Waste2no participated in the CulturalDigital.Br Festival at MAM Rio de Janeiro in the Experience Sharing and Bricolabs Zone!
The Share Wall prototype was designed using the Arduino open source platform. Here is a link to the Arduino code:
Stuff Bubble visualizes/displays the things that become accessible to the user as his/her performance improves on Stuff Cloud. Good performance is rewarded with more access.
StuffMart is a large scale facility that serves as the last stop of an underused (undesired) item. Here, things of all sizes are automatically added to the Stuff Cloud through a smart pallet system, and can be SWAPPED, RESOLD and RECY-CLED. StuffMart plugs into defunct shopping malls, aban-doned warehouses, and suburban big box stores.
StuffPod is a distributed network of flexible, large sized stor-age pods that can temporatilly store, advertise and display objects intended for SWAPPING, RESELLING or RECY-CLING.
Stuffpod units are designed to plug into pervasive parking infrastructure and can be coupled with other ‘smart’ urban networks in the city of Toronto like the Zip Car and Au-toshare car sharing systems.
ShareWall is a distributed network of storage spaces in a flexible wall configuration that facilitate high frequency SHARING, SWAPING and RESELLING of things. Share-Walls can be installed as urban furniture or as a building ammenity. The Sharewall can sense the unique RFID’s of things and users making the exchange of things more accessible to more users in a public setting. The modular units of the ShareWall can be grouped in various configurations in response to urban context.
Stuff Threshold is a set of distributed devices and interfaces that mediate the everyday domestic use of things with the Stuff Cloud. Cabinets, doors, chests, closets, etc. are colonized by RFID thing sensing and usage pattern recognition technology.
Stuff Cloud is an RFID and web based technology that digi-tally enhances the SHARING, SWAPPING, and RESELL-ING of things in a city. Stuff Cloud redefines the relationship between people and their things beyond the single owner pattern, thereby extending the life of things and contributing to the reduction of urban waste.
