Pixel Heart Heat Changing Mug
Available for purchase at thinkgeek for $11.99 USD. Responding to heat, this pixelated heart turns red when filled with a hot beverage, like your life-enabling morning coffee.

This little fella’s been added to the Flickr group: Photos of 2012: 52 weeks
Looking ahead to 2012, we decided to start a new photography project to track how we take and share photos in the coming year – a space for posting pictures of events and moments which mark your year.
The 52 weeks project asks users to share one picture each week – whether it sums up that week for you, portrays something eventful in your life that week, or reflects on one of the major news stories in the week.
There are loads of 52 weeks projects out there including year in pictures and more on on Flickr here – for iPhonographers in particular there are also groups like Instagram 52 weeks. We hope in our 52 weeks project we can explore further the possibilities of iPhone photography, but also tell stories which document our year in pictures. At the end of 2012 hopefully we’ll be able to look back and reflect on the news this year, and be able to appreciate each other’s special moments.

The Internet of Things, a term being bandied to the point of almost meaninglessness now it’s hit the mainstream of the NYT and the BBC. Yet, while the mainstay of the media struggles to describe how and why smart sensor arrays are going to mean you spend less time in traffic, ultimately pay more for your electricity but make sure your fruit is always fresh, there is a quiet revolution taking place.
The action taking place is the creation of what I call the Sensor Commons. Why is this a revolution? Because as a population we are deciding that governments and civic planners no longer have the ability to provide meaningful information at a local level.
Two posts summarise this activity and its implications beautifully for me.
The first, by Ed Bordern from Pachube, is on the creation of a community driven Air Quality Sensor Network. His passionate call to arms highlights that we have no realtime system for measuring air quality. Further, what data does exist and has been released by governments is transient due to the sampling method (ie that the sensor is moved from location to location over time). Summarising a workshop on the topic, he discusses how a community oriented sensor network can be created, funded and deployed.
The implications of this quiet revolution are discussed by Jauvan Moradi in his post on how open sensor networks will affect journalism. Jauvan discusses how citizen data will re-establish the localised roots of journalism by reporting on issues that matter locally and with accurate, real time data to help drive the story. Obviously Jauvan has an interest in media so he’s taking that slant yet this is but one of the many implications of the Sensor Commons.
