Did you ever wonder what happens to your packages when the travel through the mail? We're going to find out! We have hundreds of Kickstarter backers who will be shipped live sensors collecting data every 10 minutes while shipping from our site in San Jose, CA, to destinations around the globe.
Participants can either be part of the data collection by ordering a PocketLab sensor on Kickstarter, or just download and analyze the data when the project starts shipping in May 2017.
We are collecting temperature, humidity, pressure, and orientation data every 10 minutes for the duration of the shipping, and all this data will be uploaded anonymously and open source. Citizen scientists will be able to add meta data, like tracking info and images, and then download and analyze any way they want.
