Invisible Crowds aims to raise awareness of the sheer volume and diversity of invisible waves that are constantly bouncing around public spaces.
For this proposal we developed the above presentation and a more detailed writing below.

The instant an Arduino or Raspberry Pi connects to the web (with a public IP) it is out there for anyone – or anything – to detect.
In our connected devices class, my classmates and I all saw this vulnerability firsthand. After leaving our connected thermostats on for a week, we experienced our devices being scanned and sometimes attacked by machines from across the globe.

The connected thermostat I was building earlier is now complete! 🌡🌡🌡
This thermostat works like a Nest Thermostat (though clearly not as pricey); collecting the current temperature and sending that information to an online server.
Here is the repo for the project.

Cryptomania is a sculpture designed as commentary on the cryptocurrency pandemonium. It lights up based on the 1 hour price change (a percentage value) of a particular crypto-currency – Ethereum.
Note: For details on how the physical enclosure was made, read more here. For details on the code and wiring of the crystal, read more here.

Lets call it CRYPT0MANIA – the connected crystal.
This post is about the crystals digital details – because it works – it really works!
