The plentitude economy: reduce environmental impact, DIY and more social connection @PRIaustralia. via kate-estivill

Renewable energy, [inter]networked technology, and the plenitude economy — all of which hint to us that distribution might be the solution to our current ecological and economic woes.

The CEE (control · experiment · explore) is an analog multitool. By sourcing and measuring voltage and current, the CEE opens up a world that has previously been restricted by monolithic, bulky, and hard-to-use tools. Learners can explore a wide range of concepts including everything from AC/DC electricity and resistance to work / energy, torque / speed, heat flow, and electrochemistry. As tinkerers, we’ve used our proof-of-concept boards as a multimeter to sort components in our junk bins, a programmable interface device to test new sensors, a power supply to fuel our breadboards, a web-based datalogger, and every possible combination therein. 

The mix of scripting languages like Python and JavaScript, an easy-to-use web interface, and powerful hardware will allow anyone to CEE the world around them as never before.

Description: Scientific literacy is necessary for a functioning society in the modern age. Scientific literacy is not science education. A person educated in science can understand science; a scientifically literate person can *do* science. Scientific literacy empowers everyone who possesses it to be active contributors to their own health care, the quality of their food, water, and air, their very interactions with their own bodies and the complex world around them.
