Ideas of things : Loaded dice

Thursday, December 6, 15:15-17:15h

Ideas of things is a loose organisation which brings together tools and methods aimed at idea generation and definition in IoT.

During this hands-on session, Albrecht and Arne introduce Loaded Dice which is a tool for designing scenarios revolving around the Internet of Things.

Loaded dice consist of two dice, a sensor die that can measure six different qualities and an actuator die that has six different outputs. This way they can transform sound into light, light into temperature and temperature in motion.
