Steven - A drop camera that can be utilized for filming an area over a period of time to gather proof of criminal activity. The camera will be rentable by organizations like restaurants who require proof of criminal activity for the police.
Shaheen - Tracking mental development of kids by correlating it against physical activity. Want to utilize sensor data and provide high-level statistics. Want it to be a platform for all your data.
Have an analysis package that reads data from a sensors. Require a hardware engineer/IoT specialist so they can validate their algorithm and move forward toward building their iOS app. Package can get 97% of input data from sensors accurately. Track the activities the person is doing.
There’s awesome synergy possibilities with the BioFeedback group. Want to show being healthy is good for mental health. Want to provide a correlating factor between activity and mental health. Steven can put them in touch with someone who does a lot of data analysis once they have a validated prototype.
Research Kit - Open-source Apple project to correlate Parkinson’s early detection against activity stats.
Massimo - Developer Mobile/Python. Shoe inserts to track activities. Research project from CNU. Got python code + arduino sketches + sensors + how to put it together and get suggestions
Kris - Website admin: moved site to Jekyll. Soylent soup project from last week Doers Group
Ideasmeetings.org now moved to Jekyll so that we don’t have to create accounts for everyone. Jekyll doesn’t use a DB and uses static sites, which are less hackable. Connected to GitHub pages and you get awesome hosting. Just make a txt file and can put it in it. It uses basic markdown code which makes things easier.
Soylent Soup for Charities. Solving food nutrition for nutrient deficient individuals in Vancouver. Want to do it within the community but we should try it ourselves. August 5th we can do a Soylent Soup test. We’re looking for 5-10 people. We are willing to take donations/ingredients instead of cookers.
If we find that we can make it and people are interested in it - it might be valuable to have a fundraiser to raise money to make a bigger batch. Strathcona did a DIY soup.
We’ll do it in Kris’s building and hope we don’t die. Interested parties: Shaheen, Steven, Yana, Riz, Kris.
Creative Co-Coworkers will have Bar B Qs on Friday nights @ 6 o’clock. There will be free beer + bbq for the ideas meetup.
Doers Group: Sunday nights have a Doer’s meeting from 7-10 either at Creative Coworkers or Kris’s social room. We have bar b q facilities. We want to focus on “Doing” not just cooking but if Doing is Cooking then we can do that.
Interested: Riz, Kris, Simarron - expanding my business. design websites + short films to communicate ideas. want to be around people who want to take ideas from vision to reality Do have an idea - Discovered that back in the 80s my parents designed a board design to optimize garden yields. It looks like a board game. It provides a strategy on how to place your plants in your garden. It became a Canadian best seller but parents didn’t follow through with it. Want to make a gamified app that you can use different data from your phone to optimize your garden growing given environmental factors in your geolocation.
Geolocation would be really valuable to optimize what kind of food that you grow. E.g, growing different food in Syria due to climate change.
Monetize: Food sharing Data play? Up-selling of gardening products. Can look into Greenhouses | Hydrophonics to divest and get a yearlong applicable product, that’s also location independent. Is Marijuana the niche for this? Kris can make an intro to the top marijuana guy in Canada.
Shaheen will host a UI/UX Prototype design workshop @ lighthouse labs next week
MVP: Simple app that will populate the field with “tomatoes” and optimize the use of space. Utilize geolocation to provide suggestions on what kind of plants work in a particular area.
