|Description||A Geocache right outside the space to attract new, tech-savvy members|
A Geocache is a small, waterproof box that contains at least a Guestbook. The GPS coordinates are shared on the Internet for others to find. Geocaches are accessible for everyone. Read more on geocaching.com
Most geocachers are tech-savvy people. Wouldn't it be nice to have a Geocache that shows off our best work to attract new members?
- Multi-Cache (multiple stations to find before the location of the final box is revealed)
- Very tech-focused
Let's collect ideas for different elements below.
- LEDs in front of our windows for morse-code/animations/binary encoded messages
- hall-effect sensors to trigger actions (user has to bring a magnet!)
- simple mechanics like pulleys
- web interface reachable from wifi
- only usable at a certain time of the day
- small piezo speaker that beeps only a few times a day helps to locate one station. We could use a plain old DCF-77 alarm clock.
- Items for Trade: Lasercut stuff, 3d printed stuff, small and cheap electronics/arduino clones.
- show code or coordinates as wifi network name (ESSID)
- (Fake)-Stone with NFC-Tag that has do be placed onto a hidden NFC reader somewhere
