Pachube Design Activity – a Design Activity with Many Hands

Pachube is a platform that enables you to store, share and discover realtime sensor, energy and environment data from objects, devices and buildings around the world, facilitating interaction between remote environments, both physical and virtual. In this 90-minute collaborative design activity, Usman Haque, Pachube creator, will be giving a basic introduction to Pachube and then leading a collaborative design activity to show how data from around the world (and from the person next to you) can be quickly shared, modeled, and applied. Time permitting, we will be having a short discussion about the potential applications for connect-sites, like Pachube, and what impact they might have on HCI discourse. This session is part of the CHI Design Community’s series of events this year, focused on the contemporary confluence of data and design.
