I've added some more details to the project plan that I hope clearly lay out the goals and plans for the project. Please leave a comment or ping me directly if you have any questions or ideas for things you'd like to contribute!
I'll be ordering some IoT dev boards here in the next day or so (either Adafruit Huzzahs or Particle Argons or Photons) - if you already have some laying around that you'd like to donate, let me know!
If you're interested in getting involved, but aren't sure what you'd like to do, just drop me a message. There are all sorts of fun things we could do that I haven't included in the project plan, so if you'd like to do something a little different, I'd love to hear about it!
This project is looking for:
- Designers or artists who can help with prototyping use cases, create illustrations, or working on other collateral for communicating the project concept to non-technical and technical audiences.
- Electronics hackers who would be comfortable grabbing a pile of sensors, parts, and an IoT dev board and putting together a prototype device. Bonus points if you can solder and want to try making something a little more reliable than a breadboard project!
- Front-end devs who would be up for working with other devs with diverse backgrounds to spin up a lightweight dashboard that may or may not involve a build system, an app framework (like Vue or React), real-time charting, and API interactions.
- Digital fabrication / 3D printing enthusiasts who can model simple enclosures or functional parts that can be printed quickly (maybe 4 hours or less).
