Tokyo Hackerspace & Safecast at MIT Media Lab

By Unassigned Robot - Posted on 03 June 2011

Pieter and I went to MIT Media Lab to attend the Safecast meetup and discuss the radiation mapping project. Along with meeting everyone involved in Safecast on the US side, we got the chance to hang out at the High/Low Tech lab with Leah Buechley. Leah was the designer of the LilyPad Arduino and also works on craft-oriented applications of technology. I was struck by the similarities of hearing her talk and listening to Mitch Altman talk. One of the other things I was impressed with is that the supply jars in the High/Low tech lab don't have the usual things like screws or parts. Instead, as everyday items people in the lab use, they hold things like toothpicks, ping pong balls, popsicle sticks, and other interesting items.

We'll be working with MIT Media Lab on the mapping visualization project and also trying to find interesting ways to use radiation sensing in Japan. More to come on this later :)
