indoor energy harvester update


The inDOOR Harvester was installed on a door leading from the stair well to the main lobby of the ITP program on the fourth floor of the Tisch Building at NYU in May and has been running since.  I had to change how often it uploaded to the dataBase as my php script would crash when faced with pulling over a certain amount of data at a time.  Have yet to figure out this problem and why.  These sort of things can only come up with months of such invaluable user testing.  I am currently working on something to give users some sort of immediate physical feedback when the capacitor is close to charged – some interesting and descriptive use of the electricity produced.  Please stop by 721 Broadway, 4fl to take a look is in the area while its up .
