Homesense is an open research project collaboration between Tinker London and EDF R&D. Bringing open collaboration methods of online communities to physical infrastructures in the home selected households will create their own smart homes and live with the technologies that they have developed themselves without any prior technical expertise.
Over the autumn of 2010, 6 households across Europe will be selected to take part in Homesense and as a result, have access to the latest in open source hardware and software tools. Homes in the UK, France and Italy will decide what they want to do with the tools in their own context, and share the results with the world. Each household will receive support from their own local expert, also selected from the DIY electronics community, who will help them design tools, tackle problems as they emerge and help share the experience of living with smart things in the home.
