Welcome To The Wockets Wiki!

Wockets are small, wireless accelerometers that send body motion data to mobile phones. They are being developed as part of an open source effort to create low cost, motion measurement devices for hobbyists, researchers, and developers interested in creating software and devices that measure or respond to movement. For an overview of the Wockets project see the Wockets Project Home Page.

This wiki is the place where the real work gets done. Would you like to use Wockets, or do you have the hardware or software expertise to contribute to the design? If so, please get involved.

How to participate:

1. Sign up for a wikispaces account.
We encourage you to edit these pages and post comments! So that we can avoid spam on this site, though, you'll need to get a wikispaces account (free) and then we need to add you as a contributor. Click here to join.

2. Join one or both of the project mailing lists.
Wocket-announcements : Join this list if you are a researcher, developer, or hobbyist who wants to learn more about Wockets and keep tabs on the project with occasional, moderated updates.
Wocket-developers : Join this list if you are a techie interested in helping to develop the hardware, housing, or software for Wockets. This is the place to talk about designs, new ideas, etc.

3. Monitor the Wiki
You can setup your wikispaces account to send you an email when the wiki changes. You can select getting an email when there is any change, a new discussion entry, or changes only on specific pages or discussions. You may feel this is too much email because when someone is actively editing pages many emails will be sent, so here's a trick to receive updates on all wiki page edits and discussions in a daily digest email. Go to FeedMyInbox.com and copy and paste this URL: http://wockets.wikispaces.com/space/xmla?v=rss_2_0
You may also choose to receive feeds on specific pages and discussion areas. Simply click the "Notify Me" tab on the page of interest and copy the URL of the desired feed.

4. Contribute to Wockets!
Edit these pages and, via the Discussion Tabs, ask questions and critique designs.

5. Spread the word
