Living Labs: the Big Brother of sensor data

One of the amazing things of Internet is this bunch of nice people that work hard to publish freebies for us lazy lurkers in the web. And sometimes it is even legal :D

This is the case of PlaceLab, the MIT experimental living lab within the House-n project. Located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, this house-environment has been designed as a flexible and multi-disciplinary observational research facility for the scientific study of people and their interaction patterns with new technologies and home environments. Volunteers do live there in a Big Brother-fashion for variable periods of time and they agree to be monitorized via a variety of sensors deployed all over the house. MIT people have been so kind as to share with us their PlaceLab datasets, with nifty explanations on data format, source of information, sensor nature and anything we may need to reuse the information in our own experiments.
