DisplayCabinet is the output of 24 hours with Tim Burrell Saward and Dan Williams “connecting up our things to the web, our environments to our things, and our things to us” as part of the Pachube Internet of Things Hackathon.
Ben calls it a "design hack" - and it is - but it's got great vision and good ideas - it feels very right::
" It’s far from perfect but this is just the beginning. It’s sketching in hardware and I have a tiny confession to make. The information being displayed isn’t live but I really don’t think that matters because it’s very much an early prototype. A day one prototype even and the choices we made were based on actual data that could be taken from Pachube and other APIs. Given a bit more time, some additional hackery and a few asks this project would be pretty much fully functional."
