ActiviTeaImagination | The Lab
The Lab built a system to capture the number of cups of tea and coffee made on each floor of Imagination’s offices. The #Activitea project was started to better understand and illustrate activity within Imagination’s London offices.
The prototype consists of 3 objects: a ‘tea counter’ object housing an ultrasonic sensor, a receiving/transmitting object housing an Arduino and a digital transmitter module and an optional solar power object housing 4 solar cells which produces enough power to support the project. The ultrasonic sensor senses the presence of a cup which is then logged by the Arduino and submitted to Cosm website (www.cosm.com). Cosm plots the data on a graph that shows when and how many hot drinks have been consumed each day.
