Welcome to Sherlock Holmes & the Internet of Things Kit
In an effort to help people get up to speed with the project we're developing a living breathing Sherlock Kit that includes logistical info, tips & tricks, sample code as well as thoughts on collaborative practice. We welcome your input as we work to build a resource that can evolve over time. We welcome your suggestions, comments and questions.
What is Sherlock Holmes and the Internet of Things
Sherlock Holmes & the Internet of Things is an ongoing prototype developed and run by the Columbia University Digital Storytelling Lab and Learn Do Share @Columbia that explores new forms and functions of storytelling. Designed to be an open R&D space (released under a creative commons license) that experiments with shifts in authorship and ownership of stories, the massive collaboration also uses a detective narrative to examine the policy and ethical issues surrounding the Internet of Things.
The goal of Sherlock Holmes & the Internet of Things is to build a massive connected crime scene consisting of smart storytelling objects. This summer and fall teams will create, design, build and test prototypes that will be plugged into a number of crime scenes located around the world.
