Working in groups of 10, realize a future vision for technology enhanced learning where internet appliances enhance the studio-based learning experience for students at Carnegie Mellon.
Why is it important to know who is at each meeting (aren't most people usually already aware of who is missing?) and how would the table know which information is important to send the absentees? I like getting the data from linkedin, very clever!
Do messages or updates come in continuously in the Grimm or do they come in a controlled manner? How do you deal with people altering or editing what others have done?
Does the incorporation of a phone case as the embodiment for the peer learning solution impede the function of the cell phone? What happens if Vishar needs to use his phone? Would there be a concern for willingness to wear a device that monitors your heart rate in class? Even though it can be designed to be anonymous, respect for privacy should be considered.
For your occupancy map prototype, can you pretend to use something like that Locus API that Alanna's Alex the Plane team is using for airports? Maybe look at how their business model works and you guys could pretend like you'd be using the same thing but for university maps (and then you could scale to colleges everywhere!)
I am not sure I understand the wearable part. Does the person need to actually be wearing it or should it be embedded in the class desks so that people don't accidentally leave without them?
What do you do when some one is using their phone to do their work? Is there a different kind of interaction you can use to trigger availability in the future (maybe not for this project)?
Do we want to integrate it with the concept of the sharing economy? These are shared resources we are looking to allocate more effectively.

How do you determine how to transmit information from one flote to another?
Come up with a vision, guys. We need to tie it all together. This is the future of studio spaces everywhere.
