We "implanted" most of a ThrowieTalkie as a fashion accessory for the CyborgCamp pre-party at Vidoop. We ended up giving what became the wearable data logger prototype to FredGerendasy for his 11-year old son.
At the event itself we proposed replacing the implant's LED with two OneWireDigitalThermometers making a wearable indoor/outdoor thermometer. We've some experience logging from these devices:
For ear placement, the idea is to cut into a form ear-plug making for controlled-depth ear insertion and outside temperature isolation.
Conversation revolved around how high spatial and thermal resolution make subtle effects visible. What would the wearable thermometer see? Hard to say.
Some other things worth observing with temperature:
We presented a survey of "time exposures" made by collecting data with the computer and rendering it in unusual ways.
The unifying concept was the artistic practice of "seeing". Here are the four examples used in the talk:
The talk was streamed live to the net by BlazeStreamingMedia. The 40 minute presentation and 20 minute Q&A can be viewed here:MetaMedia Cooperation, Eugene, Oregon.
Our camp participation has spawned other pages.
