Energy Conservation using Sensory Technologies
Its always interesting seeing how large scale commercial industries have tapped into the ideas of sensory and actuator rich environments. By chance I came accross an entertaining advert by Honda, that asks what if "things knew when they weren’t be used, wouldnt we save a whole load of energy." Of course we are used to systems that hibernate when they haven’t been activated in a while but Honda looks at some of the more unlikely parts of our built environment that could sense and respond to human activity. I personally think there’s more that can be done with these kind of reactive technologies so that they don’t just act with fixed behaviours, but none the less I think its a nice piece of film that I thought I’d share.
