I think it went really well.
I was terrified it would stop working, even though I had tested it 4 times this morning, twice in the room and in the scarf, but technology is never reliable enough for an important presentation!
It didn’t though, we didn’t get high enough levels for the LEDs to be lit, but it was sending it’s data away happily to twitter, which I was so relieved about!! We didn’t get many questions, so I’m going to assume that’s because we explained everything well in the presentation 😉
One question that was interesting was whether we thought decibear really would change people’s behaviour. I’m not sure it would to be honest, but I have to say that just wearing something, even for testing, that I know is listening to ambient sounds, really did increase my awareness to them. Not sure it would be enough to change my route to uni on a cold day, but I definitely was more aware.
So, just one more lose end, here’s a link to the final code in the blog (slightly different from the last one copied to here): https://www.dropbox.com/s/93z4t59x4n7msc0/decibear_tweet.pde
Aaaaand we’re done!! So long Decibear, it’s been fun!
