People who want to play with Nokia Accelerometer
- Spec Sheet
- Ilan Shifter's Code
- also see processing code for next week for how to decode the bytes
- hard to see on/off switch on the side
- pin code is 0000 for pairing
- If you are using the Logger midlet be sure to set the preferences after you go to "start logging" to delimitation = Start Char and Length , startchar = 255 and length = 28 . Also you might download a fresh copy of the midlet, I fixed a few things.

Ideas for Capturing An Objective Picture of Your Experience
Shoulder levelness monitoring using time-lapse video.
- "Daniel Soltis" I want to hook up FSRs to the bottoms of my feet (or more likely the insole of my shoes) and track pressure on my feet over the course of a day. see when i am walking, fidgeting, etc. (also see if can do so without breaking the connection to the FSR).
- "Daniel Liss" lately, i seem more and more interested in light and the color of light. iíd like to track the different colors of light that i move through during my day. i started thinking about ways to measure that: first, three photocells each gelled to a different color band (rgb), then realized that the phone that i would be sending data to/through already had the perfect sensor in it. i hope to use the lens to capture images which can then be interpreted for color data. later, maybe iíll pair this with some sort of autonomic response data to see how iím effected by it all...(so far, i've got mobile-processing capturing images inside the N95)

- "Jeff Sable" I will try to monitor my own conscious awareness of my posture throughout the day using the nokia accelerometer attached to my chest, and see how the log reflects the degree or amount of times I check in with my body and mind. I think how we carry our bodies is a mostly unconscious affair, and trying to be constantly aware of this seems a bit forced, but it also seems analogous to the act of meditation where you bring yourself back to the zero point of breathing without judgement when ever you catch your mind wandering off.
- "Justin Downs" A couple ideas
- record light levels and maybe sound through the day then with a pot manually keep track of the perceived change in light and sound levels. this will hopefully get a picture of when a compensation becomes "conscious" and when we already planned for it.
- old idea with new inspiration from Lesley. get a heart monitor and have a camera and tilt sensor hooked into a logging device to see what's behind me and in what position my body is in at the most stressful (highest heart rate) parts of the day.

- "Lucas Longo"
- One illusion I have is that I am a very active person when I am awake and when I sleep I am motionless. To test that I want to use an accelerometer to see how much of my day is actually producing movement. I would use the Nokia accelerometer coupled with a bluetooth equipped cell phone to record and log the information. I would attach the accelerometer to a hat to include class room time as active time - if it was in my pocket the accelerometer would be still. I am also interested in measuring how much I move around at night while sleeping.
- Another illusion we have is that pictures represent more than what is actually framed. I want to enhance that illusion by recording the gps location, the ambient sound during the time I am taking pictures as well as record what music I was listening to during that moment. This will add some context about the framed object, its surroundings as well as the photographer's mood. I intend to do this by coupling a GPS, a sound recorder and my iPod/iPhone to the camera. The click of a picture should trigger the GPS for a reading, record ambient sound for 30 seconds and log the name and artist of the song that is playing on my iPod.
- ASSIGNMENT - Data Logging
- "Sinan Ascioglu" I am tracking the eye movements of the viewers of specific scenes from some movies. I call the project 'Eyes on You, Tarantino!' and further documentation can be found on http://msaportfolio.com/itpedition/?cat=4.
- "Michael Dory" (working with Tom Jenkins) We're focusing on light and sound combined with physical movement, so we're going to have a small mic (to watch sound levels, not record audio), three photo cells (each covered in a red, green or blue gel to filter light and give a picture of the ambient lighting conditions), and an accelerometer in a small housing. These sensors will be read by an Arduino Mini, talking to the cell phone logger program via Blue SMiRF. It will be tested on a shoulder, a wrist and a shoe. We're hoping it will paint a fair picture of the conditions of the day.
- "Sarah Grant"
- "Sonia Nelson"-The more imposing the noise pollution I experience, the more compromised my sense of self. Interested in tracking the aural assaults I endure as I navigate the metropolis. From rising and shining to when I lay me down to sleep...
- "Tom Jenkins"
- "Yan Yan Cao" I intend to investigate the touch sense/tactile of human body and observe what our hands experience over the course of a day. I believe that touch to a soft, huggable surface gives sense of comfort and could raise positive emotions whithin us : )
- "Younghyun Chung"
- alertness adviser. Idea from Csikszentmihalyi's beeper method, though it's a subjective one, and scuba diver's Dive tables. 1. receive an SMS occasionally 2. send a level of alertness to server 3. get info. Receiving SMS could be, 'how alert you are 1..5' or '31 + 15 - 23' for checking accuracy and agility (but, SMS has a delay problem). The info of step 3 could be a 'you need a meditation now', etc. And, convergent with heardbeat sensor. This system could be improved by applying EEG and fMRI// related page: Alertness Matters, Alertness Solutions, NYT
- equilibrium. Log the every turning angle using sensor, bluetooth, bluetoohphone. Before sleep, turn extra degrees to make an equilibrium a day.
- passaging time. I think we all have some sense of time passage. Using bluetooth devices, get a specific time amount (ex. 16 minutes) and then press button at the beginning and at the point you think 16 minutes are passed.
