“Machinery of Data” (MoD) is a data driven competition where makers, artists and crafters build machines and art that is driven by, reacts to and is inspired by South Australian open data that is discoverable on Data.SA the South Australian Government data directory.
Three stand out entries were showcased on Sunday the 1st of November 2015, at the Adelaide Mini Maker Faire held at the innovative Tonsley site.
This years entries included an artistic display that represented how long it takes to get to work (pictured left) and a mobile air quality sensor for your bike. The winning entry was “CommunUV” (pictured right) a prototype of a UV rating display, that can be used to encourage awareness about sun protection at community events.
Congratulations to CommunUv for winning the $1000 Best In Show prize.
Congratulations to all our competitors, with your creations we are promoting the value of open data for our creative industries.
