Project Bench

ABOUT

Introduction

This was a collaborative IoT project. We built a smart bench with Arduino Yún. It tweets when someone sits. The implication is to let public furniture join the online discourse and encourage people to come outdoors.

My ideas

Three design goals for the bench: It's self-explanatory, therefore it has its Twitter name painted; It's intelligent, therefore a persona is given; It's blended-in, therefore it's a board on top of a regular bench.
