Dowse workshop in the very active IoT ethical scene here in Amsterdam...


Dutch Design Week

October 2016

Dowse was exhibited at "Why does my refrigerator know my birthday?" during the 2016 Dutch Design Week.

Mozilla Festival

August 2016

One hour in which visitors of the Mozilla Festival learned what Dowse is and why we were building it, how they can get aboard with developing, marketing, and creating an IoT awareness around it. All in the context of creating Internet of Neighborhoods instead of ‘smart cities’.

During the Dowse workshop, participating designers and artists got introduced to the possibilties of reading traffic going in and out of devices connected to the Dowse network. They started writing the traffic into text files, detecting the device id's and so forth, visualized and conceptualized the constant data leaking.

Orwl

September 2015

We met very informally Olivier Boireau, from Design-Shift, the creator of ORWL in the CCC camp this summer. We spoke about ideas and have seen his beautiful project, [ORWL]: the attempt to build and deliver a secure computer by design. We met again in Amsterdam to receive one of the first prototypes of [ORWL] to run Dowse upon.

CCCamp
