The Liquid Router makes you aware of the data you are leaking (and the multi-billion dollar industry based around these third-party trackers) during your internet browsing experience.
Users interact with an Ipad and the router. The ipad servers as the physical access point to the browser. The LIQUID Router visualizes the third-party tracker requests for your data during your browser experience. Join the Liquid Router and see which sites want your data. A raspberry pi acts as the router, triggering a peristaltic pump when requests made by certain third-party trackers (sourced from multiple ad-blocker lists) and transfers a color liquid to a lower vessel. Through time, the vessel will transition color, highlighting the veil-lance economy where your free-time is liquidated.
