The charts are up!

chartsWe’ve put the physical charts on display in our windows at Tenison Road and Station Road. They’re presenting a mix of live sensor data being collected on Tenison Road and polls being answered in different ways throughout the neighbourhood. The display will be up till Christmas.

One of the pie charts (left) is dedicated to a daily question that anyone can answer, so everyone’s invited to participate. Vote everyday at

At the Victoria and Albert

We’ve just presented Tenison Road’s physical data displays and Bullfrogs at the Victoria and Albert Museum. As part of London’s Design Festival, we showcased the data technologies – soon to be introduced on Tenison Road – to a public audience invited to consider the collaborative and physical making of digital things. Apparently, over the weekend 13,000 people passed through the part of the V&A we presented in – quite something! Here’s a few snaps: Continue reading

Data-Instruments go live at the Street Party

Poll results: Council proposals

A couple of weeks ago we put 8 posters up on Tenison road and Devonshire road for one week asking about the importance of each one of the council proposed street changes for the neighbourhood (check related post here). You  can find the council proposals here

We are excited to say that 283 buttons were pressed across all the posters during this week. You were mostly in favour of all of the proposed changes (except from the changes on Devonshire). You were more supportive of proposals 6, 3 and 1 (Canon’s green, Felton street junction and Mill road junction).

Here are the results from the posters; the inner pie chart represents the total number of votes cast whereas the outer one the number of votes excluding suspect multiple votes (based on time of button press).

Feel free to comment or contact us if you have any questions on the data, posters etc.

Proposal 1: Your support for Mill road/Tenison road junction

Polling interest in the Tenison Road public consultation


To compliment the interactive posters placed along Tension Road, we’ve set up an online poll to gauge how many people are attending this Thursday’s Public Consolation on the proposed traffic/environmental enhancement scheme.

Make sure you’re counted either by using the interactive posters or the online poll!

(Results from the posters will be added to the online poll later this week)

PosterVote: Providing the tools to support local decision making

PosterVote is an electronic poster consisting of two parts: the printed poster with the question and answers that you can print by using this webapp and the hardware which is a thin, flexible circuit board with 5 buttons and 5 LEDs to be placed at the back of the poster. The two parts can be laminated together to protect the hardware from environmental conditions.

Do you think that PosterVote can be used on Tenison too?
