Pachube is Rocking Our World Right Now

I recently discovered Pachube ( pronounced “patch-bay”) after hearing about it on the Canadian radio program SPARK. After doing some research I only found one Vermont location that is actively submitting readings. What an exciting find. We look forward to working with pachube, arduino and max/MSP.

A recent project that got a lot of attention for Pachube involved it being used for citizen geiger counter readings in Japan, after the earthquake there on March 11, 2011.

Here’s a link to those geiger readings.

Here’s a link to the interview on Spark.

Here’s more about Pachube:

Pachube (“patch-bay”) connects people to devices, applications, and the Internet of Things. As a web-based service built to manage the world’s real-time data, Pachube gives people the power to share, collaborate, and make use of information generated from the world around them.

Ringtones, Makers and Max/MSP: Right here in VT

Our sister studio Sesamedia New Media Design + Strategy is helping us distribute our many, many ringtones. You can participate in the naming contest and download free ringtones in thenew media arts section of Sesamedia website.

In other sound news, through Vermont Makers, we connected with a few local artists and technologists who work in max/MSP. Plans are coming together to offer max/MSP workshops in Burlington in the late fall of 2012. It is thrilling to meet and hopefully work with other max/MSP – arduino enthusiasts here in rural Vermont! We’ll keep you posted and if you are interested in attending the workshops, please go over to the Vermont Makers site and sign up for their mailing list.

Speaking of Vermont Makers, don’t miss our event this Tuesday night April 3 Blinkies, the Quadcopter, Thing-O-Matic and more!
