availability of cheap, generic, user-friendly sensors divorced from specific use-cases. ex: instead of a “smart mug” whose function is deeply compromised by the presence of built-in sensors that feed data to the vendor before granting it to you, you pick up a waterproof heat sensor and pop it into a reusable teabag 🤷‍♀️🤖


@darius i hadn’t heard of makey makey! that looks pretty neat 😮

@garbados @darius they are! My brother used one in NUMB to enable the actors to trigger sound effects by touching different objects on stage during the play.

I helped him with the software, which was trivially easy thanks to the MakeyMakey
