ActiviTea – physical data-scraping in action
The crew from Imagination Labs wanted to track the number of cups of tea consumed at their office. They designed Activitea, a project incorporating a series of sensors placed throughout the London Imagination office that count the cups of hot drinks made in every kitchen.
“The prototype consists of 3 objects:
1. A ‘tea counter’ object housing an ultrasonic sensor.
2. A receiving/transmitting object, housing an Arduino and a digital transmitter module.
3. An optional solar power object (housing four solar cells), which produces enough power to support the project.”
