Wearable Tech Helps Irish Dairy Cows Produce More Milk

#Wearabletech for cows? Come on! Great story on NPR called “High-Tech Tools Help Irish Dairy Farmers Produce More Milk”. Worth listening to.

The story features the MooMonitor app made by Dairymaster. Check it out.

This video explains how things work and the technology involved:

What’s also worth considering here are the user requirements, the context of use that shaped the technology: changes in external environment such as the ending of the European (more...)

Another Echo Hack from Noel

Noel (@noelportugal) spent a lot of time during his holidays geeking out with his latest toy, Amazon Echo. Check out his initial review and his lights hack.

For a guy whose name means Christmas, seems it was a logical leap to use Alexa to control his Christmas tree lights too.

Let’s take a minute to shame Noel for taking portrait video. Good, moving on, oddly, I found out about this from a Wired UK article (more...)

Chromecast Guest Mode Rules

If you read here regularly, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of the Google Chromecast.

It’s helped me cut the cable, I gave it as a Christmas gift two years in a row (to different people), I have several in my home, and I carry one in my laptop bag to stream content on the road.

And if you’ve seen any of us on the road, you may have seen some cool stuff we’ve built for (more...)

Noel’s Amazon Echo Hack

Noel (@noelportugal) is one of a handful of early adopters to get his hands on the Amazon Echo, Amazon’s in-home personal assistant, and being the curious, hacker that he is, of course he used an unpublished API to bend Alexa, that’s the Echo’s personality, to his will.

Video, because it happened:

And look, Noel’s hack got picked up by Hackaday (@hackaday), kudos. You can grab his code on GitHub.
