Introduction: AirCasting Luminescent Apparel
The AirCasting Platform
AirCasting is a platform for recording, mapping, and sharing health and environmental data using your smartphone. Each AirCasting session lets you capture real-world measurements, annotate the data to tell your story, and share it via the CrowdMap.
To start recording, mapping, and sharing sound level data for your neighborhood, simply download the AirCasting app to your Android device and press record. Don’t have an Android device? Check out the AirCasting maps to see if someone has already contributed data for your area.
AirCasting Luminescence uses a IOIO microcontroller connected to the AirCasting app over Bluetooth to illuminate LEDs in response to the sensor measurements received by the AirCasting app: green for low intensity, then yellow, then orange, and red for high intensity. AirCasting Luminescence was developed to communicate sensor measurements without the normally required reference to a screen interface and to spark interaction between AirCasters and people located in their immediate vicinity. AirCasting Luminescence . . . make a fashion statement with your sensor measurements!
