How to Make the Internet of Useless Things

Andy Sigler

Anode is an ensemble of toys, instruments, and objects, hacked and made wireless, to allow their interconnections to be played with.


Anode is a collection of found objects turned connected, each simple on their own, but reimagined through their links. Homemade wireless microcontrollers are built for each device, done at a fraction of the cost of ordering online . A touch interface allows users to patch links between separate objects, using any browser. Combining affordable production with easy links gives way for heightened experimentation while making the internet of everything.
