Most people walking don’t realize that they are surround and interact with hundreds of sensors everyday. We were asked to take a day and make a note of all the sensors that we run into. At the beginning of this project I thought maybe 10 would be the max but I found myself constantly writing a new sensor every few feet. Above are a few images of some of them and below is the entire list. Take a day for yourself and do the same, the results are insane.
