Inspired by the Nest Protect, this project aims to monitor the office environment from 5 different sensor units positioned around the office. One unit is an external unit which will be used to monitor local weather including temperature, wind direction, wind speed and rainfall.
Each internal unit monitors temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, methane, smoke, sound, light and motion.
All of the units stream data to a central unit which collates and pushes data into the cloud for later use. An API is also being developed which will allow the data to be used in conjunction with libraries such as D3.js or Processing.js to produce some dynamic interactions.

The aim of this project was to rapidly prototype three different approaches to make a musical bottle. The first prototype was built using an arduino mini pro, an mp3 shield, speaker and simple circuit which when broken triggers a mp3 to play. The circuit was built into the screw cap so the music was activated when removing the bottle top.
The second prototype made use of near field communication tags (NFC) which were stuck to the inside of the bottle top. When a user tapped their phone against the bottle it would open a browser, open a link encoded onto the tag and open the correct webpage. The page consists of branding and a HTML5 audio player. Depending on the hash in the url the player will load the correct mp3 for the user to play.
The final prototype is very similar to the NFC approach but makes use of RFID. When a tag (which is attached to the inside of the bottle top) is scanned it sends the tag id through to a node server which plays the correct mp3 through a laptop speaker.
