Duality: The Connected Change Dish

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

Matt Richardson and I worked together on a project called Duality for Intel and Mashable. Mashable paired creators, equipped them with Intel-powered devices and gave them 16 days to build something special. We created an internet-connected change dish.

The dish can alert users with a subtle signal that you can program with a reminder for when you’re on the way out the door or just coming home.

It was a quick deadline, but a great project to work on. Thanks Matt, Lauren, Tony, and the rest of the film crew.
