The Data Sensing Lab ( gave attendees of Google I/O a taste of the world of the future u2014 where we move in a sea of data, our environments monitored, measured, and weighed. Learn about the sensor hardware and the production process that built it. Five hundred mesh networked sensor motes, producing over four thousand individual sensor readings about the environment, distributed all through Moscone West at one of the biggest conferences of the year. Come behind the scenes with Kipp Bradford and Alasdair Allan, and see how the Data Sensing Lab team managed to pull off this massive installation on a ridiculously short time scale.
