Wondering for the past two weeks: is it pronounced soldering or sodering?
Walking through Soho, the sensors I encountered seemed to be largely reflective of the neighborhood itself. Because Soho is mainly comprised of retail and apartment/office units, the majority of sensors observed were building entrance combination keypads or fob scanners, anti-theft sensors at store fronts, and touch-screen ATM machines. Other sensors I noticed were reverse sensors on vehicles, smoke sensors in buildings, and a variety of touch-screen handheld devices such as mobile phones and iPads.
The most fascinating sensor I saw was an old emergency FDNY red call box that seems to have stood the test of time and the emergence of mobile phones. It’s function seems almost obsolete in a sense (if it even works), but nonetheless still adds character to the NYC streetscape.
