The Ifs - Coding Without Screens for Ages 3 and Up
The Ifs are a family of robots that bring technology closer to children. With the help of their creativity and imagination, kids will learn how to code and develop logical thinking. The robots come with sensors and actuators that can be programmed using two different parts: if (condition), then (action). The combination of these two parts enables them to interact with each other and the rest of the world.

The Opt-Out Cap — Mac Pierce
With the rapid implementation of advanced facial recognition for both commercial and governmental purposes, individuals are unwittingly incorporated into a state of total surveillance by simply showing their face in public. Your face is your identity and is the thing about your body that most identifies who you are to those around you. The individual needs a way to disengage with those systems at will.

The Opt-Out Cap serves this purpose using common materials that are easily assembled, with all the materials costing less than $30 total. The cap also conceals it purpose by hiding the panels inside the cup of the cap when not in use. When deployed, the printed panels block the users face and replace it with an alternate. This misdirects tracking and while not flagging the user as displaying an obscured face.

ManyEars: Microphone Array-Based Audition for Mobile Robots
Intelligent systems would benefit from being able to localize and track sound sources in real life settings. Such a capability can help localizing a person or an interesting event in the environment, and also provides enhanced processing for other capabilities such as speech recognition. To give this capability to a computing system, the challenge is not only to localize simultaneous sound sources, but to track them over time. The ManyEars project propose a robust sound source localization and tracking method using an array of eight microphones.

I do this mainly through PineappleJazz, a consultancy where I help organizations think strategically about technology and the future. A specific issue I talk about a lot is Social Cooling. It describes the large scale chilling effects that arise as the internet develops a new layer on top of it: the reputation economy.

I wrote the book “Design my Privacy“, a beginners guide to ethical design for the Internet of Things, and regularly share my views through articles, through presentations at events like TEDx and SXSW, or through presentations and workshops for consultants, designers and policymakers.

Multi-award winning feature documentary GENERAL MAGIC is the untold tale of how a great vision and epic failure changed the world.

The ideas that dominate the tech industry and our day to day lives were born at a secretive Silicon Valley start-up called ‘General Magic’, which spun out of Apple in 1990 to create the “next big thing”. General Magic shipped the first handheld personal communicator (or “smartphone”) in 1994. The film combines rare archival footage with powerful honesty from the “Magicians” today, reflecting on the most influential Silicon Valley company no one has ever heard of.

Helium LongFi Protocol for LoraWAN
Existing wide-area wireless protocols suffer from a variety of drawbacks which create challenging circumstances for a ubiquitous wireless network. Our desired implementation would be open source, lightweight, secure, and provide a universal routing and payment mechanism that allows the network to be used anywhere in the world as long as Hotspots are paid for routing traffic.

Providing wide-area wireless connectivity in a manner that is implementable by both Helium and third-parties requires a free and open protocol that Devices, Hotspots, and Routers understand.

This proposal is not an all-encompassing specification but lays the foundation for further HIPs and a reference implementation which will serve as the specification.

Consistency Made Simple : PLOP
Plop is what I like to call a "micro-generator framework." Now, I call it that because it is a small tool that gives you a simple way to generate code or any other type of flat text files in a consistent way. You see, we all create structures and patterns in our code (routes, controllers, components, helpers, etc). These patterns change and improve over time so when you need to create a NEW insert-name-of-pattern-here, it's not always easy to locate the files in your codebase that represent the current "best practice." That's where plop saves you.

Makani energy kites produce electricity by harnessing energy efficiently from the wind.
We're developing energy kites that use a wing tethered to a ground station to efficiently harness energy from the wind, generating electricity at utility-scale. As the kite flies autonomously in loops, rotors on the wing spin as the wind moves through them, generating electricity that is sent down the tether to the grid.

Can regenerative agriculture reverse climate change? Big Food is banking on it.
Known as regenerative agricultural practices, those methods have not only improved the land of his ranch, White Oak Pastures, they also have led to the land becoming a carbon sink, pulling carbon from the air and storing it in the ground. As a result, Harris’ ranch has been able to offset a majority of the emissions related to its beef production. A key supplier of General Mills' EPIC Provisions brand, the ranch has become a model of how to transition to a form of farming that the company says can provide a solution for climate change.
