  • Question: was UDOO a partner in this iteration of Turin's Sherlock game?  If not, was there an "instructable".  I am interested in knowing more about the tech?  PS - I did see the video.  
There were further clues spread around the venue which could only be “read” by using Augmented Reality app Aurasma (which the Sherlocks had been previously instructed to download the letter from Inspector Lestrade).

  • Next Meetup
"A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order." - Jean-Luc Godard 
On Tuesday July 26th we'll examine "The Physicality of Narrative."  Our relationship to the stories we tell and share is shifting.  As storytelling spills off screens and into the real-world it becomes tactile in ways that were never possible before. Augmented Reality (AR), the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are creating playful environments that transform the physical spaces in our lives into canvases for storytelling. But what lies beyond traditional running times, act breaks and mediums? What is the storytelling grammar of physical space and is it possible for narratives to learn and adapt to our surroundings, interests and needs?
A special evening of Learn Do & Share 
Talks on 
"The Physicality of Narrative" 
"Adaptive Play Spaces"  
Plus join Nick Fortugno (world renowned game designer and founder of Playmatics) as he sits down with innovative creators who are breaking new ground in immersive theater.  
Design Session
After the talk/group discussion we'll shift our efforts to the design of the upcoming Sherlock Holmes & the Internet of Things event. This session will include a special exploration of the play space at the Film Society of Lincoln Center as we continue to design and prototype the connected crime scene that will be staged at the New York Film Festival later this fall. 
This is a FREE event.

  • excited to share some news we just launched a new Learn Do Share fellow initiative with the State Dept. My hope is that we ca kickoff a fellow initiative around Sherlock later this year. Something that provides opportunities for participants and / or High School students. Will be discussing this with IBM next week. More news as I have it. In the meantime if you're interested to learn more about the Learn Do Share / State Dept fellow please visit http://fellow.learndoshare.net

  •  Definitely  something we need to encourage., wonder if there is a dir. of local Fab and Coder Labs? 
Vivien L
  •  I met someone from Mozilla and heard that they are putting a focus on IoT this year. I will do a quick followup with their program director and find out more info. 
Lance W
  • Love the Mozilla possibilities. Have some contacts too that I can reach out to here in the States. Vivien Leung let me know what you find out on your end.

  • *Note: I'm not sure how I managed to change the title of this Hackpad, but my mistake :P I changed it back to "Working Groups for Sherlock Kit" because I can't remember exactly what it was originally titled. I think there are some more weird copy/paste errors going on on this Hackpad that I will try to fix, sorry about that!
Lance W
  • No worries. Think it's been resolved. Hackpad can act up like that at times.
  • Sherlock Holmes Kit 
A kit that helps provide info, code, resources and tips. It's goal is to help onboard participants and prepare them so they can find teams and participate in the annual Sherlock Global Challenge.  
Onboard participants  
Make it easier for participants and partners to understand Sherlock IoT
Ensure that the connected devices that are created can talk to each other
Provide the information needed to jump in and start coding etc
It only given to those that complete the 1st phase MOOC a self paced EDIT version. 
The kit will help participants to form teams 
  • around ideas 
  • geo location 
  • done through a marketplace of ideas ? 
Is provided to those who have completed the self paced EDIT MOOC which opens in May 2016
In terms of development we'll be working on this online and also at upcoming meetups.

Listen to the call recording here
Gill W Great to hear this everyone, thanks for recording it Lance Weiler , can I ask who is speaking at 7 & 11 mins in ? I'm keen to explore ideas of creating collaborative story led workshops & design principles through layers of personal narratives and and be keen to chat more about therapy and play.
- Fears about AI: taking jobs, replacing humans, "taking over"
- This is interesting idea you could do a 'The Murder of Me' workshop experience exploring the idea of individual fears about AI that could shift to a collective optimism about 'The Birth of We' When I teach workshops about of iot I humanise technology by asking folk to think of ideas like " how would you invite pedestrains to dance/ excercise while waiting for the green man?, How would you make walking home in the dark safer, How would you make a mobile town square etc
