Thanks to the Permaculture Association for publishing the report on our SICSA-CHIUK-sponsored workshop on permaculture and digital interaction :). I believe we’re also getting a wee blurb in the next Permaculture Works newsletter – which has a reach of 1400 members.
Undergraduate Group Projects
I’m also in the process of defining group projects for 3rd year undergraduate students. One is on the delivery of video content triggered by Near-Field Communication (NFC), and another is on the delivery of audio content based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) iBeacons. A third could look at connecting with permaculture gardens in the developing world via ‘buddy benches’, a fourth at an interface for a digital magnifying glass, a fifth at revealing hidden worlds via augmented/virtual reality – such as; soils, the history of a place, or seasons out of season, and a sixth at gameification – such as real-life tamagochi’s.
I’m hoping to do a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course with Graham Bell running from Feb – Aug 2017.
I’d also like to do a tour of permaculture ScotLAND sites in early 2017 to get inspiration for our proposed interactive garden at Merchiston.
Napier Estates meeting
We have a meeting with the Estates people on 16th December to discuss the interactive garden idea.
